Kristen Stewart has offered her hot take on the Hollywood gender pay gap, and it varies somewhat from what her fellow actresses have been saying lately.

The former ‘Twilight’ actress has admitted she feels “bored” by the ongoing debate about women not being paid as much as their male counterparts for film roles, insisting that the females involved should “do something about it”.

She told Variety, during the Sundance film festival: “It sounds weird for me to sit around and be like, it's not fair! Guys make more money because their movies make more money. Let's start making more movies. It makes sense…. Instead of sitting around and complaining about that, do something.

“Go write something, go do something. And that's easy to say. Like, fuck, it's hard to get movies made. It's a huge luxury. Who gets to just make movies?”

Kristen added: “That subject is just so prevalently everywhere right now, and it's boring."

Other women in Hollywood have taken a different approach to Kristen, doing what they can to raise awareness of the gender gap issue.

Jennifer Lawrence, for example, penned a piece about it for Lena Dunham's email newsletter, which came out after leaked emails from Sony executives revealed she was earning less money than her male co-stars in ‘American Hustle’.

She wrote: “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. I got mad at myself.

"I failed as a negotiator because I gave up early… But if I’m honest with myself, I would be lying if I didn’t say there was an element of wanting to be liked that influenced my decision to close the deal without a real fight. I didn’t want to seem ‘difficult’ or ‘spoiled’.”

Similarly, Patricia Arquette addressed the issue during her Best Actress acceptance speech at last year's Oscars.
