the King

Hollywood is notorious for it's lack of consideration for the importance of equal pay. Actresses have continuously lost out on wages to male co-stars who are contributing the exact same or less to the project than them.

Robert Pattinson has now weighed in on the gender pay gap in Hollywood, claiming that he'd work without pay if it meant securing great actresses. Um, we heart?

The actor signed a #MeToo 'behavioural contract' before signing onto a Netflix original project out later this year. The King also stars Lily Rose-Depp and Timothée Chalamet.

Most famously, Michelle Williams was paid EIGHT TIMES less than Mark Wahlberg for All the Money in the World, and earned just $1,000 for the reshoots. Bear in mind that Mark isn't exactly Oscars material, yet he was given $1.5 million.

The highest-paid actress of last year, Scarlett Johansson, made $198.5 million less than the highest-paid actor, George Clooney.

High-profile Times Up activist Jessica Chastain was given roughly $1.75 million for The Martian, while Matt Damon allegedly earned as much as $25 million. Wow.

Pattinson, who found fame after starring in Twilight, told The Sunday Times;

“If it’s a question of me being paid more and getting a worse actress, or me being paid less and getting a better actress, I’ll do it for fucking free." We stan a Times Up supporter.

He also divulged why he never speaks openly about his romantic life, saying;

"If you let people in, it devalues what love is," he says. The actor is currently dating Suki Waterhouse.

"If a stranger on the street asked you about your relationship, you’d think it extremely rude. If you put up a wall it ends up better."

We're guessing he keeps his cards close to his chest, love-wise, since the whole Kristen Stewart cheating scandal. He sounds like a sound feminist lad, one you'd bring home to your granny for sure,

It’s hard to imagine what a movie about the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll made by one of Hollywood’s zaniest directors would look like!

Well, it might not be long before we find out, as Baz Luhrmann is in talks to direct an Elvis Presley biopic.

The Romeo and Juliet movie-maker has been in negotiations with Warner Bros about depicting the life of the iconic singer on the silver screen.

The studio has also secured full rights to the Love Me Tender singers’ entire back catalogue for the movie. And that’s not all – Fifty Shades of Grey writer Kelly Marcel is working on an original screenplay for the film.

It’s yet to be revealed what period of Elvis’ life the movie will depict before his death in 1977 aged 42.

Baz has a number of projects in the pipeline, including the highly-anticipated Kung Fu movie, but the director hasn’t revealed what he’ll start work on first.
