Hollywood uproad over Mark Wahlberg-Michelle Williams pay gap

SAG-AFTRA Looking Into 'All The Money In The World' Pay Disparity Claims Michelle Williams was paid over thousand times lesser than Mark Wahlberg for “All the Money in the World”
Herman Weaver | 12 January, 2018, 03:14

The very same one that helped Wahlberg earn the top spot of Forbes' World's highest-paid actors of 2017 list at $68 million and Emma Stone land at the top of the highest-paid actress list with less than half of that at $26 million. After multiple men accused Spacey of unwanted sexual advances, the "All the Money in the World" team replaced him with Christopher Plummer and hastily reassembled much of the cast and crew in London for reshoots. While his co-actor Williams, who volunteered her time giving up a planned cozy Thanksgiving at home, was paid less than $1,000.

This would contradict director Ridley Scott's remarks to USA Today in December that "everyone did it for nothing".

Mark and Michelle are represented by the same agency - William Morris Endeavor - and there's been criticism that WME should have given Michelle a heads-up that Mark was getting paid, and paid a lot.

What's alarming and preposterous about this revelation is that Williams is a markedly more gifted and critically recognized film presence than Wahlberg, who hasn't even given a noteworthy acting performance in his career. The pay gap has been the subject of particularly intense attention in Hollywood since 2014, when a major hack of emails from Sony made clear that Jennifer Lawrence had been paid less than her male co-stars in "American Hustle".

The new footage was necessary after Christopher Plummer was brought in to the Ridley Scott-directed movie to replace Kevin Spacey, who was sacked amid allegations of past sexual misconduct.

The news comes as the pay gap between Wahlberg and Williams spirals into a war of words over what was or was not in their contracts.

Sony A still from "All the Money in the World".

The disclosure of specific salary details also came just after Sunday's Golden Globes, which was a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative to end sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood and other industries. Both actors had reshoots in their contracts and both actors were in Europe filming for approximately the same number of days. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted.

Meanwhile, Williams had previously told USA Today: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

Although several actors with small parts, including Timothy Hutton, had agreed to return for the reshoot for minimum pay, Wahlberg was not one of them, according to the sources.

Commenting on the reshoots of the Drama/Mystery - All the Money in the World - Ridley Scott had earlier claimed that the actors happily did the re-shoots.
