The 47-year-old "Boyhood" star, who won the best supporting actress Oscar last year, used her acceptance speech to give an heartfelt plea for wage equality, which she said cost her a number of roles, reported ET online.
"Really, before I said it, I knew there was gonna be some drama, 'cause it would cost people money. But there are 33 million women and kids that are living in poverty in America, with a full-time working mom. So, we need to address this and we need to address this right away," she said.
"It's OK. I do believe in karma," she added. The actress said the attention the cause has received is "exciting".
