Here's a Jennifer Lawrence hack that deserves our attention.

In Sony emails leaked by a group of hackers called Guardians of Peace, it's revealed that Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams made less for their roles in American Hustle than their male costars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale.

J. Law and Amy made only 7% of back end profits, while all the male actors got 9%. She was originally only set to get a measly 5%, despite the fact that she's one the biggest stars in the film, having already starred in The Hunger Games and won an Oscar for Silver Linings Playbook.

The Sony email leaks also disclosed Jen's email address handle, which we already knew included the word "butt" thanks to Lorde. Her email is "peanutbutt", according to The Daily Beast.

Are you surprised to learn that J. Law isn't being paid as much as her male castmates?
