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

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. Michelle Williams is an independent film darling, but has not headlined blockbusters like Wahlberg, who has successfully taken over the Transformers franchise and was 2017's highest-paid actor, Forbes reports.

Scott, who reshot 22 scenes at the cost of $10million, confirmed in an interview with USA Today that all cast members, including Mark Wahlberg -playing the supporting role of an ex-CIA officer- and Michelle Williams -the lead actress - agreed to re-film the scenes for free, out of the goodness of their hearts.

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me", one of the sources said.

On Tuesday, USA Today reported that Williams earned less than 1% of Wahlberg's paycheck for the reshoots: Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million; Williams was paid just under $1,000. She tweeted after the Golden Globes, where Williams had been nominated for an award. Scott previously told USA Today that he "refused to get paid" for the reshoots, adding that the actors "did it for nothing". In late October, director Ridley Scott saw disaster looming for his Getty kidnapping drama after one of its three stars, Kevin Spacey, was accused by multiple men of sexual harassment or assault. They also said he wouldn't be part of the reshoots unless he got $1.5 million.

But a person familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it tells USA TODAY that is incorrect.

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. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary", tweetedactress Jessica Chastain.

But with Williams already on board and the clock ticking towards the release date, Wahlberg's representatives knew they had leverage over the production team, both the Times and TMZ said. The problem is that she, her representatives and the producers of "All The Money In The World" all accepted that pulling off that ambitious goal required her to forfeit a salary.

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. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money.

"All the Money in the World" was produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures.
