Noomi Rapace criticises 'disturbing' gender pay gap in Hollywood.

Noomi Rapace has called the gender pay gap in Hollywood "disturbing".

The 37-year-old star says she wants equality between the sexes on movie sets.

She's calling on film bosses to stop paying women less than men for doing the same job.

"We should be paid equally and its disturbing in my industry. Why would a man be more paid than me? Why?" she asked.
"There's no explanation, but I think it's changing."

La La Land star Emma Stone also recently criticised the pay gap and revealed the only way she received equal pay was by male co-stars taking voluntary cuts.

In June, Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke said sexism in Hollywood and the entertainment industry was "like dealing with racism".

The actress said that she's now used to being treated differently because she's a woman on TV shows and in films.
