Scarlett Johansson said: "I've had to fight for everything that I have. It's such a fickle and political industry"
"We should all be treated fairly and paid fairly. I've been lucky enough to have equal pay to my male co-stars. Not 'lucky'. I've had pay equal to my male co-stars in the past few films," Emma Stone said
"Bollywood is as patriarchal as our society. I once met a producer who asked me about my age and I said, 30. To this, he replied, 'Don't worry, you still have five years left.' Another producer showed me the exact spot on my face where I needed to get a botox"
"No, I haven't signed anything and it's stressing me out that I haven't," said Sonam. When asked about pay disparity, she said: "It is slowly changing, but it's a far way off despite the numbers that Neerja has done and despite the numbers my films have done"
"Women are quite vocal about their rights nowadays. And I want the change not only in film industry. Be it sports or business or in any other profession, women should be paid an equal amount. I believe that this gap will be fulfilled soon," Sonakshi Sinha said
"I've had my ar#$ slapped as I've left a room. I've felt scared walking home. I've had people following me. I don't talk about these experiences much, because coming from me they'll sound like a huge deal and I don't want this to be about me, but most women I know have experienced it and worse," said Emma Watson
When asked if it is high time, the pay gap should be reduced, Juhi Chawla said, "Even if I feel that way, I don't see it going away easily. It won't go overnight. The only difference is that today's actors earn more than what we used to get and similarly the future actors will get even more"
"Our film industry is in a wonderful phase, where we are at right now. As actors, we have a world in front of us. Male, female, hero, heroine and what we used to call character actors, everybody has the chance to have a film that centers around them with nobody taking away anything from anyone. Right now, it's a nice place to be an actor"
"I read recently somewhere that there are many female actors, who said they would want to work on a wage system that works even for men and I completely support them. If I want to cast them and they say that to me, then that's what I'll give them. But I can only speak about myself in relation to casting for a film"
"After Basic Instinct, no one wanted to pay me. I remember sitting in my kitchen with my manager and just crying and saying 'I'm not going to work until I get paid'. I still got paid so much less than any man," said Shraon Stone. She added that change "has to start with regular pay, not just for movie stars"
"My father is the best person I know because he encourages my sister and me. He treats me as a strong capable individual and for that he is a feminist. He believes that these girls are more than capable of doing a lot of things which a lot of people are not," said Sonam
"I don't really talk about the minutia of what goes on in my movies, but I believe the spirit of what Jennifer is saying is truthful to her heart. I support her and all women in that. I understand what she's saying, and I think people in the business do too. It's hard to make a movie come together with a lot of big stars"
