Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Hollywood was abuzz Wednesday with chatter about a report that said actress Michelle Williams received less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg's paycheck for reshoots of their film, "All the Money in the World".

The movie made headlines late in 2017 when Scott announced that he would reshoot the movie shortly before its release to replace Kevin Spacey, who had been accused of serious sexual misconduct, with Christopher Plummer in the role of the elder Getty.

USA Today reported that Wahlberg's team negotiated a hefty deal when sudden reshoots had to be conducted for the film following the sacking of Kevin Spacey.

Jessica Chastain, the actress, said: "Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World". She tweeted after the Golden Globes, where Williams had been nominated for an award.

In previous interviews, Williams indicated she was willing to earn just the per diem or waive her salary to save the film. "She deserves more than 1 per cent of her male co-star's salary".

SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guildā€American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) is responding to outrage over reports of pay disparity among the cast of the movie "All The Money In The World".

LaVar Ball throws more criticism at Luke Walton, Lakers organisation
It is unclear whether the organization will address LaVar Ball's comments as they relate to their head coach. Ball was asked directly if he likes Walton as his head coach.

Mark and Michelle are represented by the same agency - William Morris Endeavor - and there's been criticism that WME should have given Michelle a heads-up that Mark was getting paid, and paid a lot.

In December, Scott told USA Today that he was able to keep costs down for the re-shoot because "everyone did it for nothing". Williams took home a paltry $1000 for giving up her time and Thanksgiving to reshoot, meanwhile Wahlberg pocketed $1.5 million for doing exactly the same.

Although several actors with small parts, including Timothy Hutton, had agreed to return for the reshoot for minimum pay, Wahlberg was not one of them, according to the sources. Many wore pins that read Time's Up, the name of a new coalition in Hollywood that aims to end the prevalence of sexual harassment that led to the #MeToo movement and to create gender equality.

In August, Forbes named Wahlberg the highest-paid actor of the year, calculating his pretax and prefee earnings at $68 million. The people briefed on the matter said that she did so believing that other participants had made the same decision.

According to the New York Times and TMZ, Wahlberg told Scott he'd do the reshoots though he didn't talk about money with the director. Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them.
