Fair and equal pay: Felicity Jones addresses what 'every single woman wants'

ANI  |  Washington D.C. [USA] 

'Rogue One

"That's what every single woman around the world wants. We want to be paid on parity with a man in a similar position," the 33-year-old British actress told Glamour magazine in an interview for January 2017 issue, which her on the cover and in a fashion spread, reports E! Online.

".And I think it's important to talk about it," the 'Inferno' actress addressed.

Jones, who starred in 'The Theory of Everything' and plays young rebel Jyn Erso in the new 'Star Wars' film, is the latest actress to speak openly about the problem, following the likes of and Patricia Arquette

In her acceptance speech for 'Best Supporting Actress' at the 2015 Oscars, Arquette had called for equal rights for women. Her words earned her a standing ovation, including from Meryl Streep.

Lawrence, who Forbes deemed the highest-paid actress in the world for the second year in a row with 46 million dollars in annual earnings, confirmed in a 2015 op-ed that she was paid less than her male co-stars for 'American Hustle'.

"It's brave of those women to come forward and make a point about it," Jones told Glamour.

"Now younger actresses will have a confidence in those discussions with their agents and be able to say, 'Can we make sure that I'm being paid the right amount for the work that I'm doing?'"

Jones also talked to the magazine about her 'Rogue One' character saying, "Everyone wanted to create a character that was not in any way objectified."

"We didn't want to sexualize Jyn...We don't even see Jyn's arms! That's not her priority. She's a survivor, and she has a mission to complete," Jones added.
