Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

12 January 2018

The pay gap issue has proved its severity in the Forbes' World's Highest-Paid Actors list where the top 10 actors raked in nearly $500 million a year ago while the top 10 women managed only about a third. The entire reason that these reshoots were required was because Christopher Plummer was hired to play the role Kevin Spacey had initially been cast in.

The Wrap said Williams' contract included reshoots, contributing to why she was paid just an $80 per diem for her time.

In December, Scott told USA Today that "everyone did it for nothing".

Actress Michelle Williams was reportedly paid less than 1% of co-star Mark Wahlberg's salary for a 10-day re-shoot on "All the Money in the World". "Christopher had to get paid".

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor, which has not commented on the report.

What's alarming and preposterous about this revelation is that Williams is a markedly more gifted and critically recognized film presence than Wahlberg, who hasn't even given a noteworthy acting performance in his career.

As per a report by USA Today, Mark Wahlberg's team negotiated a hefty deal after they were approached for sudden re-shoots.

The 37-year-old actress was disappointed to learn about the sexual misconduct allegations made against Kevin Spacey - who had a starring role in the movie - and was anxious about how she was going to tell her 12-year-old daughter Matilda that she had to change their Thanksgiving plans to reshoot some of the scenes in the movie with Christopher Plummer.

But Williams, billed as the lead actress, got paid way less than Wahlberg, a supporting actor.

Michelle Williams was not betrayed by anyone when she agreed to do reshoots for free when her male counterpart raked in $1.5 million.so claim sources familiar with the situation.

The news comes after Hollywood stars wore black to the Golden Globes on Sunday to take a stand against sexual harassment and for gender equality as a part of the "Time's Up" initiative, of which Williams is a founding member.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of what she was willing to do for the reshoots. "But everyone was so supportive, no one more than my 12-year-old daughter, who said, "You worked so hard on this".

But with Williams already on board and the clock ticking towards the release date, Wahlberg's representatives knew they had leverage over the production team, both the Times and TMZ said. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort". So when Scott called for 10 days of reshoots, Wahlberg had the opportunity to negotiate additional pay.
