Mark Wahlberg was paid 1500 times more than Michelle Williams

Mark Wahlberg was paid 1500 times more than Michelle Williams

Sources close to the film have now disclosed to USA Today that while Michelle Williams was paid a per diem of $80 per day, which amounted to $1,000 for all the reshoots, her co-star Mark Wahlberg took home a $1.5 million cheque for the added days of filming. Instead of official statements, the Hollywood community has come out in outrage over the report that Williams made less than 1 percent of what Wahlberg made.

- Judd Apatow (@JuddApatow) January 10, 2018 Michelle Williams is one of the best actress working right now. Williams, Plummer, and Scott were all nominated for Golden Globes. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary", tweeted actress Jessica Chastain.

The pay disparity arrives as the entertainment industry continues to be rocked by the downfall of movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, a flood of sexual misconduct allegations against dozens of other powerful Hollywood figures and a rising #MeToo movement. In response to the USA Today report that Wahlberg had actually done it for millions, some fans said that Williams' lack of pay in comparison was because she was a woman. "It's a demand for fair practices".

It was absolutely vital that All the Money in the World was completed in time for December release.

But in actuality, Wahlberg, who plays Getty's advisor Fletcher Case, and his team negotiated a $1.5-million U.S. fee, while Williams, who plays the kidnapped grandson's mother, received less than $1,000, according to USA Today, which sources three people not authorized to speak publicly about it. Williams has yet to address the disparity and was unaware her co-star was being paid significantly more.

Last year, Forbes Magazine named Wahlberg Hollywood's highest paid actor.

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.

Spacey was accused past year of making unwanted sexual advances towards men. He has also been accused of serial harassment throughout his career. Matilda is the All the Money in the World star's only child with the late actor, Heath Ledger.

Director Ridley Scott previously told the Daily News that he made the decision to remove Spacey "immediately". CNNMoney has reached out to Scott for comment. "Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them".
