Michelle Williams reportedly earned about 1 per cent of Mark Wahlberg's salary during reshoots for All the Money in the World.

SAG-AFTRA is looking into reports that Michelle Williams was paid peanuts compared to Mark Wahlberg to re-shoot scenes in All the Money in the World. Now the oil family drama is back in the news for another shocking casting dispute, this one revolving around Mark Wahlberg and Michele Williams' pay checks.

Scott told USA Today last month that the reshoot was made possible because nobody but Plummer and the crew got paid.

Scott, in interviews promoting All the Money in the World, claimed that he and the cast worked for free because they believed it was important to reshoot scenes in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Spacey and other Hollywood figures since October. In 2017, Wahlberg beat out Dwayne Johnson to become Hollywood's highest-paid actor, with income of $68 million, according to Forbes magazine.

Reps for Wahlberg, Williams and Scott did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

"All the Money in the World" was nominated for three Golden Globe Awards, including a best actress nod for Williams and best supporting actor for Plummer.

Williams told USAToday in December, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".




Although several actors with small parts, including Timothy Hutton, had agreed to return for reshoots for minimum pay, Mr. Wahlberg was not one of them, according to the people briefed on the negotiations.

A report in USA Today claims Wahlberg's team negotiated the fee after studio officials chose to remove Kevin Spacey from the film following accusations of sexual misconduct.

Wahlberg's team negotiated for the hefty fee, while Williams did it for "nothing", as did director Ridley Scott. This just happened. Hollywood needs to change. I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly. "And they could have my salary; they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she told USA Today. He had the ability to negotiate since he already had taken a pay cut.

Movie producer Judd Apatow called the claims "messed up". and added: 'I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane'.

The film, which was released in time for Christmas, was heralded as a triumph for the director, who was able to seamlessly remove Spacey from it without affecting the bottom line.

USA Today says Scott, 80, told the paper "all of them, everyone did it for nothing".
