Wahlberg Earned 1500 Times More Than Williams For Doing The Same Work

  • Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg in All the Money in the World Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to reshoot scenes after Kevin Spacey was dropped while Williams was paid less than $1,000

All the Money in the World is based on the real-life kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and his mother Gail (Williams) attempt to convince his billionaire grandfather (Plummer) to pay the ransom.

However, Wahlberg was reportedly paid an additional $1.5 million to re-shoot the scenes.

USA Today reported it had since learned that Wahlberg's team had actually negotiated a deal in which he would be paid $1.5 million for his reshoot, and that Williams wasn't told.

"I received a phone call from a producer and [they] said, 'Please don't talk to anybody about this, but would you, if we could?' And I said, 'Not only would I, but I'll give you back my salary if that would help". And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted.

"We're looking into it", said a source at the actors union, who noted that the guild's contract only covers minimums that actors can be paid. (Williams is represented at William Morris Endeavor by Brent Morley.) Wahlberg was already not thrilled to have worked for roughly 80 percent less than his standard fee, the people said, especially since overseas distributors were using his box office track record to promote the film. "She deserves more than 1% of her male co-star's salary", Ms Chastain tweeted.

The court also issued a notice to the Centre seeking its response to a writ petition filed by five members of the LGBT community . The petitioners had told the court they were living in constant fear of police action due to their sexual orientation.

The actor refused to approve Christopher Plummer as Kevin Spacey's replacement, according to USA Today. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

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.

Ridley Scott, who directed the movie, and Imperative Entertainment, the company that produced and financed it, were lauded in December for purging the disgraced actor Kevin Spacey from the film.

The pay gap, which was first reported by the Washington Post back in November, has got people all riled up, including producer Judd Apatow who said it was "so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe". A SAG-AFTRA representative later issued an official statement on the matter.

"It further shows the reason why these kinds of movements are needed to bring attention to the injustices and the disparities that exist between the genders, the staggering pay gap that exists across every business discipline", she said. While his co-actor Williams, who volunteered her time giving up a planned cozy Thanksgiving at home, was paid less than $1,000.

Scott told USA Today last month that the reshoot was made possible because nobody but Plummer and the crew got paid.
