  • Mark Wahlberg earns 1500 times more than Michelle Williams for All The Money In The World reshoot

Mark Wahlberg refused to approve Christopher Plummer as a replacement for Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World unless he was paid over a million dollars for the reshoot, USA TODAY has learned. She ultimately worked over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight after arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her.

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

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor, which has not commented on the report.

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", the source told the news outlet. Especially to all the purists who say that talent is the only barometer we should be using to measure what someone is worth in terms of their salaries. However, Sources told USA Today that Wahlberg earned $1.5 million for the reshoot while Williams only received about 1% of that saying that she would forgo her pay in appreciation of this huge effort. Scott said publicly that everyone involved in the reshoots did so without additional compensation.




The kidnapping drama directed by Ridley Scott was hastily reshot in November after a series of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Kevin Spacey, who previously starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty.

Emma Stone, the highest paid actress, took home an estimated US$26 million.

Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer only one month before the film was set to hit theatres past year, after sexual harassment allegations emerged. It's been alternately written that neither Williams nor Wahlberg had reshoot clauses in their contracts, and also that Williams's contract contained that clause while Wahberg's didn't - which would free Wahlberg up to negotiate for more money, while Williams wouldn't have such leeway. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary", tweetedactress Jessica Chastain. It is possible that those representing Williams did not know about the deal that Wahlberg was able to secure. The reps said the actor "never" works for free and demanded the money, with the financiers agreeing to pay as they had no choice. 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. Williams, who has been heralded as a blinding talent for her portrayals in films such as Blue Valentine, My Week With Marilyn and Manchester By The Sea.
