    The studio agreed with me because it was the only time I ever collected a pay-or-play on my contract,” Winger told the publication. “换一种说法, I collected my pay even though I did not play, and that’s very hard to get in a court.
      Winger also said that after meeting the real-life players on whom the film was based, she didn’t think the movie honored them
