Mind the (pay) Gap
Although Anderson eventually received salary parity with Duchovny, she told The Hollywood Reporter she was once again offered “half” of what her male co-star was being courted with when she was first approached about Fox’s “X-Files” revival. (Sources told THR that the two actors ended up being paid the same amount for the event series.)
She added, “Even in interviews in the last few years, people have said to me, ‘I can’t believe that happened, how did you feel about it, that is insane.’ And my response always was, ‘That was then, this is now.’ And then it happened again! I don’t even know what to say about it.”
Mind boggling that this still goes on.
