She may be the face of the HBO hit show Westworld but Evan Rachel Wood has revealed that she has not paid as much as her male co-stars.
The actress, 30, said that despite her years in successful shows and movies, she still did not play the same role as co-stars Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris – and has never received the same pay in her career.
This changes now after she has agreed to a third season of the hit.
"I think I'm just now at the point where I'm paid the same as my male co-stars," Wood said in an interview with The Wrap 's Sharon Waxman on Monday
Wood received a raise for Season 3 of the HBO hit series, which means that she now receives as much as Hopkins and Harris.
"I have just been told that you are" Hey, you are, you will be paid right away, "Wood said." And I was like [gasp]. And I became almost emotional. I figured: & # 39; I never got paid like my male colleagues … Never, never. & # 39; "
" I did not move. And I'm not saying that I'm in dire straits. I'm very happy … It's more about being fairly or equally paid, or being paid less just because you're a woman is not fair, "added Wood.
" There it is a lot of politics, but there are a lot of things that are being talked about now, "she continued." There is a lot going on behind the scenes. There are many attempts to make things the same and to make things fair. But this is the first time someone has pointed out to be like, "Hey, you get that. And you deserve it." And that was nice. "
The actress who also appeared in Die Iden of March and Trueblood has spoken out about women's rights and her own experiences with sexual abuse
In February, Wood courageously testified before a subcommittee of the House Judiciary in Washington, DC, to campaign for the bills on sexual assault
During the hearing, the actress said that the two rapes "happened a decade ago" and described the abuse she suffered from one of her former friends  RELATED: Evan Rachel Wood Details Her Experience of Rape and Torture in Harrowing Testimony for Congress
"It started slowly, but escalated over time, including threats to my life, heavy gas lighting and brainwashing, awake up to the man who claimed to love me, raped, what he thought was my unconscious body, "Wood said during the panel. "And the worst part: Sick rituals to tie myself to my hands and feet, to be mentally and physically tortured until my offender felt that I had shown my love for them."
"I was self-injuring up to two suicide attempts, which took me to a mental hospital for a short time, but this was a turning point in my life when I started seeking professional help with my trauma and mental stress to deal with, "Wood said. "But others are not so happy, and that's why rape is often more than a few minutes of trauma, but slower death."
