No, Mark Wahlberg Didn't Get Paid More Because He's a Man

10 January 2018

Following allegations against Kevin Spacey of sexual misconduct, director Ridley Scott chose to reshoot the entirety of his scenes for the film, casting veteran actor Christopher Plummer as his replacement.

According to USA Today, Mark Wahlberg was reportedly paid $1.5 million for those reshoots while Michelle Williams was only paid...

Christopher Plummer, who replaces Spacey as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty, was paid, as was the crew, the director notes. The newspaper reports that Williams was never notified of the pay disparity.

As the cast was called in for the reshoots - including Michelle Williams as the kidnapped boy's mother - the performers agreed to be paid more modestly for their work, in what the person said was a figure in the hundreds of thousands of dollars or less for Williams, Plummer and other actors.

SCOTT: "No, I wouldn't get paid, I refused to get paid".

Let's also bear in mind that in August, Forbes named Wahlberg the highest-paid actor of the year - saying he banked in $68m (£50m) in their 12-month scoring period, before taxes and fees. Regarding actor fees, Scott added, "They all came in free".

When the reshoots were announced, director and producer Ridley Scott publicly stated that he and the key cast members (not including Plummer) made a decision to forego additional payment for the reshoots.

'I'm so much more interested in what you have to say than what I have to say, ' Williams told reporters about her date on the red carpet. But Michelle, no. Me, no.

'And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

"I heard for the reshoot she got $80 a day compared to his millions", Chastain wrote, referring to the nine days Williams and Wahlberg returned to the production to reshoot scenes with Christopher Plummer, who stepped in to replace Kevin Spacey, just weeks before the film's release.

It seems however that the celebration may have been a bit premature, because while the film may have rid itself of an alleged serial predator, new reports claim that there was a staggering difference in the amount of money Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams made for that 10-day shoot.
