Tessa Thompson Gets Candid About Her Contract Negotiations for 'Men In Black: International'

Tessa Thompson is on the cover of Marie Claire‘s July 2019 issue, on newsstands on June 20.

Here’s what the 35-year-old actress had to say…


On contract negotiations for Men In Black: International: “When we are having the conversation around how we structure our deals, I said, ‘I understand who Chris Hemsworth is and who I am not relative to him, globally and otherwise. But in the success of the film, that changes. In success, I want equity. Because then you can’t make the same argument.”


On working with Chris Hemsworth for their second project: “Like [Katharine] Hepburn and [Spencer] Tracy. We’re trying to do that old-Hollywood thing: ‘It’s us again! Still like us?”


On her spa experience with MIB co-star Emma Thompson: “Like the afterlife: just a bunch of English people in bathrobes walking around getting treatments. I was like, What is my life? I’m walking the grounds with Emma Thompson?”
