USA Today‘s Andrea Mandell just reported that Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes in Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World over a nine-day period, but costar Michelle Williams was basically paid zip — an $80 per day per diem for a total of less than $1000.
Mandell quoted “three people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it.”

The pay disparity wouldn’t appear to be any fault of Wahlberg’s, although this looks a lot like classic payroll sexism. Nor was it Scott’s doing, I’m guessing. (Although I know nothing.) The drop-the-ball person in this equation is Williams’ agent, whose name escapes at the moment. In 2014 Williams left CAA for William Morris Endeavor. Maybe Williams was just trying to help by not being grasping, but why would the person in charge agree to pay Wahlberg $1.5 million if she agreed to do it for nothing?
The ATMITW re-shoot happened in Rome and London between 11.20 and 11.29, or less than a couple of months ago.
