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

SAG-AFTRA Looking Into 'All The Money In The World' Pay Disparity Claims Michelle Williams was paid over thousand times lesser than Mark Wahlberg for “All the Money in the World”

Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million (Rs 9.5 crore) for the nine-day reshoots conducted for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World, while his co-star Michelle Williams was paid less than $1000 (Rs 63,000), a new report says.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Williams was paid less than $1,000 for the re-shoot, while Wahlberg made $1.5 million.

Again as is typical, the main woman involved - Williams - realized what she needed to do to help salvage the project.

But USA Today now claims that "Wahlberg's team negotiated a hefty fee" for the reshoot, while Williams, who is represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor (WME), wasn't told about it.

Because of the circumstances, Williams quickly agreed to return.

However, the crucial aspect of payment for the reshoots, which cost a reported $10 million in all, appear to be written into the actors' contracts, which go some way to explaining the pay disparity. "She has been in the industry for 20 yrs".

The USA Today report suggests that Williams was not told that Wahlberg's team had negotiated a deal.

Both Williams and Wahlberg earned a daily per diem of $80.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of what she was willing to do for the reshoots.

The disclosure of specific salary details also came just after Sunday's Golden Globes, which was a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative to end sexual harassment and gender inequality in Hollywood and other industries.

Scott managed to assemble his cast and crew on short notice during the Christmas period, successfully reshooting and re-editing the film in time to meet its original release date.

Williams reiterated: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". "It's just been such a odd saga of highs and lows and ups and downs", continued the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film. "I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home (for Thanksgiving) and make alternate arrangements for them", she told Vulture.

All the Money in the World is based on the real-life kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III and his mother Gail (Williams) attempt to convince his billionaire grandfather (Plummer) to pay the ransom.

Neither Wahlberg nor Williams nor co-star Timothy Hutton had reshoot clauses built into their contracts.

UPDATE (1/11, 11:45 p.m. EST): Following the report from USA Today, the film actors labour union SAG-AFTRA (Screen Actors Guild‐American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) is now investigating whether the film broke any of the union's contract rules, Deadline reports.
