Michelle Rodriguez Compares Hollywood Gender Pay Gap to Slavery (Video)

“That’s the world we live in, it’s a patriarchal society,” actress says

Michelle Rodriguez is bringing a unique perspective to the debate over the pay gap between men and women in Hollywood.

Approached by TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport on Thursday, the “Fast & Furious” actress compared the situation to slavery.

And she’s OK with it.

“It’s like being born a slave. You know it’s like, ‘Oh damn. Darn my luck. I wish I was born somewhere else or maybe some other way,'” the actress offered. “But it is what it is.”

Rodriguez acknowledged, “I get paid a lot less than my colleagues.” However, she shrugged off the disparity.

“That’s the world we live in, it’s a patriarchal society,” Rodriguez said.
