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

Wahlberg was named the highest-paid actor of 2017 by Forbes in August, with his pre-tax and pre-fee earnings coming in at $68 million.

Christopher Plummer was roped in to replace Spacey and the veteran actor reshot the scenes barely six weeks before the film's scheduled release. While his co-actor Williams, who volunteered her time giving up a planned cozy Thanksgiving at home, was paid less than $1,000.

In December, Scott told USA Today that all the actors, minus Plummer, "came in free" and agreed to work for nothing.

Williams, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role in "All the Money in the World", notably walked the red carpet with Tarana Burke, senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity and the founder of the #MeToo movement. Scott previously told USA Today that he "refused to get paid" for the reshoots, adding that the actors "did it for nothing".

Williams and Wahlberg are represented by the same talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, a detail that Bush was quick to point on in her tweet.

Michelle Williams earned 99pc less than Mark Wahlberg for film reshoot
Christopher Plummer was chosen as Spacey's replacement, resulting in reshoots of certain scenes. "They all came in for free". This would contradict director Ridley Scott's remarks to USA Today in December that "everyone did it for nothing".

Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage: He was the only major missing piece and the clock was ticking. Portman, for example, said she was paid three times less than her male co-star Ashton Kutcher for the 2011 movie "No Strings Attached". But this is a unusual season in Hollywood, so perhaps it's fitting that the production details for "All The Money in the World" - Ridley Scott's film about J. Paul Getty's reluctance to ransom his grandson after the young man was kidnapped in 1973 - have ended up posing two important questions: What's the right choice to make when two feminist principles seem to be in conflict? The process cost a reported $10 million.

"I thought I would have to raise my daughter to learn how to protect herself in a unsafe world and I think because of the work Tarana has done and the work I am learning how to do, we actually have the opportunity to hand our children a different world", Williams told Ryan Seacrest during a red carpet interview. "It's just been up and down, up and down, and has meant that I've worked every day for the last two months", she explained.

The film made the headlines a year ago when Scott chose to reshoot Kevin Spacey's scenes following allegations of sexual harassment against the actor.

"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. "And I'll give you my Thanksgiving break, if that would help.' And they, to their credit, they only took my Thanksgiving break", Williams said. A source close to production says Sony was not involved in talent pay negotiations.

A still from the movie All the Money in the World. So when Scott called for 10 days of reshoots, Wahlberg had the opportunity to negotiate additional pay.
