Shocking claim about Michelle Williams' pay for movie reshoot

Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg in All The Money In The World

The film was caught up in the Kevin Spacey scandal just weeks before its Christmas release, but instead of delaying the release, director Ridley Scott chose to recast Spacey with Christopher Plummer, which required intense reshoots.

According to a tweet from actress Jessica Chastain, Williams reportedly made only $80 per day for the 10-day reshoot, as compared to Wahlberg's $2 million reshoot price tag. But that hasn't stopped several of Williams's friends and colleagues from speaking out and sharing their outrage about the reported pay disparity on Twitter.

Representatives for William Morris Endeavor, Sony Pictures, Ridley Scott, Wahlberg, and Williams, did not immediately respond to requests from TheWrap for comment.

Whereas Williams - who's repped by the same agency as Wahlberg - publicly stated that she'd be happy to wave her fee because she was so grateful the film was taking a stand against alleged sexual assault of minors.

Michelle Williams earned less than $1,000 dollars for her work during reshoots on Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World", while her co-star Mark Wahlberg earned around $1.5 million, USA Today reported on Tuesday.

"Because all of them, everyone did it for nothing", Scott said.


Williams previously told USA Today that she agreed to inconvenience herself to reshoot Spacey's scenes out of appreciation for Scott's decision to cut an abuser.

He later went on: 'No, they all came in free. "I hated that this man's time and expertise and gentlemanly-ness was going to be kind of for naught". And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. So when I got the phone call about the change of plans I was thrilled. I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane.

If the reports are true, Williams received less than 1-percent of Wahlberg's pay for the additional work. "I was enlivened, it picked me up off the couch a little bit and got me excited".

It is not clear however if Williams initially believed that Wahlberg was also working for free.

But the salary discrepancy was a much talked about issue after the Globes thanks to a tweet from Melissa Silverstein, the founder of Women and Hollywood. Whether Wahlberg himself was involved with that isn't clear, but Michelle Williams was apparently not told that Wahlberg was getting paid that amount.
