Oscar nominee Jessica would now accept the film offer only after determining her worth for the film rather than the going with the old method of signing the deal and determining the pay later. In the meantime, she revealed that recently, she didn’t get a big film role just because she turned the offer down due to the inequality in pay.

The stunning actress, Jessica Chastain claims that she is advocating the rights of every female actors to get what they deserve.
