Jennifer Lawrence has revealed that she is in the process of developing a documentary series. It is said that this docuseries will investigate “#MeToo,” “Time’s Up,” and gender wage gap conversations in Hollywood.
While speaking at an event to promote her new film, Red Sparrow, the actress accidentally announced that she was working on a project with former E! News anchor Catt Sadler, who recently quit her job at the network after discovering she was being paid significantly less than her male co-host, Jason Kennedy, despite the fact that they basically held the same position. The news comes after Lawrence announced that she’s taking a year off acting to pursue activism.
In January, Sadler disclosed to The Hollywood Reporter that she’d formed a sort of friendship with Lawrence: “Jennifer Lawrence has become a friend of mine — really, a hero of mine. Long before my own experiences, her voice has been an empowering one and one I’ve always admired. To have her in my corner is hard to put into words, to be honest.”
Lawrence is no amateur when it comes to topics such as these, having been an active voice in Hollywood for quite some time now. She penned an essay for Lena Dunham and Jenni Konner’s Lenny in 2015, addressing her own battles with pay gaps regarding her male co-stars.
Meanwhile, in early February, Sadler wrote a compelling essay for Coveteur, emphasizing the significance of projects such as this one: “This isn’t about one person or a few — it’s about us. It’s about holding each other up as sisters, challenging the status quo, and refusing to accept less than what we deserve.”
