Jessica Alba has always been determined not to "answer to the man".
Gender equality is just one of the hot debates currently sweeping Hollywood, with stars including Jennifer Lawrence expressing their anger at being paid less than their male co-stars.
Jessica is firmly on Jennifer's side, and she thinks it's ridiculous that women aren't considered equal to the opposite sex.
“There are not as many women in government titles, business titles. It’s just not equal. And until there is equality, you’re going to feel that no matter what industry you’re in. But from day one, I was like, girls should have an equal seat at the table. Take Jennifer Lawrence. I mean, she’s opening movies—she’s the box office draw as much as any guy in the movie, if not more. She should be compensated for that,” she said in an interview this month.
