The March 2015 Hollywood issue of Vanity Fair dials for page views with this outtake image of actor Jennifer Lawrence, lensed in the company of a boa constrictor by Patrick Demarchelier. The image was part of the Hunger Games star’s prior November 2014 editorial and interview with Vanity Fair, published shortly after last year’s massive photo hack scandal.
Jennifer’s photo shoot with the red-tailed boa constrictor payed homage to acclaimed photographer Richard Avedon’s portrait of Nastassja Kinski.
Lawrence showed up in a second major hacking scandal, the SONY hack that lead to yesterday’s announcement that Sony co-chair Amy Pascal will be stepping down. Pascal will remain with the studio as an independent producer.
Numerous unflattering emails from Pascal refer to Angelina Jolie, including her suggestion to Brian Helgeland, screenwriter of the planned ‘Cleopatra’ biopic that he dump Jolie for Lawrence.
Probably the most troubling Sony email revelation concerns the fact that Jennifer Lawrence was compensated less than her male co-stars on ‘American Hustle’. Read on at The Daily Beast.
‘American Hustle’ male actors Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner, and the director David O. Russell all got 9 percent of back-end profits, while Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence, the movie’s two female leads, were each getting 7 percent. (Lawrence was originally going to get 5 percent but her pay had been raised, as revealed in the emails.)
Responding to the same Sony email leak, actor Charlize Theron insisted that she be pait the same as her male co-star Chris Hemsworth for ‘The Huntsman’. Her demand netted her a $10 million increase in salary compensation, to create parity between Theron and Hemsworth.
