Uproar in Hollywood over Williams-Wahlberg pay gap

Uproar in Hollywood over Williams-Wahlberg pay gap

But in actuality, Wahlberg, who plays Getty's advisor Fletcher Case, and his team negotiated a $1.5-million United States fee, while Williams, who plays the kidnapped grandson's mother, received less than $1,000, according to USA Today, which sources three people not authorized to speak publicly about it. Williams has yet to address the disparity and was unaware her co-star was being paid significantly more.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", she said. She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary.

According to a report from USA Today, Mark Wahlberg was allegedly paid $1.5 million to do re-shoots for All the Money in the World while his co-star Michelle Williams was paid a mere $80 per diem, which totaled less than $1,000.

It was an evening full of inspiring messages and feelings of hopefulness, but only a few days later, we're learning that Williams, like many women in Hollywood and around the world, is continuing to deal with wage gap issues. When The Washington Post first reported that Williams would get "a fraction" of Wahlberg's paycheck, it said that actor and his manager "have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain". Mark Wahlberg's team negotiated the hefty fee for the reshoots, which was then reportedly kept from Michelle Williams.

Busy Phillips called the reports "shameful" and Judd Apatow said it was "so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe". Almost. This is how this business works.

- Jessica Chastain (@jes_chastain) January 10, 2018 This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe. "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane". "It makes me furious that her talent is undervalued in this way". Would anyone like to clarify?

"Please go see Michelle's performance in 'All the Money in the World.' She's a brilliant Oscar-nominated Golden Globe-winning actress", raged an indignant Jessica Chastain on Twitter. I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly.

There has been no official statement released by anyone from the All the Money in the World crew on the matter as of this writing. He said that he and all the actors "came in free" over the Thanksgiving holiday, except for Plummer.

"Exposing the gross disparity in pay & hard evidence of the gender gap- negotiated by the SAME agents no less! - isn't a witch hunt", Bush tweeted.

Wahlberg was named Hollywood's highest paid actor by Forbes past year, raking in an estimated $68 million in the publication's 12-month scoring period.
