Hollywood uproad over Mark Wahlberg-Michelle Williams pay gap

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

Reports suggest that a few scenes from Ridley Scott-directed movie were to be re-shot after Kevin Spacey was sacked from the movie following sexual harassment allegations.

Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer only one month before the film was set to hit theatres previous year, after sexual harassment allegations emerged.

Citing an unnamed source, who was apparently familiar with the pay negotiations, the Washington Post revealed in November that Wahlberg was paid $2million for the shoot.

Imperative Entertainment, which financed the film, put up an additional $10 million for the reshoot.

Ironically, Mark Wahlberg's co-star, Michelle Williams, was paid according to the Screen Actors Guild guidelines, with a minimum of $80 per day.

As per a report by USA Today, Mark Wahlberg's team negotiated a hefty deal after they were approached for sudden re-shoots. The disclosure prompted instant outrage.

"She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress", Chastain tweeted on Tuesday.

The director Judd Apatow wrote, "This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe". "This is how this business works".

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor, which has not commented on the report. To call attention to the movement, many celebrities wore black to Sunday's Golden Globe Awards. Wahlberg's stipulated that he was not required to do reshoots, while Williams was, according to The Wrap. If anything, it fuels it, she said.

Williams also agreed to work over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight and arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her. But ultimately, the principle is that these type of tipped scale atrocities happen to women, who are objectively better at what they do than men, all the time.

After much digging, it appears that Williams, as well as many other people who worked on the film, took a massive pay cut as a beacon of gratitude for all the work the shots would take under the circumstances. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money.

In previous interviews, Williams indicated she was willing to earn just the per diem or waive her salary to save the film.

Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage over the production team: He was the only major missing piece, and the clock was ticking. The film was set to be released on Dec 25. So it's easy to see how those involved in "All The Money In The World" seemed caught between two competing imperatives.

A lawyer and a rep for Wahlberg did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Individual client contracts are not always discussed between agents who work at the same agency.

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by WME.

But many advocates and actresses are likely to find those explanations inadequate.
