Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World made headlines late previous year when the director was forced to reshoot the film following sexual misconduct allegations made against former star Kevin Spacey.

The development comes after a report, originally published by The Washington Post, and later by USA Today, claims Wahlberg earned $1.5 million, while Williams made less than $1,000.

Again as is typical, the main woman involved - Williams - realized what she needed to do to help salvage the project.

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor, which has not commented on the report. According to people briefed on the matter, she quickly agreed to return when approached about Scott's proposal, the New York Times said.

The publication, which quotes three anonymous sources "familiar with the situation" revealed that representatives for Wahlberg - named as Hollywood's highest-paid actor by Forbes last August - negotiated for the $1.5 million figure. She ultimately worked over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight after arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", she told USA Today at the time. Williams can, and has, unequivocally outacted Wahlberg in the majority of her roles versus his, if not in all of them.

"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. "Everyone did it for nothing", he said, adding, "I refused to get paid".

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. And it involves the reshoots made necessary by the attempt to release the movie with a clear conscience.

"She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress", Chastain tweeted on Tuesday. "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane".

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.

Hollywood figures were shocked at the pay gap reported by USA Today.

UPDATE (1/11, 11:45 p.m. EST): Following the report from USA Today, the film actors labour union SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) is now investigating whether the film broke any of the union's contract rules, Deadline reports.
