Benedict getting praise for his “my woman co-star must be paid as much as me” is just his way of making sure he stays with top talent like Jodie Foster. Feminist, huh?

Probably, he got “woke” cred but he should have been more specific. I can think of more than one female A-Lister that commands much higher pay than most of her male counterparts. Being fair means paying any actor regardless of their gender the same rate as long as they put in the same amount of work, have the same amount of experience and marketability in the form of Box Office draw. It’s nonsensical to insist that actresses get paid top dollar simply for being female without taking all of the aforementioned factors into account. I don’t identify with Third-wave feminism BTW, I consider myself more of an egalitarian.
