Kate Winslet doesn’t want in on the discussion on gender wage inequality. She won’t be penning any opinion pieces like Jennifer Lawrence, and she doesn’t want to take part in the conversation. In fact, she says she finds it “a bit vulgar.”
“I’m having such a problem with these conversations,” she said. “Because they keep coming up, and I understand why they are coming up, but maybe it’s a British thing. I don’t like talking about money…it’s a bit vulgar isn’t it?”

While Bradley Cooper and Josh Hutcherson lauded Jennifer Lawrence for her recent public stance, Kate Winslet disapproves about talking about money in public.
“I don’t think that’s a very nice conversation to have publicly at all,” she said. “I’m quite surprised by these conversations to be honest, simply because it seems quite a strange thing to be discussing out in the open like that.”

Kate Winslet actually believes she has never faced inequality within the entertainment industry because of her gender.
“Honestly, no,” she said when asked. “And if I’d ever been in that situation I would have either dealt with it or removed myself from it…I haven’t ever felt that I’ve really had to stick up for myself just because I’m a woman.”
Do you think Kate Winslet is in denial? Or is she truly of the mindset that such discussions aren’t appropriate in a public setting?

Jennifer Lawrence should be hailed a hero for her outspokenness on the topic in Hollywood.
Why wouldn’t Kate Winslet want to jump on that bandwagon?
