The film follows two astronomers (Lawrence and DiCaprio) as they try to warn the world about an Earth-ending meteorite that is heading straight for our planet.
While the Oscar-winning stars were both leading characters in the movie, it’s been revealed that there was a huge gap in their pay – which is something Lawrence remains frustrated about.

In a report published by Variety, it’s claimed that DiCaprio bagged himself $30 million for Don’t Look Up, while Lawrence got paid $25 million – which is still staggering.
Although Lawrence wasn’t the highest-paid star in the movie, The Hunger Games actress was reportedly top-billing for the film, which is apparently something that changed during production.
During an interview with Vanity Fair, the Red Sparrow star was asked about this, and she responded: “Look, Leo brings in more box office than I do.
“I’m extremely fortunate and happy with my deal.”
She continues: “But in other situations, what I have seen – and I’m sure other women in the workforce have seen as well – is that it’s extremely uncomfortable to inquire about equal pay.
“And if you do question something that appears unequal, you’re told it’s not gender disparity but they can’t tell you what exactly it is.”
Following this interview, Lawrence does a feature with Vogue magazine, and she adds: “It doesn’t matter how much I do.
“I’m still not going to get paid as much as that guy, because of my v**ina?”
This is not the first time the X-Men actress has hit out about the gender pay gap in Hollywood.
When the Sony email leak scandal happened, it was revealed that Lawrence and Amy Adams made considerably less than their male American Hustle co-stars, Bradley Cooper and Christian Bale.
This prompted the Silver Linings actress to write about it in Lena Dunham’s newsletter Lenny.
In the piece, which is titled ‘Why Do I Make Less Than My Male Co-Stars’, she writes: “When the Sony hack happened and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with d***s, I didn’t get mad at Sony.
“I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early.”
