Miller told Empire that Bosman, who co-starred in the 2019 film “21 Bridges” and was a fan of his work, wanted him to be in the film. “So he approached me to do it, he offered me this film, and it was at that point when I really didn’t want to work anymore,” she said. “I was working non-stop and I was tired, but then I wanted to work with him.”
Bosman pushed her to receive a higher salary. He said he donated part of his own salary to increase Miller’s salary.
“I didn’t know whether to tell this story or not, and I haven’t yet,” Miller said in the interview. “But I’m going to tell it, because I think it’s a testament to who he was.”
Miller said he asked for a salary that the studio would not pay him. She noted the pay disparity between men and women in Hollywood and said she was hesitant to return to acting because her daughter was just starting school.
She said that she would only do the film “if I am compensated properly”.
“And Chadwick donated some of his salary to get me to the number I asked for.” “They said that I was the one who was eligible to pay.”
Miller, 38, said Bosman’s generosity is about “the most amazing thing”. “This kind of thing just doesn’t happen. They said, ‘You’re being paid what you want, and what you’re worth.’ It is just indomitable to imagine another man from the city who is treating him or her respectfully, ”she continued. “After this I have told the other male actors of that story to friends and they all go very, very quiet and go home and maybe sit for some time and think about things.”
Miller stated that “there was no showmanship” when Boseman selflessly paid something of his own. He did this because he thought “you should be paid the same,” she said.
