The Leading Ladies Speak Up


-The Hollywood Reporter’s actress roundtable features Glenn Close, Lady Gaga, Kathryn Hahn, Nicole Kidman, Regina King and Rachel Weisz. They talk about the times they wished they had spoken up more on set, and why it’s important to speak openly about pay and treatment. Said Kidman: “Working with younger actresses, I say, ‘Ask me anything and I’ll answer. Ask me anything financially. If you need advice, just ask. I can only tell you what I advise and you might take it or leave it. But it’s nice to have access to information.'”
