The Pay Gap Between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams

13 January 2018, 07:27 | Israel Caldwell

Mark Wahlberg reportedly refused to approve Christopher Plummer without his $1.5m fee

Mark Wahlberg wouldn't approve Christopher Plummer unless he got paid $1.5 million for reshoots

All the Money in the World is filled with drama-onscreen and off. Production hit a roadblock when sexual misconduct allegations surfaced about Kevin Spacey, who plays a supporting character in the film, prompting reshoots with Christopher Plummer in Spacey's stead.

A source claimed: "What [Wahlberg] said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he f-- them".

A representative for Mark Wahlberg has been contacted for comment.

Scott replaced Spacey with Christopher Plummer and re-shot the scenes just six weeks before the film's release. According to USA Today and two sources familiar with the production, Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract. But the new USA Today story debunks both of those claims, reporting that both actors had reshoots included their contracts. The rumored pay gap sparked backlash from several Hollywood stars like Jessica Chastain and Williams' close friend, Busy Phillips.

Let's not forget, it was Williams who walked away from the film with a Golden Globe nomination.

Not everybody is on the same schedule, so I've seen different versions of different things that are potentially exciting. When asked how many will actually get made, Bloys said, "I'll do anywhere from zero to five! ".


This means that the single mother traveled to Italy in late November for a last-second reshoot while being paid 0.05 per cent what her male co-star was making for his work. But a source told USA Today that Wahlberg and Williams, both clients of William Morris Endeavor (the talent agency that negotiated the Spacey scandal payout for Wahlberg) had reshoots worked into their contracts.

I said, 'Will you come back [and reshoot]?' They said, 'Absolutely.' I said, 'For how much?' They said, 'For free.' Everyone came back for nothing.

A spokesperson for SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) has said that if Williams was paid the minimum amount that she could be paid, they wouldn't be able to do anything about it, as Wahlberg had neogtiated his above-scale rate. "They all came in for free".

'Everyone did it for nothing, ' he told USA Today.
