Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million (Rs 9.5 crore) for the nine-day reshoots conducted for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World, while his co-star Michelle Williams was paid less than $1000 (Rs 63,000), a new report says.

Director Ridley Scott chose to reshoot scenes from "All the Money in the World" that included Kevin Spacey after the Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual harassment and assault.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to re-shoot scenes with Plummer, and that Williams was only paid her per diem - less than $1,000.

Khlo-money said that she was filmed separately by her own crew from that day when she found that she is going to be mother. I have such a phobia with belly buttons, and I know when you're really pregnant your innie becomes an outie.

It comes after director Ridley Scott claimed nobody was paid for the re-shoot, in which Christopher Plummer replaced disgraced actor Kevin Spacey. If Williams's agents had asked the producers to guarantee equal pay rates for everyone involved, "All The Money In The World" would have avoided a round of bad press, and Scott and his colleagues would have gotten double credit.

"This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe", wrote director and producer Judd Apatow.

Both Wahlberg and Williams are represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency, though USA Today noted Wahlberg's team negotiated the $1.5 million for the reshoots.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of what she was willing to do for the reshoots. 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.

In December, Scott told USA Today that he was able to keep costs down for the re-shoot because "everyone did it for nothing".

"We're looking into it", a union source said. Wahlberg was declared the highest-paid actor of 2017 by Forbes with an income of $68million before taxes.

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. Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them.
