Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

SAG-AFTRA Looking Into 'All The Money In The World' Pay Disparity Claims Michelle Williams was paid over thousand times lesser than Mark Wahlberg for “All the Money in the World”

Hollywood is voicing its outrage at reports that Mark Wahlberg was paid 1,500 times more than Michelle Williams to reshoot the kidnap drama All The Money In The World.

The new footage was necessary after Christopher Plummer was brought in to the Ridley Scott-directed movie to replace Kevin Spacey, who was sacked amid allegations of past sexual misconduct.

The second reason Williams walked away with what amounted to almost $80 a day for reshoots is that, because Wahlberg's contract didn't necessitate reshoots, he was able to renegotiate his pay for them.

It's unclear whether Williams, who is represented by the same talent agency as Wahlberg but has a different agent, would have made the same decision had she known that her male co-star was pulling in $1.5 million for the reshoot.

Both Wahlberg and Williams are represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency, though USA Today noted Wahlberg's team negotiated the $1.5 million for the reshoots. Much of the film's foreign sales hung on Wahlberg's attachment.

Actor Christopher Plummer replaced Spacey in the role of billionaire Jean Paul Getty in the film based on the real-life kidnapping of Getty's grandson John Paul Getty III. He had the ability to negotiate since he already had taken a pay cut.

Jessica Chastain, an outspoken advocate of gender parity for Hollywood salaries, wrote in support of Williams, "She has been in the industry for 20 yrs". But with the film's survival on the line, she agreed to take far less: the union-designated rate of $80 per day, which worked out to less than $1,000 for the 10 days of reshoots. "She deserves more than one per cent of her male co-star's salary".

Whatever happened, it turns out that Scott was in the dark about Wahlberg's lucrative deal, and that's why he gave interviews, including to USA Today in December, saying that "everyone did it for nothing". "But everyone was so supportive, no one more than my 12-year-old daughter, who said, "You worked so hard on this. But Michelle, no. Me, no".

The four-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker revealed that "they all came in free" and that "Christopher had to get paid".

Short-term expedience can end up being costly - and not just for the person who didn't get paid. "But Michelle, no. Me, no". But the optics of paying the lead actor 1500 times more than the lead actress, if true, would be the latest example of the age-old pay gap between actors and actresses.

Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage: He was the only major missing piece and the clock was ticking.
