Michelle Williams Paid 1% Of Wahlberg's Fee For 'All The Money' Reshoots

"All the Money in the World" could be facing another controversy over reports that Mark Wahlberg made millions more than Michelle Williams for reshoots. But that hasn't stopped several of Williams's friends and colleagues from speaking out and sharing their outrage about the reported pay disparity on Twitter.

But new information reveals ugly math behind the Hollywood victory. He previously told USA Today that "everyone" (save the crew and Plummer) "did it for nothing".

"The whole reshoot was-in normal terms was expensive but not as expensive as you think. Because all of them, everyone did it for nothing". "If that'll help you, you can have it, you can have my break and you can have whatever and I'll just be there waiting", she said during an interview Babel in December. Regarding actor fees, Scott added, "They all came in free".

But it turns out that there was a disparity in who got paid for what.

"On the day after display of female power at the #goldenglobes, I learned that there was an egregious pay gap between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg for the All The Money In The World reshoot", Silverstein tweeted.

This means that the single mother traveled to Italy over Thanksgiving for a last-second reshoot while being paid 0.04 % what her male co-star was making for his work. According to USA Today's sources, Williams was paid $80 per day, totaling less than $1000, while Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million. It's bad for Wahlberg, who chose $1.5 million over making a powerful statement, when he earned a reported $68 million in 2017.

A story inspired by the incredible true-life tale surrounding the kidnapping of the 16-year-old grandson of billionaire oil magnate John Paul Getty in 1973, All the Money in the World originally starred disgraced actor Kevin Spacey as the elder Getty, but the completed film was put into jeopardy when several allegations of sexual misconduct against him surfaced in the fall.

Scott waived his fee, too, but it was to save his own movie. Whether Wahlberg himself was involved with that isn't clear, but Michelle Williams was apparently not told that Wahlberg was getting paid that amount.

That Williams and Wahlberg share representation is even more awkward; expect Williams to be seeking new agents any day now, unless they can get the studio to rectify the situation. The drama has grossed $20.2 million since its release two weeks ago.
