The Pay Gap Between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams

Mark Wahlberg wouldn't approve Christopher Plummer unless he got paid $1.5 million for reshoots Mark Wahlberg reportedly refused to approve Christopher Plummer without $1 million pay check

Producers for the movie decided on last-second reshoots in November, replacing Academy Award-winner Kevin Spacey with fellow Oscar victor Christopher Plummer after Hollywood's sexual harassment and assault scandal consumed Spacey, the newspaper stated.

Insider sources told USA Today that Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract, allowing Wahlberg's lawyer to formally veto Plummer's casting unless his demands for additional pay were met.

A source claimed: "What [Wahlberg] said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he f-- them".

"I do want to say thank you to the producers for paying Niecy and I the same amount of money and Mark Wahlberg $1 million", Munn said.

Earlier reports from The Wrap claimed the disparity existed because reshoots weren't included in Wahlberg's contract, giving him room to negotiate more pay for his extra time, but the USA Today source disputes these claims, saying that both stars had reshoots in their contracts.

Analyst Ratings Buzz: JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), Texas Instruments Inc. (TXN)
The Stock now has Analyst' mean Recommendation of 2.5 where the scale is from 1 to 5, 1 means Strong Buy and 5 means Sell. JPMorgan Chase also said it lost $143 million on a margin loan to one client. (NYSE: JPM ) was sold by Friedman Stacey .

The report arrives days after USA Today revealed that Wahlberg received $1.5 million for the reshoot while the film's leading actress Michelle Williams only received an $80 per diem.

Wahlberg and his co-star Michelle Williams are both represented by the same agency, but his hardball tactics are in contrast to her approach.

The actress, who plays the kidnapped boy's mother in the film, previously told the newspaper about her reaction when director Ridley Scott's team called her to return to the set during Thanksgiving: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

This means that the single mother traveled to Italy in late November for a last-second reshoot while being paid 0.05 per cent what her male co-star was making for his work.

This just sheds so much light on how these costars ended up getting paid so differently - but we have yet to hear directly from either actor about the massive gap. Did they think this wouldn't come out?
