Amy Adams: 'I knew I was being paid less' than male co-stars

LOS ANGELES - Amy Adams says she knew she was receiving less money than her male "American Hustle" co-stars.

The actress tells British GQ magazine that she agreed to play a con artist opposite Christian Bale, Bradley Cooper and Jeremy Renner despite being paid less than them.

Adams' co-star Jennifer Lawrence said last year that she blamed herself for failing as a negotiator when she learned from leaked Sony emails that her male co-stars were paid more.

Adams and Lawrence were nominated for the best actress and supporting actress Oscars, respectively, for their roles in the 2013 film.

Adams, who also starred in "Her" and "The Master," said in the magazine's April issue that "American Hustle" filmmaker David O. Russell made her cry most days of production.
