Los Angeles: Actress Jennifer Lawrence thinks she is to “blame” for the gender wage gap as she finds it “awkward” negotiating what she should be paid.
The 25-year-old “Hunger Games” star said it is her own fault that there is such a divide between what the film industry pays men and women, reported CBS News.
“I feel awkward negotiating, I feel uncomfortable asking for more money, I don’t want to seem like a brat. I don’t want to seem like all these things that are only words that are used for women. There was no one to blame but myself [for the gender pay gap].
“I want to be that person who will say that thing that’s really hard to say, that’s really awkward and really difficult. One day I want to be able to just say it, and not make a joke, and not try to make it cute, but to just say it.”
The Oscar-winner previously penned an essay about the issue, insisting she should be paid the same as her male counterparts.
