AFTRA Looking Into 'All The Money In The World' Pay Disparity Claims

All the pay disparity in the world Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg reshot scenes featuring Kevin Spacey back in November after replacing the disgraced actor with Christopher Plummer

A new report in USA Today claims that Mark Whalberg, who plays negotiator and former Central Intelligence Agency operative Fletcher Chase, made $1.5 million for All the Money in the World's reshoots.

Michelle Williams, who gives arguably the best performance in the film, apparently took home less than $1,000 for the reshoot work, as per a report in USA Today.

However, the new USA Today report states that Wahlberg negotiated for a big paycheck, and Williams was not informed.

On January 9, USA Today reported that Wahlberg earned $1.5 million for the reshoot, which constitutes 15 percent of the reshoot budget.

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. But the film ended up being recognized by many for Scott's ability to complete the reshoots in nine to ten days, and still release the film on its original release date.

Several high profile names took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the news, including actors Jessica Chastain and Patricia Arquette, who have been vocal about the need for gender equality and wage parity in Hollywood.


"She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress", Chastain tweeted on Tuesday. "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", said Williams.

The impressive cinematic feat of Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World" has been undercut yet again by reports that Mark Wahlberg earned a whole lot more money than his costar Michelle Williams during reshoots of the film. Yes, that works out to be less than 1% what her male co-star was paid. Wahlberg's reshoot fee, noting that the actor "along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain". He added that the actors "came in free", and while Plummer "had to get paid", Michelle was not.

Yesterday evening, USA Today broke a story about exactly what that fraction is-1/1,500th-and now people are pissed. "And they could have my salary; they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she told USA Today.

"I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", filmmaker Judd Apatow added.

On Sunday night, Hollywood banded together at the 75th Golden Globes to say Time's Up when it comes to harassment and inequality in the industry.
