Kate Winslet isn’t up for discussing matters of equal pay for male and female actors, it seems.
The ‘Titanic’ star went as far as to describe the recent talk as 'vulgar’.
A host of actresses from Jennifer Lawrence to Meryl Streep have discussed pay inequality in Hollywood in recent months.
Lawrence went so far as to write a stinging essay about it for Lena Dunham’s online newsletter.
Speaking to Radio 1’s Newsbeat, Winslet was clearly uncomfortable with the discussion.
“I’m having such a problem with these conversations,” she said
“I understand why they are coming up but maybe it’s a British thing. I don’t like talking about money; it’s a bit vulgar isn’t it?“
“I don’t think that’s a very nice conversation to have publicly at all.
“I’m quite surprised by these conversations to be honest, simply because it seems quite a strange thing to be discussing out in the open like that.
“I am a very lucky woman and I’m quite happy with how things are ticking along.”
She added that it would be 'dangerous’ to discuss comments made by other actresses, and went on to say that she’d never experienced any overt sexism in the industry personally.
“Honestly, no. And if I’d ever been in that situation I would have either dealt with it or removed myself from it,” she said.
“I find all this quite uncomfortable. I haven’t ever felt that I’ve really had to stick up for myself just because I’m a woman.”
Winslet is currently starring in Danny Boyle’s biopic of Steve Jobs, playing Joanna Hoffman, one of the key players in Jobs’ Mac team.
