Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

"All The Money In The World" star Michelle Williams was paid less than $1,000 (£730) for a 10-day reshoot of the film, while co-star Mark Wahlberg made $1.5 million (£1.1 million), according to USA Today.

USA Today reports that three sources confirmed Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million United States dollars for reshooting, while Williams was paid an $80 per diem totalling less than $1,000. Williams intrinsically wanted the project to work and waived her fee.

Williams quickly agreed to return.

The publication, which quotes three anonymous sources "familiar with the situation" revealed that representatives for Wahlberg - named as Hollywood's highest-paid actor by Forbes last August - negotiated for the $1.5 million figure. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort", she'd said. Williams can, and has, unequivocally outacted Wahlberg in the majority of her roles versus his, if not in all of them. "But everyone was so supportive, no one more than my 12-year-old daughter, who said, "You worked so hard on this". The filmmaker, cast and crew raced to reshoot scenes in November (17) in an ambitious attempt to keep to the movie's December release schedule, and Michelle confesses it was her daughter, Matilda, who pushed her to go back to work over the USA holiday. Wahlberg was already not thrilled to have worked for roughly 80 percent less than his standard fee, the Times said, especially since overseas distributors were using his box office track record to promote the film.

Scott had previously told USA Today that the actors did the reshoots "for nothing" - meaning union minimums - and that he also did not get paid. It is possible that those representing Williams did not know about the deal that Wahlberg was able to secure.

The disclosure of salary details came after Sunday's Golden Globes, which was a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative to end sexual harassment and gender inequality.

Williams reiterated: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

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

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

The Washington Post reported in November the pay disparity for the reshoot and noted that "Wahlberg, along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain".

The Screen Actors Guild, the labor union that represents screen actors, is looking into the matter to see if any of the guild's contract rules were broken, Deadline reported.
