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

Mark Wahlberg reportedly held up production on "All the Money in the World" reshoots until he got his $1.5 million payday.

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. "And I'll give you my Thanksgiving break, if that would help.' And they, to their credit, they only took my Thanksgiving break", Williams said. But many have expressed outrage that the financier and/or studio didn't feel a moral responsibility to pay Williams a proportionate sum.

Both performers are with William Morris Endeavor - although each is repped by separate agents there - which has only fueled the perception of injustice.

Williams previously told USA TODAY that when Scott's team called to request her time for the reshoot, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".




Citing an unnamed source, who was apparently familiar with the pay negotiations, the Washington Post revealed in November that Wahlberg was paid $2million for the shoot. Portman, for example, said she was paid three times less than her male co-star Ashton Kutcher for the 2011 movie "No Strings Attached". She tweeted after the Golden Globes, where Williams had been nominated for an award.

Director Ridley Scott partially re-shot his latest movie after Kevin Spacey was sacked because of sexual misconduct allegations, with both Wahlberg and Williams called back to act opposite Spacey's replacement Christopher Plummer. Of the $10 million that Imperative Entertainment kicked in to finance the reshoots, 15 percent went to Wahlberg.

It's also unclear whether or not Williams knew that Wahlberg hadn't yet committed to the reshoots when she agreed to participate. Plummer was brought in to replace Spacey following sexual misconduct allegations late a year ago. As Wahlberg had more scenes with Plummer, he had more scenes in general to reshoot (though we're sure not 1,000 more scenes than Williams).

The publication also claims that before any of the reshoots had been scheduled, Wahlberg's eagerness to work with director Ridley Scott had seen him take an 80 per cent pay cut on his usual salary of $US15 million (or more) per movie. Williams, who has been heralded as a blinding talent for her portrayals in films such as Blue Valentine, My Week With Marilyn and Manchester By The Sea. "Everyone did it for nothing", he said, adding, "I refused to get paid". She even declined to be paid an additional salary. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money.
