Mark Wahlberg Made $1.5 Million, Michelle Williams Below $1,000 From 'All The Money' Reshoot

All The Money In The World is in big trouble after the massive pay disparity between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams has been exposed. 

Last year, following the sexual harassment allegations against Kevin Spacey, Sir Ridley Scott's new movie had to recast J. Paul Getty and reshoot all scenes involving the lead character. The director and producer previously claimed that the talents did not ask for compensation for the work they did for the reshoots, but apparently, that was not the case.

Following the movie's defeat at the 2018 Golden Globes, new information surfaced claiming that the actors got paid for the additional work. Moreover, the payment might not exactly be fair.

Pay Gap

According to USA Today, Mark Wahlberg, who played the role of Fletcher Chase, Getty's advisor, was paid $1.5 million for the reshoots. However, Michelle Williams, who was cast as Gail Harris aka Getty III's (Charlie Plummer) mother, was paid a measly $80 per diem or less than $1,000 in total.

The publication also learned that Wahlberg's camp was able to negotiate for the hefty fee, but Williams' did not. Both are represented by the same agency.

The Washington Post was first to report about the pay discrepancy back in November. A source who was not able to speak publicly shared that Wahlberg was getting millions while Williams and the other actors agreed to be paid modestly for the additional 10 days of reshoots.

All The Money In The World was reportedly given a budget of $10 million for the reshoots and new marketing materials that do not involve Spacey. Aside from the actors, an entire crew had to be hired on short notice to film the scenes.

The Internet Protests

The story published this week by USA Today immediately went viral. Many, including feminist celebrities Jessica Chastain and Amber Tamblyn, slammed the movie and the people behind it because of the glaring pay disparity.

"Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World. She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress. She has been in the industry for 20 yrs," Chastain tweeted. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary."

"This is totally unacceptable," declared Tamblyn on social media.

Neither Wahlberg's nor Williams' camp has released a statement regarding the issue.

All The Money In The World was released in December. It received three nominations including a Best Performance by an Actress for Williams at the 2018 Golden Globes. Meanwhile, Plummer was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the BAFTA Awards.
