Los Angeles, March 24 (IANS) Oscar-winning actress Olivia Coleman has talked about the pay disparity in Hollywood and shared that she would make way more money if she were a man.

Coleman was a guest on CNN’s The Amanpour Hour.

The actress said: “Don’t get me started on the pay disparity, but male actors get paid more because they used to say they drew in the audiences.”

Coleman added: “And actually, that hasn’t been true for decades but they still like to use that as a reason to not pay women as much as their male counterparts.”

When asked if she had pay disparity despite her accolades in the industry.

“I’m very aware that if I was Oliver Colman, I’d be earning a lot more than I am,” she said.
