Jameela Jamil won't stop speaking out against inequality in Hollywood in fear of losing work.

The 'Good Place' actress - who reprises her role as Tahani Al-Jamil in the Netflix show which returns for a third series on September 27 - has been vocal about the gender pay gap and various issues that affect women in showbusiness, and says she's shocked when people suggest she is doing so simply to get more work.

Jameela believes being an advocate has actually ''cost'' her money, which is why she chooses to work with brands that empower females.

The 32-year-old star also says she would feel like a hypocrite if she worked for people who pay women less.

She told the latest issue of Grazia magazine: ''The funniest thing is when people are like, 'You're just saying all this stuff to further your career.'

''Are you in insane? I'm biting all the hands that could possibly feed me. But I won't go away.

''I'm sure that this has cost me. I would earn much more if I didn't keep slagging off industries that pay a lot of money.

''But I can't live with hypocrisy.

''I want to work with brands that are on women's sides.''

As an example, Jameela says she'd be happy to be photographed for a beauty campaign where the product being advertised is shown without being the model being Photoshopped.

She added: ''A make-up brand that shoots me without airbrushing to show off how good their make-up actually is. Let's sell something real to people.''

Jameela left her job as a successful Channel 4 TV presenter in the hopes of making it big as an actress in Los Angeles, but admitted previously people from the UK tried to discourage her from pursuing her dream before she landed a role in the US comedy alongside Kristen Bell, and Ted Danson.

She said: ''I was literally starting again and I was actively discouraged by everyone in England. Everyone said I was being mad, throwing away an eight-year career, and that I was too old - I was only 29 - too ethnic, and too fat to come over to Los Angeles.''
