After Jennifer Lawrence made less than her male costars in American Hustle, she's fighting for a much bigger paycheck for her next movie Passengers. J. Law is set to star alongside Chris Pratt, and she's actually making more than him this time!

While Chris is taking home a reported $10 million from Sony, the Oscar winning starlet is commanding an impressive $20 million, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Perhaps Sony's former studio head Amy Pascal inspired J. Law to push for more money. "The truth is that what women have to do is not work for less money," she said. "They have to walk away. People shouldn't be so grateful for jobs."

And reportedly, Jen was indeed ready to walk if she didn't get her promised pay. The 24-year-old actress is currently making $15 million for her lead role in Joy, so this is a quite a jump for her salary-wise. We think it's great that she knows her worth and is demanding to be paid accordingly for her work and time. You go, girl!
