Why Was Mark Wahlberg Paid 1,500 Times More Than Michelle Williams to Reshoot a Film?

A blatant pay disparity.

Directly following the star-filled 2018 Golden Globe Awards, USA Today shared news of actress Michelle Williams’ pay disparity.

According to the report, Williams’ co-star in the film All The Money In The World, Mark Wahlberg was paid 1,500 times more than her to reshoot scenes. Last year, the film’s director, Ridley Scott chose to replace actor Kevin Spacey with Wahlberg due to sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey. In December, Scott said in a statement: “everyone did it for nothing.” Blatantly meaning that the lead actress and main actor would be reshooting the film per diem. USA Today presented information pointing to Wahlberg’s representatives negotiating a fee of $1.5 million USD alongside Williams who was reportedly paid less than $1,000 USD.

All The Money In The World released on Christmas day last year and has so far raked in over $20 million USD.

This report points to the importance of women-led initiatives like the new Time’s Up anti-harassment organization which Williams has endorsed publicly.
