Jennifer Lawrence, Diane Sawyer Talk ‘Hunger Games,’ Wage Gap

Jennifer Lawrence spent the day with Diane Sawyer for an ABC News interview that covered the actress’ feelings about her career and her experiences with Hollywood’s gender wage gap.

Over the course of sharing Kentucky BBQ and archery lessons, the starlet further explained her essay that Lena Dunham’s Lenny Letter last month, in which Lawrence said she blamed herself for not negotiating for more money in her contract for “American Hustle.”

“I felt like I had to say something. We need to talk about it,” Lawrence told Sawyer. “I would love to see change.”

Lawrence also revealed how she wants the entertainment industry to improve. “I would just hope that there’s no longer a separation or a difference of, ‘Oh it’s a female-driven movie,’ or, ‘Oh my God, it was a blockbuster, but it was led by a woman.'”

The interview also covered Lawrence’s writing collaboration with actress-comedian Amy Schumer. “We both are incredibly blunt and incredibly opinionated,” she said.

Lawrence also reflected on how this past year affected her personal and professional life.

“When I wrapped ‘The Hunger Games,’ I wrapped these movies that have been my life for so long and they had to come first in everything,” she said. “Being 24 was really like, ‘Who am I without these movies?'”
