Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

Back in November, the Washington Post reported that Michelle Williams would only be receiving a fraction of the salary Mark Wahlberg would be getting for doing reshoots the suddenly Kevin Spacey-free All the Money In the World. "But Michelle, no. Me, no", Scott said.

Williams has been nominated for an Academy Award four times and has five Golden Globe nominations, while Wahlberg has yet to receive a similar nod from either organization. Apparently, the film had all the money for star Mark Wahlberg, but not for his co-star Michelle Williams.

But the optics of paying the lead actor 1500 times more than the lead actress, if true, would be the latest example of the age-old pay gap between actors and actresses.

It turns out that Williams, who plays the lead character in the film, actually did get paid for the reshoots - a nominal fee of a little less than $1,000, about $80 per day.

But three sources, who remained anonymous, were cited in the report detailing Wahlberg and Williams' payments for the unprecedented shoot. Christopher Plummer was given the role, but the other principal actors had to come in to shoot additional scenes.

The anti-hero of Krrish was Naseeruddin Shah while Vivek Oberoi played the antagonist in Krrish 3. Hrithik and Rakesh Roshan had announced Krrish 4 during Ganesh Chatuthi celebrations in 2016 .


In fact, she'd previously said that "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. While they were aware that they needed to remove Kevin Spacey, they clearly weren't thinking the big picture of 'if we remove him and then people become aware that we're paying another person less, what are they going to think about that?'" she said.

Last year, Forbes Magazine named Wahlberg Hollywood's highest paid actor.

Williams and Youmans were first spotted together on the streets of Rome in July 2017 as the actress filmed All the Money in the World.

Filmmaker Judd Apatow called the news "almost hard to believe", but added that he wondered "if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane". Christopher had to get paid.

The news comes as a shock, especially in the wake of the Time's Up movement's domination at Sunday night's Golden Globes, which pushed for gender parity in Hollywood, in addition to supporting women against sexual harassment. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Instead of official statements, the Hollywood community has come out in outrage over the report that Williams made less than 1 percent of what Wahlberg made.
