Oh, no, fellas! Yet another one of those gals from the pictures is talking about equal pay and this time it's Cate Blanchett! Get on the horn and call up the big boss from MGM because someone's gotta shut this down tout suite!

Discussing people who are still unaware that equal pay is a problem, Blanchett told Vogue Australia, "People were surprised? There are countless industries around the world where women in top positions are not equally remunerated for equal work."


And there are women who are not in top positions who are paid even lower—not that us peasants who make under $100k/year tend to get mentioned or noticed by these hifalutin movie folk.

Blanchett also discussed the power of the female audience. Via E! Online:

"Tina Fey wrote in Bossypants that any woman in Hollywood who's no longer considered f—kable is ignored," interviewer Anna Funder began, "In the era of Judi Dench and Meryl Streep and other actresses we love, can this really be true, or are they exceptions?"

Blanchett simply stated, "Female audiences are driving the change, I think. Women don't stop consuming cultural product once they stop menstruating."

Jon Hamm knows his job is cushy as hell. "Whenever people want to talk about how hard it is to be an actor, I want to go, 'Um, it's hard to be a baby-heart surgeon,'" he told GQ. "Being an actor is actually pretty easy, if you can memorize lines."

He also talked about the end of Mad Men:

"The one constant thing I've had in my career is now removed. And that's an eye-opener: Are people still going to take me seriously? Am I just going to do romantic comedies for the rest of my life? What's next? And I don't know, you know? I wish I was smug enough to have had a grand plan."


Why not go into baby heart surgery? [POPSUGAR]
