World News – United States – Chadwick Boseman cut salary to raise Sienna Miller’s salary to 21 Bridges


Whether it’s giving a portion of their own higher salary to a costar, or refusing to work on projects with significant pay equity gaps, artists sometimes intervene and try to close the pernicious Hollywood wage gap, one gig at a time In a new interview for the October issue of Empire celebrating the late Chadwick Boseman, Sienna Miller recalls how the Black Panther star gave her part of his 21 Bridges salary to make up for the difference in salary for the film « I didn’t know if I should tell this story or not, and I haven’t got it yet But I’m going to say it because I think it’s a testament to who he was, » Miller says. « He was a big budget movie, and I know everyone understands the pay gap in Hollywood, but I asked for a number the studio would not come up with « 

Explains the actress: « And because I was reluctant to go back to work and my daughter was starting school and it was a time that was not suitable for me, I said, ‘I will if I’m paid the right way’And Chadwick ended up giving part of his paycheck to get me back to the number I requested He said that’s what I deserve to be paid « 

Boseman, himself the producer of the 2019 crime action drama, had personally researched Miller for the role, in addition to ultimately « donating » the difference between what the actress asked for and what the studio was ready to pay

“This was the most amazing thing I have experienced,” Miller recalls. “This sort of thing just doesn’t happen He said,“ You get paid what you deserve and what It’s just unfathomable to imagine that another man in this town behaving with such grace or respect As a result of this I told this story to other male actor friends and they all go very very quiet and go home and probably have to sit and think about things for a while But there was no show It was, « Sure, I’m going to take you to this number because it’s what you should get paid  »
