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

Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg in All the Money in the World Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to reshoot scenes after Kevin Spacey was dropped while Williams was paid less than $1,000

That works out to Williams being paid less than one-tenth of 1% of her male co-star.

USA Today reports that three sources confirmed Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million Dollars for reshooting, while Williams was paid an $80 per diem totalling less than $1,000. Sony, which is distributing the film in the USA, was not involved in the negotiations to bring back the cast and crew for the added reshoots. Ironically, both Michelle and Mark are represented by officials from the same talent agency, William Morris Endeavor.

The second reason Williams walked away with what amounted to almost $80 a day for reshoots is that, because Wahlberg's contract didn't necessitate reshoots, he was able to renegotiate his pay for them.

Female celebrities also slammed the unjust pay distribution.

"Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World". It seems there was little-to-no communication about each actor's deal between the agents (apparently this is normal), and if there was, they did a much better job representing Wahlberg, their male star, over Williams.

The director Judd Apatow wrote, "This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe".

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", says one person.

Emma Stone, the highest paid actress, took home an estimated US$26 million. The ceremony was fashioned into a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative started to gender inequality and sexual harassment in Hollywood and other industries.

Williams walked the red carpet with Tarana Burke, founder of the #metoo movement. Reshoots are complicated in production, based on matters like contract days and talent's willingness to participate. When it was quickly decided that Imperative Entertainment was going to finance reshoots (Sony did not finance) after Plummer replaced Spacey, Wahlberg was already working on his next project Mile 22. "She has been in the industry for 20 yrs". If Williams' agents had asked the producers to guarantee equal pay rates for everyone involved, "All The Money In The World" would have avoided a round of bad press, and Scott and his colleagues would have gotten double credit.

In previous interviews, Williams indicated she was willing to earn just the per diem or waive her salary to save the film. It's been alternately written that neither Williams nor Wahlberg had reshoot clauses in their contracts, and also that Williams's contract contained that clause while Wahberg's didn't - which would free Wahlberg up to negotiate for more money, while Williams wouldn't have such leeway. The film was set to be released on Dec 25.
