Chadwick Boseman Paid Part of Sienna Miller’s Salary On ’21 Bridges’

In conversation with Empire Magazine, the late Chadwick Boseman’s 21 Bridges co-star Sienna Miller shared a memory in testament to his character. See the quote below:

“I didn’t know whether or not to tell this story, and I haven’t yet. But I am going to tell it, because I think it’s a testament to who he was. This was a pretty big budget film, and I know that everybody understands about the pay disparity in Hollywood, but I asked for a number that the studio wouldn’t get to. And because I was hesitant to go back to work and my daughter was starting school and it was an inconvenient time, I said, ‘I’ll do it if I’m compensated in the right way.’ And Chadwick ended up donating some of his salary to get me to the number that I had asked for. He said that that was what I deserved to be paid.”
