Michelle Williams Made Less Than 1% of What Mark Wahlberg Did on 'All the Money in the World' Reshoots (Report)

Michelle Williams Made Less Than 1% of What Mark Wahlberg Did on 'All the Money in the World' Reshoots (Report)

After Jessica Chastain spoke out about rumors of a massive pay disparity between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams for the All the Money in the World reshoots, an investigation was launched and more details have been revealed.

If you don’t know, the film went into reshoots in November after the original star, Kevin Spacey had multiple allegations of sexual misconduct come to light. Christopher Plummer replaced him and reshoots were quickly pulled off ahead of the film’s December release date.

It turns out, Mark was allegedly paid $1.5 million for his work during reshoots, while Michelle was paid an $80 per diem totaling less than $1,000 for her work, USA Today reports. The numbers work out to Michelle earning less than 1% of what Mark earned for the same work. This information was brought to the publication by “three people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it.”

    Suprised yet not suprised. Mark was definitely not working for next to nothing or free. But that’s cool cuz the true star was Michelle. She consistently delivers great performances. Her body of work/films/tv will continue to speak for itself.

  • j.

    That is INSANE

  • Jaclyn Shortt

    It seems the director was under the impression they all took a massive cut/ didn’t get paid at all for the reshoot. Shady AF for Michelle’s representation to be okay with her getting nothing, particularly knowing Walburg and her are both repped by the same company.

  • moody

    Mark is a power player in Hollywood – actor, producer. Michelle is not and she’s not a box office draw.

  • Curt Noydb

    Guess we know who has the better agent? Who negotiated on her behalf? Based on the info available, that comes out to $10/hr.

  • MsCarol

    Michelle is an accomplished, awarded and 4 times Oscar nominated actress. Mark Whatever is that guy form the transformes movies that blinded a vietnamese guy by bashing his face in.

  • Lisa

    moody, But is Mark a box office draw? He is not that talented.

  • patrickdornoff

    whos more well known mark is

  • Lisa

    It depends who you ask. Mark is still fug maybe you like him.

    It doesn’t matter. Mark is the power player. A lot of people don’t even know who Michelle is. I’m not saying it’s right or wrong, but bigger names get bigger salaries.

  • MsCarol

    well, I’m saying it’s wrong. She is a better actress and she should be earning more.

  • MsCarol

    a bunch of actors are more well known than Mark, are you serious? he’s not even relevant outside of the USA.

  • moody

    That’s irrelevant.

  • cafeast

    So Marky Mark has much better representation, and Michelle Williams is only famous for being Heath’s ex cum dumpster so doesn’t deserve more than peanuts???

  • cafeast

    Oscar noms mean nothing. Box office numbers count and matter. Marky Mark is a huge name in Hwood, whether we like it or not and he gets rep-ed accordingly.

  • Casey C

    they’re repped by the same people

  • Casey C

    actually he isn’t – last year the amount he was paid in comparison to the amount he brought in made him the MOST overpaid actor in hollywood. he isn’t a draw.

  • moody

    But he’s a known commodity and a very successful producer. That’s all I’m saying. I’m not a fan of his and haven’t seen many of his movies. Michelle, however, is overrated.

  • Casey C

    but your arguement stems around that he’s a box-office draw and gets people into his movies when it’s proven that he doesn’t. almost every film he was in last year flopped or BARELY broke even. thus he’s not a draw and isn’t worth what he’s paid. Williams however draws far greater critical acclaim which makes a movie look good and is a 4 time oscar nomineee which does increase your salary.

    Whatever opinion people have of about Mark should be separate from the fact that this is a business and her reps are responsible to look out for her; which is this case, it didn’t happen.

    Why is Mark being dragged into this mess, I’m no big fan by no means; maybe her reps should be reminded of her value and she should rethink who’s she’s paying to represent her..

  • M9365

    She needs new reps. I do wonder what she actually had to do for reshoots compared to Mark. If this is as bad as it sounds, her reps are pathetic. If production needed her for reshoots, it’s not like they would have had time to replace her too since she has a main role. Her reps had the powder here to demand more or not agree to reshoots.

