Mark Wahlberg got $2 million for 'All The Money...' reshoot, but Michelle Williams' pay will stun you

Ridley Scott's decision to re-shoot scenes for All The Money in the World, especially after the Kevin Spacey sexual allegations broke out, was widely considered brave. After all, there have been few in the industry who changed their cast weeks before the film's release.

News broke that Scott's cast members, Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg, had already agreed to re-shoot the scenes with Spacey's replacement, Christopher Plummer in late November.

The 10-day reshoot took place in Rome, Italy and Scott paid an additional amount to the cast. According to The Washington Post, Wahlberg, who plays an ex CIA agent, reportedly earned an estimated amount of $2 million at the end of the 10-day reshoot. In contrast, the female lead earned less than 1 percent of what he got.

The Post article claimed that Williams earned only $80 a day, which sums up to $800. Williams, an Oscar and Golden Globe-nominated actress, had the most screen time on All the Money in the World.

As part of her decision to re-shoot scenes of the film, the actress, who is a single mother, traveled to Italy during Thanksgiving even though she was paid only 0.04% of what her male co-star got paid.

According to Daily Mail, Williams knew the pay gap between her and Wahlberg as the company that represented her handled the actor's account as well.

Jessica Chastain first exposed the disparity in their pay gap on Twitter two days after the Golden Globes, which took place on January 7.

She wrote, "I heard for the reshoot she got $80 a day compared to his MILLIONS. Would anyone like to clarify? I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly. She's a brilliant actress and is wonderful in the film."

While promoting All the Money in the World, Williams said she even offered to work for free as she believed in taking a stance against sexual predators in Hollywood. Nevertheless, it isn't clear if she initially believed that Wahlberg also offered to work for free.

Williams $80 a day is the minimum amount a SAG/AFTRA actor is mandated to be paid for a day of work in Italy. Plummer, who replaced Spacey, and the crew of the film were compensated for working on the re-shoot.

Wahlberg, who earned in seven digits for every day on the set of All the Money in the World, finished last year as Hollywood's highest paid star. He made $67 million in 2016.
