Helen Mirren Says Hollywood Should Be Exempt From Equal Pay For Women

Asked about equal pay for women during an appearance with David Letterman, Helen Mirren surprisingly says that Hollywood should be exempt.

"Equal pay in the movie industry is a bit of a difficult thing, isn't it?," replied Mirren. "Because it's so tied into your box office draw and all of that."

"That's when you get the big bucks, when your movies make $200 million, $300 million or whatever it is. Massive amounts of money. So equal pay in the movies is a bit loaded anyway."

"Equal pay in any other industry? I mean absolutely," she said. "It's still something that people are fighting for."

Asked if she's had that problem, Mirren said: "I don't know because you never know what anyone else is being paid. You have no idea if you're being paid a quarter of everyone else or what the deal is."
