Ashton Kutcher’s reaction after Natalie Portman revealed he made three times her salary for No Strings Attached
Ashton Kutcher said that he is proud of Natalie Portman for calling out Hollywood’s pay gap, after the actress revealed he made triple her salary when they costarred in the 2011 romantic comedy No Strings Attached.
Kutcher chose his Twitter account to applaud his colleague for the courage to tell the truth about gender pay gap at Hollywood.
Oscar-winning actress Natalie Portman slammed the gender pay gap as “crazy” – and said it was even worse in Hollywood than in other jobs.
“So proud of Natalie and all women who stand up for closing the gender pay gap!” Kutcher tweeted on Wednesday.

“Compared to men, in most professions, women make 80 cents to the dollar,” Portman told Marie Claire. “In Hollywood we are making 30 cents to the dollar.”
