The women of Hollywood are becoming a very powerful group.

While they've spent the past few months calling out the men in the industry whose sexual misconduct had gone unnoticed, now they are calling out the gender pay gap in the industry, and they're starting with E!

Eva Longoria, Debra Messing, and others took the opportunity of having microphones in their faces while walking the red carpet to speak about the pay inequality, specifically for Catt Sadler, who learned she was earning considerably less at E! than her co-host Jason Kennedy.

On December 19, Sadler had written a blog post announcing that she was leaving the cable outlet.

"An executive from E brought something alarming to my attention — namely that there was a massive disparity in pay between my similarly situated male co-host and myself," she wrote. "More recently, when E reached out to renew and extend my deal, I learned that he wasn't just making a little more than I was. In fact, he was making close to double my salary for the past several years."

The cable outlet's Ryan Seacrest was interviewing Eva Longoria along with Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman. Longoria said she supported Sadler.

"With Time's Up we support gender equity and equal pay, and we hope E! follows that lead with Catt as well," she issued. "We stand with you Catt."

Seacrest was left to say, "We love Catt, we love her."

Messing also expressed her thoughts when being interviewed by E!'s Giuliana Rancic.

"I was so shocked to hear that E! doesn't believe in paying their female co-hosts as their male co-hosts," she said. "I miss Catt Sadler. So we stand with her. That's something that can change tomorrow, you know. We want people to start having this conversation that women are just as valuable as men."

Laura Dern spoke up as well during her interview.

"We need the powers that be, and all the industries and all the networks, including E!, to help us with closing this pay gender gap," she requested.

Sarah Jessica Parker didn't mention Sadler's name in an interview with Seacrest, but it was implied.

"I know it's affected your network," she told him. "I know that there have been conversations that have been challenging for all of us, but I think it's incredibly timely. It's exciting. And parity and equality and safe work environments, they shouldn't be controversial."

Sadler, 43, worked on E! since 2006, hosting The Daily 10, E! News, and hosted Live from the Red Carpet.
