Mark Wahlberg paid 1500 times more than Michelle Williams for movie reshoots

According to USA Today, Wahlberg reportedly negotiated a $1.5-million payout for the last-minute work on the drama, while Williams earned a meager per diem fee for her work - an estimated $80 each day. Apparently, the film had all the money for star Mark Wahlberg, but not for his co-star Michelle Williams.

Scott told USA Today in December that he "refused to get paid" for the reshoots and that "everyone did it for nothing", but the large pay gap is raising criticism.

All the Money in the World, about the kidnapping of the 16-year-old son of oil tycoon Jean Paul Getty, was reshot with Christopher Plummer replacing Spacey after he was accused of sexual assault by multiple men.

Scott managed to assemble his cast and crew on short notice during the Christmas period, successfully reshooting and re-editing the film in time to meet its original release date.

"We're looking into it", said a source at the actors union, who noted that the guild's contract only covers minimums that actors can be paid.

Reps for Wahlberg, Williams and Scott did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

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.

How on earth can this be? The post showed an image of a black woman removing her brown t-shirt to turn into a white woman. UK Labor Party lawmaker Kate Osamor tweeted that she was "totally shocked, dismayed to say the very least" by the image.

"I thought I would have to raise my daughter to learn how to protect herself in a risky world, but I think the work that Tarana has done and the work that I'm learning how to do - we actually have the opportunity to hand our children a different world", Williams said on the Globes red carpet, according to People.

The report notes that the reshoot cost $10 million, which was put up by producer Imperative Entertainment.

The only thing to do in this situation is sending Williams a check for the same amount Wahlberg was given.

The salary disparities were reported on by USA Today on Monday and the details were confirmed by three people briefed on the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private contracts.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of the production team at the time.

Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg in All the Money in the World. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort", she'd said. He had the ability to negotiate since he already had taken a pay cut. The finished film was set to be released in theaters on December 25. [The actors] all came in free.
