Claire Foy reveals she was "deeply hurt" by The Crown pay gap revelation because it was a "big, fat, dirty secret"
“I was deeply hurt by it,” she tells Net-a-Porter magazine, “because I’d been working on that show for two years. I loved everybody on it. And then I realized, there’s been a big, fat, dirty secret that nobody’s ever talked about.” She adds: “But then there was also that thing (of being) an inadvertent spokesperson. Why did it have to be me? I could have said nothing. And I think everyone would have preferred that. But I thought, if I do that, I will be cheating myself and all the other women I know.”
