Natalie Portman: I Should’ve Been More ‘Pissed’ Over Pay Gap With Ashton KutcherNatalie Portman and Ashton Kutcher split the screen in 2011’s “No Strings Attached,” but they didn’t split the film’s salary budget right down the middle.

Looking back at the pay disparity, which she was aware of at the time, Portman told Marie Claire: “I wasn’t as pissed as I should have been.”

“I mean, we get paid a lot, so it’s hard to complain, but the disparity is crazy,” she continued.

Portman only went along with the whole thing because of Hollywood’s reliance on “quotes,” which basically sets an actor’s market value based on their last payday.

“His was three times higher than mine so they said he should get three times more,” she explained.

Portman actually won an Academy Award in 2011 for 2010’s “Black Swan.”

“Compared to men, in most professions, women make 80 cents to the dollar,” she continued. “In Hollywood, we are making 30 cents to the dollar.”

“I don’t think women and men are more or less capable, we just have a clear issue with women not having opportunities,” she concluded. “We need to be part of the solution, not perpetuating the problem.”
