Amy Adams won't complain about own pay

Amy Adams worries she'd look "ungrateful" if she complained about her pay.

The 43-year-old actress' salary came under scrutiny when Sony was hacked in 2014 and leaked emails showed she and Jennifer Lawrence were paid less than their male co-stars, Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale on their movie 'American Hustle'.

Though Jennifer penned an essay addressing the Hollywood wage gap afterwards, Amy has stayed largely silent on the subject but she's now admitted she'd rather focus on people in much less well-paid industries getting paid what they're worth.

"I do believe in equal pay, but let's start with our teachers. Let's get waiters paid the minimum wage. That's what's great about what's happening with Time's Up - we're starting to have bigger conversations than just about what's happening in Hollywood."
