Jeremy Renner: It’s Not My Job to Help Actresses Get Paid


Jeremy Renner reveals that it’s not his job to help actresses get paid.

Jennifer Lawrence’s recent has rocked Hollywood to it’s core. Lawrence, who is currently filming Passengers in Atlanta with Chris Pratt, called out Hollywood for their history of sexism and unequal. Since she made those comments other actors including Rooney Mara, Jessica Chastain, and Bradley Cooper stood up to her defense.

But, one of Jennifer Lawrence’s co-stars, Jeremy Renner, had a different response. When asked whether he will be willing to negotiate his pay alongside his female costars in the future.

“That’s not my job,” Renner told Business Insider on Tuesday, adding, “I don’t know contracts and money and all that sort of stuff.”

Jeremy Renner went on to say that he supports actresses being compensated fairly. But, he is just focused on his acting and his performance as an actor. “I’m a performer and I know human behavior,” he said. “When it comes to that sort of stuff I let other people deal with that.”

While, Jeremy Renner was probably being as upfront and open about his experiences in Hollywood, on Twitter people called for Marvel to replace the actor on all future superhero movies.

It is important to point out that Jennifer Lawrence’s other co-star, Bradley Cooper, announced that he will work with his female costars to make sure they get paid fairly even if that means if he has to get a pay cut.

“I don’t know where it’s changing otherwise, but that’s something that I could do,” he said.

“Usually you don’t talk about the financial stuff, you have people,” Cooper added. “But you know what? It’s time to start doing that.”
