Why Mark Wahlberg Got "All the Money" Pay Bump Over Michelle Williams

Mark Wahlberg paid millions for 'All the Money in the World' reshoots while Michelle Williams got less than $1000

The film originally had Kevin Spacey as billionaire J. Paul Getty, but director Ridley Scott dropped Spacey from the movie after multiple men came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct and recast Plummer in the role.

Meanwhile, details over the staggering pay disparity on the reshoot of of the film caused waves earlier in the day, when it was revealed that Wahlberg earned an additional $1.5million for the work after his representatives declared that he never works for free - while his co-star Michelle Williams was offered less than $1,000 for her troubles.

A different insider divulged Mark's lawyer actually went so far as to formally veto Plummer's appearance in a letter to the movie's financiers to push the demand for the pay bump.

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", the source said.

Mark Walhberg did not return Fox News' request for comment.

Scott replaced Spacey with Christopher Plummer and re-shot the scenes just six weeks before the film's release.

Let's not forget, it was Williams who walked away from the film with a Golden Globe nomination.

Although Wahlberg is yet to respond to the latest reports, they come after it was reported that Michelle Williams was paid less than $1,000 (£730) for the reshoot. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary", Chastain added.

Wahlberg's reps and his talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, did not comment on the story.

This has sparked a debate regarding the gender pay gap, especially since both Wahlberg and Williams are represented by the same agency.

Both Scott and Williams have spoken about doing the reshoot for free, with Williams telling USA Today last month that she would even give up her Thanksgiving holiday for the reshoots.

'Everyone did it for nothing, ' he told USA Today. "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he wrote.
