Reports that Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to reshoot his scenes for All the Money in the World while Michelle Williams earned less than 1% of that for the same work have raised eyebrows in Hollywood and across the country.
"She has been in the industry for 20 years". The report published Tuesday night cites three sources who are familiar with the situation.
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.
Other actresses including Mia Farrow, Amber Tamblyn and Sophia Bush also spoke out on social media against the reported pay disparity. They are both represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency.More news: Could it be? Kylie Jenner may reveal her pregnancy this weekend
Produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures, "All the Money in the World" recounts the 1973 kidnapping and ransoming of J. P. Getty III, grandson of J. Paul Getty. In 2017, Wahlberg beat out Dwayne Johnson to become Hollywood's highest-paid actor, with income of $68 million, according to Forbes magazine.
Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the alleged incident, but apologized for what he said would have been "inappropriate drunken behavior".
After it was announced that All the Money in the World director Ridley Scott had recast Kevin Spacey's role with Christopher Plummer, it was reported that all of the actors came back to do the reshoots for free. I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly. Scott told the newspaper then, "Everyone did it for nothing".
As her date, Williams brought civil rights activist Tarana Burke, the creator in 2006 of the "Me Too" movement to raise awareness of the ubiquity of sexual abuse.
The reshoots, which took place in late November, reportedly cost $10 million, and in December Scott told USA Today that the budget was "expensive but not as expensive as you think" because "everyone did it for nothing".
Also speaking to USA Today, Williams said of the reshoot that "they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted, because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".
