The “Scream” star previously announced she was exiting the franchise after 25 years of playing Sidney Prescott. Campbell cited “negotiation” issues behind her departure ahead of “Scream 6.” Now, Campbell is clarifying exactly what happened behind the scenes.
“I did not feel that what I was being offered equated to the value that I bring to this franchise, and have brought to this franchise, for 25 years,” Campbell told People. “As a woman in this business, I think it’s really important for us to be valued and to fight to be valued. I honestly don’t believe that if I were a man and had done five installments of a huge blockbuster franchise over 25 years, that the number that I was offered would be the number that would be offered to a man.
