Jennifer Lawrence’s Don’t Look Up Pay Gap: Why DiCaprio Is Getting Paid More

Lawrence is “extremely lucky and happy” with his “Don’t Look Up” deal, despite being second only to co-star Leonardo DiCaprio.

As audiences watch Adam McKay’s upcoming Netflix comedy “Don’t Look Up,” they may notice Jennifer Lawrencehis name appeared on the screen half a second ago Leonardo DiCaprioin open credits. That’s because the Oscar-winning “Silver Linings Playbook” received the highest bill for the movie. As Lawrence confirmed Vanity Fair for a new cover story, “I’m Number One on the Calling Board.” The original plan was for the two A-listers to share the top pay, but Lawrence came up with the idea of ​​getting the highest payout at some point in the production.

“[Am I ok] with the number one spot on the call board? Yes,” said Lawrence. “And I thought [the credits] should reflect that. Leo was very pleased with that. I think we had something called Laverne & Shirley, that’s the way of invoicing that they invented to create an equal bill. But I guess maybe somewhere down the line, I kicked an extra stone, like, ‘What if it doesn’t equal?’ “

Lawrence may be the highest paid, but she is not the highest paid. An annual report by Variety magazine on actor salaries in Hollywood published in August revealed DiCaprio made $30 million for “Don’t Look Up” and Lawrence earned $25 million. As Vanity Fair noted, Lawrence made 83 cents for a DiCaprio dollar.

“Yeah, me too,” Lawrence said of the headlines regarding the pay gap between the two Oscar winners. “Look, Leo brought in more box office than me. I am extremely lucky and happy with my trading. But in other situations, what I’ve seen – and I’m sure other women in the workforce have seen too – is that asking for equal pay is incredibly frustrating. And if you question something that seems unequal, you’re told it’s not a gender gap but they can’t tell you exactly what it is.”

McKay wrote “Don’t Look Up” for Jennifer Lawrence, and the actress read the script first. Lawrence stars as Kate Dibiasky, an astronomy graduate student who discovers a comet heading towards Earth. Kate and her professor, Dr. Randall Mindy (DiCaprio), embark on a tour across America to warn the country of impending doom.

“No one has a more beautiful tantrum than Jen,” ​​says McKay Vanity Fair. “When she liberated, it was an incredible sight. Think of her in ‘Silver Linings Playbook’, she’s in everything. I want to cut my ties with one strong, funny truth-teller and that’s Jen Lawrence. I mean, that personality pours out of me. I’ll just picture Jen and you know exactly what she’s going to say… She’ll be the one who doesn’t play games. And, of course, she’s going to get slashed for that, which is going to be heartbreaking, but she’s never going to play this game. “

“Don’t Look Up” hits theaters exclusively on December 10. The film’s broadcast date is set for December 24 on Netflix.
