Actor Chris Evans says gender pay gap is so ingrained in the film industry that sometimes it is difficult to even identify it.

The 34-year-old “Captain America: Civil War” star believes Hollywood has underlying issues, which creates disparity between the roles male and female actors get, reported Female First.

“You can’t stick your head in the ground like that. Being a guy, it’s a radically different landscape. I think there is a gender gap that is ubiquitous in Hollywood, and I think a lot of times it’s hard to even identify.

“It’s not even about the contracts [or pay]. If you look at that project there’s probably about nine roles guy roles and one girl role. So even before you get to the point of money there’s already an issue going on underneath,” he said.
