US actor Patricia Arquette has spoken to the BBC in an interview about gender pay equality in Hollywood, for Hollywood A-listers and also technical staff such as sound editors. Arquette's interview follows on from Jennifer Lawrence's recent essay "Why do I make less than my male co-stars", in which she discusses her feelings after finding out that she was paid less than her American Hustle male co-stars, one of whom, Bradley Cooper, has said in recent days that there needs to be much more transparency over pay in the film industry to lead to further equality.

If you want to explore the issue of gender inequality in Hollywood, then this Forbes article gives more facts and figures. Interestingly, the gap is not as wide in TV as in film. But there are fewer big roles for women than men - equality is missing not only in terms of pay but also in terms of opportunity.
