US Magazine - 05-21


Women supporting women! Julianna Margulies explained why she spoke out about her salary dispute with CBS over an appearance on The Good Wife spinoff, The Good Fight. “I though, ‘Why am I protecting CBS?’ I said, ‘Yes,’ they said, ‘No.’ And you know what? I need to pave the way for the next one coming up,” Margulies, 52, told SiriusXM’s Jessica Shaw in an interview that’s set to air on Thursday, May 23. “They were twisting it that I didn’t want to be on the show, that I didn’t think it was good enough — I watch the show. I love the show. But I’m not a guest star. You don’t pay me a guest star salary. I would get a guest star salary if I went and did SVU; it’s not my show.”
