Emma Stone is an Oscar winner and one of Hollywood鈥檚 hottest stars, but that doesn鈥檛 mean she鈥檚 immune to the sexist problems many women unfortunately deal with in their careers. The La La Land actress just revealed in a new interview that her male costars have actually taken pay cuts in order to ensure equal pay.

Emma Stone Reveals Her Male Co-stars Have Taken Pay Cuts to Ensure Equal Pay

鈥淚n my career so far, I鈥檝e needed my male costars to take a pay cut so that I may have parity with them,鈥 the 28-year-old told Out magazine, revealing that in the quest for equal pay, it鈥檚 often her fellow actors stepping up (as opposed to the production companies in charge). 鈥淎nd that鈥檚 something they do for me because they feel it鈥檚 what鈥檚 right and fair.鈥

She continued by saying, 鈥淸G]etting equal pay is going to require people to selflessly say, 鈥楾hat鈥檚 what鈥檚 fair.鈥 If my male costar, who has a higher quote than me but believes we are equal, takes a pay cut so that I can match him, that changes my quote in the future and changes my life.鈥

While this might sound like a slight exaggeration, it鈥檚 not. At all. Stone is completely right when she points out that gaining equal pay gives her a platform to insist on proper pay in the future 鈥 not to mention the fact that it can help set a precedent for other women鈥檚 pay in the industry.

She ended by saying, 鈥淸T]his is Billie Jean鈥檚 feminism, and I love it 鈥 she is equality, man: equality, equality, equality.鈥 Billie Jean鈥檚 feminism + equal pay, FTW!

What do you think about the fact that Emma Stone鈥檚 male costars have had to take pay cuts to ensure she gets paid fairly? Let us know @BritandCo!