  • Damian

    Yeah this should not be a Mark vs. Michelle thing, or even the director. But a studio and agency thing, why did the studio think it was ok to pay her so much less and why was the agency that represents both of them ok with it knowing the difference being offered.

  • Sansa Squad

    Because the director has publicly talked about how they all did the reshoots for basically free, so he KNOWS no one else got paid and still didn’t see anything wrong with it. Taking the money and staying quiet about it (AND in doing so taking credit for everyone else’s selflessness when he knows damn well he didn’t do it for free) is sh*tty. Once he knew no one else was getting paid and he was making so much, the right thing to do would’ve been offer to take a pay cut in order to pay everyone a little more, but he didn’t do that. I mean, for all we know, the studio HAD to pay everyone else pennies to afford to get Wahlberg to come back, and that’s not right. It’s absolutely a studio-agency issue but he deserves every bit of criticism he gets.

  • moody

    Well some of his movies apparently do make money and most of Michelle’s don’t. Getting nominated for an Oscar doesn’t get you a big bump in salary, getting one does. Or be in a huge hit movie like Gal Gadot and Jennifer Lawrence.

  • http://www.paulwalkerfoundation.org RayonLight

    This is a business, it’s Hollywood, and Mark is a business man.

  • Kris

    Hollywood did it again. Pretends to be shocked.

  • Cruizin1960

    Perhaps before everyone gets all upset about this some questions should be asked….what was in each contract about reshoots…was the amount paid dependent on whether the actors were currently filming another movie…most importantly, why would you pay Williams the same as Wahlberg in first place? His average box office is over $70M and hers is a mere $27M. If you want the bigger bucks…bring in a bigger box office.

  • 777

    They have the same representation

  • 777

    What I read was that she refused to get paid for it because she wanted the reshoots to finish on time. She didn’t want to take advantage of the situation.
    Mark took advantage of the situation.
    As for the people talking about her getting a better agent, they’re both represented by the same agency.

  • Lili

    Wow not even half or a third

  • http://www.paulwalkerfoundation.org RayonLight

    This is being seen as a “gender equality” issue as oppose to what it really is; a business transaction.

  • Frank Brown

    Did Michelle also agree to her salary, before she knew what Mark was getting?

  • moody

    I don’t really care. It’s her and her agent’s problem, not anyone else’s. all these loudmouths should butt out.

  • cafeast

    then she betta start twerking b/c she needs them dolla bills rain down on her oiled up ass cheeks.

  • Péter PHorváth

    salary is something you get for the actual work you performed. Marc and michelle performed the same amount of work, therefore they shouls be compensated/paid equally.
    if the producers think “marc is a power player” or is a better surface for in-movie advertising of product therefore generates more profit via the film, then this capacity of his should be compensated / rewarded otherwise, but not in the salary or as the salary.

  • moody

    well it isn’t up to you and it’s really none of our business. all this huffing and puffing…everyone needs to take a deep breath and STFU

  • Sansa Squad

    Sure, but it’s a business built on personal relationships and reputations. If he wants to do things like this, that’s his prerogative, but his reputation will (and should) suffer.

  • GroundControl500

    Of course Oscar noms mean something. The prestige such actors bring to a film production is worth money.

    But this seems to have been about something else.

  • GroundControl500

    Film backers know who she is and her type of pedigree can bring in financiers. Many producers want respected actors attached to sell their projects.

  • cafeast

    Marky Mark has also been nominated. Besides, Octavia Spencer has an oscar, who is killing themselves to see her movie just because she is in them? Or Jennifer hudson? Or Jean dujardin?

  • GroundControl500

    I didn’t say it was about the audience. I said it was about the financial backers and producers who are also interested in other things from time to time like their films being taken seriously, like awards potential (which does help with BO and other revenue streams).

    But why did you choose those examples? How about Meryl Streep, Kate Winslet, Cate Blanchett?

  • GroundControl500

    So do we all finally know that Michelle’s contract included reshoots and Mark’s did not. Simple as that.

    Nobody sees a Cate Blanchett movie b/c she has an Oscar or two. They watch it if it is good. Thor’s BO did not benefit from her Oscars. And Kate Winslet? What was her last film that made any money?
