Celebrities React to Michelle Williams' Pay Disparity with Mark Wahlberg

Celebrities React to Michelle Williams' Pay Disparity with Mark Wahlberg

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.

"She has been in the industry for 20 years". The information comes from "three people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly", according to the paper.

Williams has been nominated for an Academy Award four times and has five Golden Globe nominations, while Wahlberg has yet to receive a similar nod from either organization.

Actress and activist Amber Tamblyn described the reported pay gap as "totally unacceptable" while veteran producer Judd Apatow said it was "so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe".

Director Ridley Scott chose to reshoot scenes from "All the Money in the World" that included Kevin Spacey after the Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual harassment and assault.

"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.

Representatives for Wahlberg and Williams did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

"All the Money in the World" was produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures.

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

Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the alleged incident, but apologized for what he said would have been "inappropriate drunken behavior".

After Kevin Spacey was ousted from the film All the Money in the World following sexual misconduct allegations, his role was recast with Christopher Plummer, and the cast and crew rushed to reshoot scenes over 10 days to meet the movie's original Christmas release date. In response to the USA Today report that Wahlberg had actually done it for millions, some fans said that Williams' lack of pay in comparison was because she was a woman. Scott told the newspaper then, "Everyone did it for nothing".

Williams previously told USA Today she appreciated efforts to reshoot the film, which recounts the kidnapping of oil tycoon J. Paul Getty's grandson, adding that "they could have my salary". "It makes me furious that her talent is undervalued in this way".

The reshoots, which took place in late November, reportedly cost $10 million, and in December Scott told USA Today that the budget was "expensive but not as expensive as you think" because "everyone did it for nothing".
