Emma Thompson says she was always paid less than her male colleagues. The 59-year-old actor-writer said women are still treated as “second-class citizens”. She also advocated to publish salaries to reveal the gender pay gap.

“I was always paid less than my male counterparts. Publishing figures is the first step. “Its a forensic way of looking at how women are second-class citizens, and I appreciate that because its not emotional. This is the fact: this person does the same work for less money, and thats just wrong,” Thompson told Good Housekeeping magazine.

The Oscar-winning star urged women to be financially independent. “Earn your own living and keep your own money. Its your cash and you should always decide what to do with it,” she said.

Emma Thompson has been a part of several super hit films like Sense And Sensibility, Love, Actually, Howards End and the Harry Potter series. The actor has won two Oscars, two Baftas and two Golden Globes for her stellar performances in her more than three-decade-long career in Hollywood.
