Bradley Cooper has spoken of the need for "transparency" to help close the gender pay gap in Hollywood.
Cooper's American Hustle co-star Jennifer Lawrence made headlines this month when she wrote about her anger at getting paid less than her male counterparts.
"Putting a microscope on it and having the impact that it's had is a great thing," Cooper said.
"Obviously transparency is necessary in order to help that equilibrium occur."
Cooper plays a head chef trying to regain his reputation in the capital after a downfall caused by drug addiction.
The film reunites him with his American Sniper co-star Sienna Miller, who plays a talented chef taken on by Cooper's character.
Asked about the pay gap issue, Miller said: "It's a conversation that's happening on a global scale in every industry - and it's time that there is transparency and equality. It's insane that there isn't."
