'Burnt' actress Sienna Miller has claimed there is "no equality whatsoever" in Hollywood

Sienna Miller believes there is "no equality whatsoever" in Hollywood.

The 'Burnt' actress doesn't understand why things are so "imbalanced" in favour of men, but feels lucky that she has been able to do "interesting" work.

She said: "I think there's still no equality whatsoever.

"In terms of roles and quality of roles and pay cheques, the world is so imbalanced. And it doesn't make any sense.

"At the moment, I'm fortunate enough to work with directors who love women, and I get to play some really interesting roles, even if they are small."

The 33-year-old star isn't the only actress to speak up on the issue lately.

Emma Watson recently said she thinks sexism is rampant in Hollywood and claims she has been "treated so incredibly differently" from many of her male co-stars.

She told LOOK magazine: "I have experienced sexism in that I have been directed by male directors 17 times and only twice by women. Of the producers I've worked with 13 have been male and only one has been a woman. But I am lucky: I have always insisted on being treated equally and have generally won that equality. Most of the problems I have encountered have been in the media, where I have been treated so incredibly differently from my male co-stars."

And Jennifer Lawrence recently penned an essay in which she admitted that while she was shocked to learn that she and her 'American Hustle' co-star Amy Adams were paid considerably less for their roles in the movie than Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper, and Jeremy Renner, she blamed herself because she "failed as a negotiator".
