While actor Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million, actress
Michelle Williams reportedly got less than $1,000 for their "All the Money in
the World" re-shoots.
Williams was paid an $80 per day, totaling less than $1000, while Wahlberg received $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes in the Ridley Scott-directed biopic, reports usatoday.com.
In November last year, The Washington Post reported that Wahlberg was paid at least $2 million for ten days of work.
Scott underwent reshoots on the film about the kidnapping of John Paul Getty III after actor Christopher Plummer was hired to replace actor Kevin Spacey, who was dropped from the film following accusations of sexual misconduct by a number of men.
Scott had said in December that the reshoots, which reportedly cost $10 million, were possible because "everyone did them for nothing."
The four-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker revealed that "they all came in free" and that "Christopher had to get paid. But Michelle, no. Me, no."
On Tuesday, Williams' close friend Busy Philipps took to Twitter and said: "Unacceptable to say the least. Shameful is correct."
Williams' fellow actress and member of the Time's Up movement, Jessica Chastain, also expressed her disappointment over the pay gap.
