Daniel Radcliffe just did the most INSPIRING speech out about gender inequality
Daniel Radcliffe has spoken out about sexism in Hollywood... and it was amazing.
It started in 2014 when Jennifer Lawrence spoke out about how she earned significantly LESS than her male co-stars in American Hustle, and since then we've had Julianne More, Zoe Saldana, Emma Watson, Kristen Stewart and now Daniel Radcliffe speak out on the issue of gender inequality.
"I'm incredibly glad gender inequality has come up because I had just f*cking naively thought this was not an issue any more because how can this still be happening? It's crazy." he told the Telegraph.
The Harry Potter actor was "shocked" to learn of the pay gap between men and women when the Sony emails hit the press.
"The thing I can't help but think is 'Who? Who is doing that? What guy is sitting in a studio somewhere thinking, 'let's f*ck the girls out of some money?'"
"It's definitely time for our industry to step up. Especially if we want to pride ourselves on being a liberal, progressive industry then you can't be doing that."
“The conversations that have been had over the past few years about the type of roles for women in films, the fact that these conversations have all taken place over the last few years and become much more open, should mean that you do start to see changes,” he explained.
“And I feel like I am starting to see changes, particularly in the type of roles for women."
Good on you Daniel!
