Its very depressing to see that Emma Stone, Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway are worth less than one Adam Sandler.
By splitting the annual pay lists between men and women, we’re missing a chance to highlight a pay disparity that means Hollywood can hire Emma Stone, Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway for less than the price of one Adam Sandler
