Hermione Granger Tweeted Out Her Support For Katniss Everdeen's Essay

Katniss took on sexism in Hollywood.

Jennifer Lawrence's salary was one of the most interesting things to come out of the Sony email hack. It was discovered that Lawrence, one of Hollywood's biggest, most bankable stars, received far less compensation than her male co-stars when she took a role in "American Hustle." 

Recently, Lawrence wrote an essay for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter newsletter, talking about how she felt when she discovered the hack and how she's rethought negotiating her salary for roles.

"When the Sony hack happened, and I found out how much less I was being paid than the lucky people with dicks, I didn't get mad at Sony," said Lawrence. "I got mad at myself. I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early."

"I'm over trying to find the 'adorable' way to state my opinion and still be likable!" wrote the actress. "Fuck that."

Lawrence's letter resonated with many, including actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador for Women Emma Watson. Watson made sure to retweet Lawrence's letter to her followers, then voiced her support: 

Hermione and Katniss teaming up to defeat sexism together? Hollywood (and the rest of the world) won't know what hit 'em.
