Anger at claims Mark Wahlberg banked 1500 times more than Michelle Williams

Anger at claims Mark Wahlberg banked 1500 times more than Michelle Williams

Mark Wahlberg reportedly nabbed more than 1,500 times Michelle Williams' pay for reshooting scenes in "All the Money in the World", a new report claims.

USA TODAY has since learned Wahlberg's team actually negotiated a hefty fee, with the actor paid $1.5 million for his reshoots.

Scott brought in Christopher Plummer to replace him - to critical success - but the switch meant that co-stars Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg also had to reshoot their scenes. But the one move that made shockwaves was when Ridley Scott chose to reshoot all of Spacey's scenes in All the Money in the World and replace him with Christopher Plummer.

At Sunday's Golden Globes awards ceremony, stars donned black outfits in solidarity with the Time's Up initative - a response to the #MeToo campaign that erupted in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey scandals.

It was an evening full of inspiring messages and feelings of hopefulness, but only a few days later, we're learning that Williams, like many women in Hollywood and around the world, is continuing to deal with wage gap issues.

Golden Globe-winning actress Mia Farrow said the disparity was "outrageously unfair", adding that she was "never, ever paid even a quarter of what the male lead received".

Scott told USA Today last month that the reshoot was made possible because nobody but Plummer and the crew got paid. In December, Scott told USA TODAY that the undertaking was aided by the fact that "everyone did it for nothing".

That film is now at the forefront of Hollywood's gender pay gap debate as outrage mounts regarding the actress's salary.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams attend the premiere of Sony Pictures Entertainment's "All The Money In The World" at Samuel Goldwyn Theater on December 18, 2017 in Beverly Hills, California. Michelle-whose character, Gail Harris, is the film's lead-received an $80 per diem that earned her less than $1,000 total. He is known for "driving a tough bargain" according to The Washington Post. "Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them".

The ceremony highlighted the Time's Up initiative, which seeks to take action on sexual harassment and inequality in the workplace.

The Brokeback Mountain star said she wanted to be as accommodating as possible in order to facilities the reshoots, saying she "appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".
