Uproar in Hollywood over Williams-Wahlberg pay gap

Uproar in Hollywood over Williams-Wahlberg pay gap

Mark Wahlberg was reportedly paid $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes, while his costar Michelle Williams received $80 per day-less than $1,000 in total-USA Today reports.

That's the claim from USA Today, who report that Williams was paid less than 1% of her male co-star's fee for the reshoots, and wasn't informed of the move. Wahlberg's people made sure their guy was going to get paid because he's in demand. But the film ended up being recognized by many for Scott's ability to complete the reshoots in nine to ten days, and still release the film on its original release date.

Let's also bear in mind that in August, Forbes named Wahlberg the highest-paid actor of the year - saying he banked in $68m (£50m) in their 12-month scoring period, before taxes and fees.

At Sunday's Golden Globes - where All the Money in the World came home empty-handed despite three nominations - male and female actors wore black to highlight sexual misconduct and also to promote gender parity.

The film "All the Money in the World" didn't live up to its title when it comes to paying actress Michelle Williams - an uncomfortable revelation at a time when Hollywood is still finding its footing with fair treatment of women, experts say.

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".

In 2016, 15.5% of the adults from the United Kingdom smoked, down from 19.9% in 2010, according to the office for National Statistics.

Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency.

"Everyone did it for nothing", he told the same publication in December. I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly. That means Williams made less than 0.1 percent of Wahlberg's salary for the reshoot. Scott said he and Williams refused to get paid and that he only needed to pay Plummer and the crew.

The Washington Post reported in November the pay disparity for the reshoot and noted that "Wahlberg, along with manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain".

"I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he tweeted.

News of the massive pay gap has left some in Hollywood reeling - and ranting - about the "shameful", "messed up" and "outrageously unfair" situation.

The ceremony highlighted the Time's Up initiative, which seeks to take action on sexual harassment and inequality in the workplace.
