Actors union investigating Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg pay disparity

The making of Oscar-contending movies doesn't often provide social movements with useful thought experiments.

Our sources say after Wahlberg committed, his reps and the 2 main financiers for the movie had discussions, and his reps said Mark "never" works for free and demanded the money, and made it clear he would not reshoot the scenes unless he got what he was after. And what could happen if we didn't automatically accept that we had to choose?

The new footage was necessary after Christopher Plummer was brought in to the Ridley Scott-directed movie to replace Kevin Spacey, who was sacked amid allegations of past sexual misconduct. "Because all of them, everyone did it for nothing", Scott said.

Fans and Hollywood elite alike were reeling Wednesday after USA Today reported that a hasty reshoot of the thriller earned actor Mark Wahlberg an additional $1.5 million, while his female co-star Williams simply got an $80 per diem, adding up to less than $1,000.

Reshooting a movie is not a logistically easy proposition, nor is it necessarily an cheap one. The second was the idea that actresses (and all women) should negotiate aggressively for equal compensation. "She deserves more than 1% of her male co-star's salary", Ms Chastain tweeted.

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

Williams is incredibly grateful that Matilda couldn't have been more understanding. I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home [for the holidays] and make alternate arrangements for them.

After much digging, it appears that Williams, as well as many other people who worked on the film, took a massive pay cut as a beacon of gratitude for all the work the shots would take under the circumstances.

The Washington Post reported that Wahlberg's team drives "a tough bargain", but it's interesting to note that Williams is repped by the same agency - William Morris Endeavour.

Representatives for Wahlberg and Williams did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

"At the same time, performers at this level negotiate their above-scale rates through their agents". But these are details: Clearly, the reshoots did not actually depend on everyone working for nothing. However, the reports suggested that the reshoots cost over $10 million to the makers.

The problem here isn't that Williams failed to lean in enough.

Plus Wahlberg had reportedly lowered his usual fee considerably in the first place prior to signing up, because he wanted the role.
