Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

All The Money In The World

All The Money In The World

Mark Wahlberg reportedly held up production on "All the Money in the World" reshoots until he got his $1.5 million payday.

Williams also agreed to work over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight and arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

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.

In an interview with USA Today, Scott seemed to imply that he and the cast had some unwritten agreement to work overtime without pay because they wanted the film made, and they needed to get Kevin Spacey out of it.

"We can not let one person's behavior affect the good work of all of these other people", Scott said at the time.

It's unclear whether Williams, who is represented by the same talent agency as Wahlberg but has a different agent, would have made the same decision had she known that her male co-star was pulling in $1.5 million for the reshoot. Britto said it was important to acknowledge that it wasn't clear whether Walhberg or his team negotiated the reshoot salary, and said he shouldn't be portrayed as the "poster child" for pay gaps between the genders. In November, it was announced that Christopher Plummer would replace Kevin Spacey in the film, which required Plummer and the cast and crew to quickly reassemble in London for reshoots, a risky move that ultimately saved a movie that nearly immediately after earned Golden Globe nominations for director Ridley Scott, and actors Christopher Plummer and Michelle Williams. "She deserves more than 1% of her male co-star's salary", Ms Chastain tweeted. The first was the desire to replace Spacey so the movie would not be shelved, and to demonstrate that studios and directors didn't have to stand by high-profile men who were accused of heinous behavior to justify their investments. "Everyone did it for nothing", he said, adding, "I refused to get paid". 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. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money. So it's easy to see how those involved in "All The Money In The World" seemed caught between two competing imperatives.

Wahlberg was already not thrilled to have worked for roughly 80 per cent less than his standard fee, the sources said, especially when overseas distributors were using his box-office track record to promote the film.
