“I was just told that, you know, ‘Hey you’re, you’re getting equal pay.’ And I was like [gasp]. And I almost got emotional,” Wood said in an interview with The Wrap. “I was like, ‘I have never been paid the same as my male counterparts … Never, never.’”

“I’m always fighting for [equal pay],” Wood added. “And I have turned down projects [because of it]Westworld, it’s like, I get it a little more,” she said laughing. “It’s like, ‘Well, you’re Anthony Hopkins or Ed Harris.’ But I think now we’re all doing equal amounts of work and really hard work.”
