Fox News host Ainsley Earhardt revealed on Monday that she was not paid as much as her male co-hosts.

During a discussion about the Academy Awards, Fox & Friends co-host Brian Kilmeade reported that actress Natalie Portman had spoken out against the gender pay gap in Hollywood.

"That whole pay gap thing, it's not our problem -- it's not an issue just in America," Kilmeade announced. "It's a huge issue in Hollywood. She brought up, right now for a woman to get paid as much as a man, it's 80 cents on the dollar [in America]. In Hollywood, it's 30 cents on the dollar."

"Which is unbelievable to me," he continued. "Because if you have a woman that brings you to the box office, she should get paid like that or a man, where gender shouldn't even be an issue."

"That's what I'm telling you," Earhardt replied. "Y'all should tell me how much y'all make and then I should get paid 80 percent."

"No!" Kilmeade exclaimed. "You should get 100 percent."

"I should!" Earhardt agreed. "But according to what's happening in America -- I think y'all should think about this. Write it down. I won't tell anyone. I'll use it to negotiate."
