AceShowbiz - %cSienna Miller% reveals her experience with sexism in showbiz industry. Gracing the front page of Marie Claire magazine's latest issue, the "American Sniper" actress opens up on her cover story that she pulled out of a play once because of pay inequality.

"The producer wouldn't pay equally," she explained. "He wouldn't pay me within a million miles of what the male actor was being paid. And women always have to do more publicity than the men. The only way is to make a stand. We are going to have to make sacrifices to make change. I want to turn up and feel dignified."
