Jennifer Lawrence finds it ''easier'' to get paid fairly these days.

The 'mother!' actress penned an essay in 2015 called 'Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars?' addressing the revelation in the Sony email hack that she and Amy Adams were paid less than their male 'American Hustle' co-stars and she's pleased she spoke out about the issue.

But Jennifer insists she didn't only raise the subject on behalf of actresses, but also for women working in other industries who are subject to the same apparent discrimination.

Speaking during The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, she said: It's much easier for me now to be paid fairly.

''The reason I spoke out about it was really -- we're in the industry, everybody is looking at us, if we're going through this, every woman in the world is going through this.''

And the 27-year-old actress still thinks there is a problem in that it has been deemed ''normal'' for so long that women are paid less than men.

She said: ''But the real problem is the normalisation of it. It's the reason why your agents don't think twice about paying you a third of your [co-star's paycheque] because it's been so normalized for so long.''

Jennifer's fellow panelist, Jessica Chastain, revealed she has also taken a stand after growing infuriated that even when offered lead roles, she wouldn't be given a pay deal until her male co-stars were cast and bosses could examine their budgets.

She said: ''After 'Zero Dark Thirty', I was sent a lot of scripts where it was a female protagonist, and they wouldn't do my deal until they knew who the male actor was because they needed to do his deal first and then see what was left over.

''And I decided I'm not doing that anymore. So from now on, if someone has something they're bringing to me, great, let's do my deal [now].

''But also, if someone is showing up for three weeks of a two-month film, they're not getting paid more than me.''
