Jeremy Renner said it’s not his responsibility to help women in Hollywood figure out what their salaries should be.

During an interview with Business Insider, the reporter asked the “Avengers” actor if he would “be willing to negotiate alongside his female co-stars on future projects.”

“That’s not my job,” said Renner. “I don’t know contracts and money and all that sort of stuff.”

“I’m a performer and I know human behavior. When it comes to that sort of stuff I let other people deal with that. I do what I’m good at, that’s what I focus on.” (RELATED: Here’s Why Jennifer Lawrence Thinks She Makes Less Money)

However, some argued it could have been because she worked less than half the days on set that Bradley Cooper did. (RELATED: Is Bad Math To Blame For Jennifer Lawrence’s Hollywood Wage Gap?)
