Olivia Colman spill the beans over pay disparity in Hollywood; ‘Would earn a f–k lot more if I was Oliver Colman’

Olivia Colman recently spilled the beans over pay disparity in Hollywood, saying that she would have made a lot more if she were a male actor.

The actress-producer opened up about the discrimination in paying wages that she has experienced in the film and television industry during a recent appearance on CNN’s The Amanpour Hour.

“Don’t get me started on the pay disparity, but male actors get paid more because they used to say they drew in the audiences,” stated The Crown actress. She countered their belief saying that it has not been the case for decades now, but they still use it as reason to not pay women equally.

The host Christiane Amanpour questioned the star if she has been faced by pay disparity, despite being an Oscar winning actress and having featured in many hit projects such as The Father And The Lost Daughter, Hearstopper, and The Favourite. “I’m very aware that if I was Oliver Colman, I’d be earning a fuck of a lot more than I am,” she stated and claimed to know one pay disparity which is a 12,000 per cent difference.
