In case you somehow missed it, given all the media fallout, USA Today reported this past week that Mark Wahlberg
was paid exorbitantly more than his co-star Michelle Williams
for the reshoots in Ridley Scott's "All the Money In The World." Over the nine-day period, which had Christopher Plummer
reshooting Kevin Spacey's scenes as John Paul Getty III, Wahlberg earned a $1.5 million paycheck. As for Williams? She received a paltry $80 per day in comparison, for a grand total of less than $1000. Three people familiar with the situation, but contractually unable to speak about it, were quoted in the article, which has caused waves around the industry. Who was to blame? We didn't really know until USA Today cracked the case wide open yesterday by saying that it was Wahlberg's greediness that led to the pay gap: "What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer
unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them," a source told the paper.
