Otherwise it won’t happen
“It was a pretty big budget movie, and I know everyone has heard of the inequality of wages between men and women in Hollywood, but I asked about an amount the studio wouldn’t pay,” says Miller. The film was made at a time when she actually didn’t want to shoot. However, she would agree if she was rewarded accordingly, she had declared at the time. In the end, Boseman “donated” part of his own fee so that it could be better paid. The late actor said that this was the amount she earned.
“It was the most amazing thing I’ve ever experienced,” explains Miller. Something like this just doesn’t happen otherwise. For them it is inconceivable that another actor would have done something similar for them.
