Benedict Cumberbatch Wants Actors to Boycott Roles If Actresses Aren’t Paid Equally

 

Benedict Cumberbatch is asking male actors to boycott projects should their female co-stars not be equally compensated.

“Equal pay and a place at the table are the central tenets of feminism,” Cumberbatch told the Radio Times. “Look at your quotas. Ask what women are being paid, and say: ‘If she’s not paid the same as the men, I’m not doing it.’”

Cumberbatch also said he would be using his production company, SunnyMarch, to champion for more female projects.

“I’m proud that (partner) Adam (Ackland) and I are the only men in our production company; our next project is a female story with a female lens about motherhood, in a time of environmental disaster,” he said. “If it’s centered around my name, to get investors, then we can use that attention for a raft of female projects. Half the audience is female!”

Looks like Marvel’s production budget is going to get much much higher if all the women are going to have to be paid the same as Robert Downey Jr.
