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

TMZ has also reported that Wahlberg had producers of "All the Money" "over a barrel" when he demand $1.5 million to reshoot scenes from the movie last month.

And Williams - who has 12-year-old daughter Matilda with late ex-partner Heath Ledger - was only too happy to give up her Thanksgiving holiday and work for free on the reshoots because she'd anxious the project would be "flushed down the toilet" following the accusations against Spacey. But many have expressed outrage that the financier and/or studio didn't feel a moral responsibility to pay Williams a proportionate sum.

In any case, in a December interview with USA Today, Williams recounted that when the idea of the reshoots arose, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". "I refused to get paid", Scott said, but "Christopher had to get paid, but Michelle, no". And his co-star Michelle Williams got a lot less.

"She has been in the industry for 20 yrs", actress Jessica Chastain wrote on Twitter of Williams, a four-time Oscar nominee.

A pay gap scandal has erupted over the "All the Money in the World" reshoots.

The kidnapping drama directed by Ridley Scott was hastily reshot in November after a series of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Kevin Spacey, who previously starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty. Wahlberg's agent Ari Emanuel - the person that Jeremy Piven's character of Entourage was based upon, which was by the way produced by Wahlberg - was in part able to grant his client this advantage because the actor reportedly initially signed up to do the film at a pay cut to add prestige to his résumé. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary".

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by WME.

Hollywood has been left rocked after reports of a significant pay gap between the male and female stars of All The Money In The World, during the reshoots without Kevin Spacey. Or perhaps it was the decision of a team seizing any convenience as they sought to reshoot a movie on an astonishingly tight schedule.

"The thing with pay inequality is it's one branch on the power tree", she said.

Wahlberg had earlier agreed to take about 80 percent of his usual quote - which is in the $15 million range - to appear in the film.

What's alarming and preposterous about this revelation is that Williams is a markedly more gifted and critically recognized film presence than Wahlberg, who hasn't even given a noteworthy acting performance in his career.

Spokesmen for Imperative, William Morris Endeavor and Sony Pictures, which distributed "All the Money in the World", declined to comment for this article.
