‘I have never concerned myself with monetary matters. I almost feel like I can’t comment on other people’s comments, but I admire people who publicly stand up for themselves,’ Winslet told Deadline.

“I’ve never been in the situation where I feel the need to make those types of comments. I’m fortunate. I have a nice life and career and I’m blessed to be 40 years old and still doing it.” But the actress also warned Jennifer Lawrence that she’d probably still be getting asking about the issue in decades to come.

“However, it reminds me of the comments that I made on women and body image,” Winslet added. “At 40, I’m still getting asked questions about those statements that I made years ago. At 45, Jennifer Lawrence will still be asked about the pay issue.”

Last month Winslet was criticised after telling BBC Newsbeat: “I understand why (pay gap conversations) are coming up but maybe it's a British thing. I don't like talking about money; it's a bit vulgar isn't it?”
