Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

  • Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams

Last November, Director Ridley Scott announced to reshoot some scenes of his new film "All the Money in the World" - a fact-based drama about the kidnapping of a young John Paul Getty III.

And Williams - who has 12-year-old daughter Matilda with late ex-partner Heath Ledger - was only too happy to give up her Thanksgiving holiday and work for free on the reshoots because she'd anxious the project would be "flushed down the toilet" following the accusations against Spacey.

Wahlberg apparently also took a massive pay cut to appear in the movie, which will add more serious cred to his blockbuster-packed CV.

There are two reasons main reasons, the first being that Wahlberg and Williams - who are both represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor - started out the project with unequal contracts.

Williams previously told USA Today she was happy to accommodate the re-shoot, saying, "They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted".

Regardless, experts say, a huge pay gap between a male and female star is exactly what Hollywood doesn't need right now as it struggles in the wake of sexual harassment allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein and other prominent men in the industry.

While the film's director Ridley Scott claimed none of the actors were paid for the reshoot, reports stated Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million dollars for the work, with Williams paid $1,000. She tweeted after the Golden Globes, where Williams had been nominated for an award.

Although several actors with small parts, including Timothy Hutton, had agreed to return for reshoots for minimum pay, Wahlberg was not one of them, according to the people briefed on the negotiations. It remains unclear why Wahlberg's contract lacked reshoot clauses. Now, it has been revealed why and how Wahlberg was paid so much more than Williams and, the answer isn't in the least bit comforting. Plummer was brought in to replace Spacey following sexual misconduct allegations late previous year. "She deserves more than 1 per cent of her male co-star's salary".

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

"All the Money in the World" was produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures.

"The thing with pay inequality is it's one branch on the power tree", she said. Williams, who has been heralded as a blinding talent for her portrayals in films such as Blue Valentine, My Week With Marilyn and Manchester By The Sea. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money.
