05:02

Two-time Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain spoke with TODAY’s Hoda Kotb about how she spoke up on behalf of fellow actress Octavia Spencer to help her get five times her pay for an upcoming film they’re in together. “I assumed a woman like Octavia Spencer would be compensated fairly for the work she’s done, for the awards she’s received,” said Chastain, whose latest movie, “Woman Walks Ahead,” hits theaters this week.
