It all started when ‪‪Jessica Chastain‬ approached her with an idea for the comedy film, that she is producing as well.

“She was like, ‘It’s time women get paid the same as men!’” Spencer recalled. “We were dropping f-bombs and getting it all out there. And then I said, ‘But here’s the thing, women of color, on that spectrum, we make far less than white women . . .’ She was quiet. She had no idea that that’s what it was like for women of color.”

Spencer chokes before saying the next words,

“She said, ‘Octavia, we’re gonna get you paid on this film.’ And you and I are going to be tied together. We’re going to be favored nations, and we’re going to make the same thing.”

The Molly’s Game actress was true to her words as Spencer tells us,

“Fast-forward to last week. We’re making five times what we asked for.”

Before the talk ended Spencer mentions,

However, she noted, “Now, I want to go to what the men are making!”
