(CBS Las Vegas)– Jennifer Lawrence created quite a stir last week after writing an op-ed piece about wage equality in Lenny Letter.
This week Amy Schumer and Dakota Johnson opened up to E! News about the powerful words written by the actress, which discussed not only salary, but the roles that are offered to women.
“First of all she’s the best, and I’m so proud of her. I thought that was so badass. I of course support wage equality and all equality, but if we just raise the minimum wage… that would take care of everybody, Schumer told E!.
Actress Dakota Johnson of “Black Mass” also gave a statement regarding Lawrence’s essay.
“I thought it was great. She’s a bold woman, and I appreciate that. I think that it’s a good time for changes to be made in the way women are treated in Hollywood,” Johnson said.
And female actresses aren’t the only ones speaking out about the comments. Co-star Bradley Cooper chimed in on the issue as well.
“One thing I could say is that’s interesting because if you think that you only deserve a certain amount and that’s not correct, it’s about changing that mindset and sticking up for yourself,” Cooper said.
Lawrence wrote the op-ed piece in hopes that wage inequality issues don’t continue.
