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

Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid more than Michelle Williams for film reshoot

It's not clear if Williams is aware that her co-star was paid more for reshooting the scenes, but she told USA Today in December that she was willing to do what needed to be done for the reshoot.

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". "I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home (for Thanksgiving) and make alternate arrangements for them", she told Vulture.

Hollywood is outraged at the pay disparity, with many taking to social media to voice their fury.

Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by William Morris/Endeavor.

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".

"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.

Incredible Footage Shows Alligators In USA Pushing Snouts Through Ice To Survive
When the water or air temperatures are too low for them to be active, experts say these reptiles go into a "state of brumation". The alligators went into the water last week during the "bomb cyclone" that hit the East coast. "Pretty unbelievable . ...

The report on the massive wage disparity - which amounts to Williams receiving less than 1 percent of her male co-star's fee - was first published in USA Today. Jessica Chastain, now starring in the Golden Globe-nominated "Molly's Game", called Williams a "brilliant" actress who "deserves more". Apparently Williams didn't know that Wahlberg was getting such a good pay cheque for the reshoots.

The reshoots came about following allegations of sexual misconduct against Kevin Spacey, who was ultimately replaced in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty by Christopher Plummer. The process cost a reported $10 million. It seems there was little-to-no communication about each actor's deal between the agents (apparently this is normal), and if there was, they did a much better job representing Wahlberg, their male star, over Williams.

The pair filmed with Spacey's replacement, Christopher Plummer, Thanksgiving week.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". The problem is that she, her representatives and the producers of "All The Money In The World" all accepted that pulling off that ambitious goal required her to forfeit a salary. But Williams and Wahlberg, both of whom had agreed to appear in "All the Money in the World" for less than their standard fee, took different approaches to the reshoots, according to the people briefed on the matter. There's a economic differential at play -but it's not $1.5 million vs.an $80 per diem.

Spokesmen for Imperative, William Morris Endeavor and Sony Pictures, which distributed "All the Money in the World", declined to comment for this article.
