“With being number one on the call sheet?” Lawrence informed Variety, “Yeah. And I felt it was important that [the credits] reflect that. Leo was kind in his response. I believe we had something called Laverne & Shirley, which is a billing system they devised in which equal billing is given to both men and women. But I believe somewhere along the way, I kicked the stone a little harder, as if to say, ‘What if it wasn’t equal?'”

Lawrence is unconcerned about this. “Yeah, I noticed it too,” she mentioned, including “Look, Leo makes more money at the box office than I do. My arrangement has been really lucky for me, and I’m very pleased with it. In other cases, though, I’ve noticed—and I’m sure other women in the workforce have noticed as well—that asking about equal pay is exceedingly unpleasant. If you raise an issue that appears to be unfair, you’ll be told it’s not a gender issue, but they can’t tell you what it is.”
