  Mark Walhberg knew he was paid 1,000 times more than Michelle Williams for 'All the Money' reshoots, report says Mark Wahlberg didn't get all the money in the world, but he got a lot. And his co-star Michelle Williams got a lot less. Wahlberg received $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes in “All the Money in the World,” the film about the Getty kidnapping case, while Williams received less than $1,000, a report said Tuesday.Three people not authorized to speak publicly about the matter told USA Today that Williams was being paid an $80 per diem, which amounted to less than 1 percent of her male co-star's pay.

Actress Michelle Williams was reportedly paid less than 1% of co-star Mark Wahlberg 's salary for a 10-day re-shoot on "All the Money in the World." It comes after director Ridley Scott claimed nobody was paid for the re-shoot, in wh

Mark Wahlberg . Pay Equality. SCOTT : “No, they all came in free. Christopher had to get paid . But Michelle , no. Me, no. His co-star, Williams , was reportedly paid less than 00. In other words, Wahlberg got all the money in the world, and Williams got, like, a pretty lame stipend.

Director Ridley Scott reportedly didn't know that Mark Wahlberg was pocketing millions of dollars for the "All The Money in the World" reshoots. He feels angry and "hung out to dry" about being in the dark, especially considering the pay discrepancy between the film's two stars.

TMZ reported that Mark had producers "over a barrel" and demanded $1.5 million for the 10-day reshoot, which was necessary after Kevin Spacey was booted from the film and replaced with Christopher Plummer. The Washington Post reported that Mark actually made $2 million for the reshoots.

The website indicated that Michelle Williams was the first person approached by producers -- not Ridley -- about reshoots after Kevin's ouster. She immediately agreed and said she'd basically do it for free. She was reportedly paid $80 a day, which was the per diem.

Why Mark Wahlberg Got ‘All the Money in the World’ for Reshoots and Michelle Williams Didn’t

  Why Mark Wahlberg Got ‘All the Money in the World’ for Reshoots and Michelle Williams Didn’t It may look like obvious sexism, but it's complicated.Mark Wahlberg received $1.5 million to take part in reshoots for "All the Money in the World," while Michelle Williams got next to nothing. And while that strikes many as a clear-case of sexism, it just comes down to their contracts, TheWrap has learned.

Mark Wahlberg was reportedly paid 1500 times what Michelle Williams was to reshoot the Ridley Scott film, All the Money in the World, according to reports from USA Today and the Washington Post.

Both Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams are repped by WME in Hollywood. In addition, TMZ is also reporting that Michelle Williams was actually approached before Ridley Scott about the possibility of reshooting before the director was even asked.

Ridley then flew to London to approach Mark about reshooting scenes for the film, which he agreed to do, but there was reportedly no mention of money. After that, though, Mark's people went to work on compensation.

TMZ said that his reps and the two primary financiers for the movie had discussions, and Mark reps said the actor "never" works for free. The financiers very quickly found out that Mark would not be giving any kind of discount for the reshoots. The money people -- aka, the producers -- had no choice but to give him what he wanted, otherwise the film would likely never be released, or it would have to be filmed all over again with new actors, which is particularly costly.

Michelle Williams reportedly paid less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg 's fee for 'All The Money' reshoot. Pay discrepancies are sadly nothing new in the entertainment business, or anywhere really, but they rarely get this egregious.

Mark Wahlberg was reportedly paid .5 million to reshoot his All The Money In The World scenes. Michelle Williams reportedly was paid less than ,000. That is just 1 percent of Wahlberg 's paycheck.

Ridley, according to TMZ, was never in on the money discussions, which is not uncommon, and was under the the understanding that the actors were all reshooting for free or the per diem. He's even quoted as saying that actors all did the reshoots for free, because that's the information he had. Ridley feels "betrayed and angry," the report said.

Hollywood has been up in arms all week after hearing about the massive pay discrepancy between Michelle and Mark. Interestingly, both are represented by the same agency, so it's highly likely that several people knew of the pay difference.
