Sandra Bullock calls for equal pay for U.S women's soccer team

Sandra Bullock is the latest Hollywood celebrity to demand equal pay for U.S women's national soccer team, following their win against the Netherlands at the recently concluded World Cup.

According to 'The Hollywood Reporter', the Oscar winner presented the "best team" award to the Carli Lloyd-Megan Rapinoe-led squad at the 2019 ESPY Awards on Wednesday.

Before handing over the mic to Llyod, Sandra said, "All those in favor of equal pay, say aye," which led to a roar of "Equal Pay!" from the audience.

Carli and Rapinoe, who has been particularly outspoken about the issue, kept their remarks short.

Carli said the team has been on an "incredible journey" these last few months and thanked their supporters from all around the world.

"Super proud of all these 22 fabulous ladies. Thank you so much and here's to the next world cup in another four years," she said.
