Academy award winning actor Jennifer Lawrence is hardly fighting to keep the wolf from the door. Hunger Games star Lawrence has become an outspoken advocate for women’s rights, and of course that is to be applauded. Playing Katniss Everdeen in Hunger Games made Lawrence one of the highest profile and best paid actors in Hollywood. The Richest estimates that 25-year-old Jennifer has a net worth of around $75 million, so many will feel that Lawrence’s position of wealth and privilege is hardly a position to complain about not being paid enough.
Lawrence used an essay in the Lenny to complain about inequality of pay in Hollywood. Seriously? Lawrence is undoubtedly talented and that talent has allowed her to enter the realm of the super-rich. Lawrence, even if she never works again, is set for life. She has earned more in her short career than most people will earn in a hundred life-times, and yet she still feels it is appropriate to look around with envious eyes at the earning of others who are members of the same elitist and exclusive club.
