Gender Pay Gap

Mark Wahlberg refused to approve Kevin Spacey's replacement in All The Money unless he was paid $1m

The news comes as the pay gap between Wahlberg and Williams spirals into a war of words over alleged contract disputes.

EARLIER THIS WEEK, it was revealed that Michelle Williams earned 1% of what costar Mark Wahlberg received for re-shooting ‘All The Money’ without Kevin Spacey.

Now, USA Today reports that the actor refused to approve Christopher Plummer as a replacement for Kevin Spacey in All the Money in the World unless he was paid over a million dollars for the reshoot.

Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract, two people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it told the publication.

What he said was, ‘I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.’ And that’s how he (expletive) them,” says one person.

The report comes after Liam Neeson called the gender wage gap “f*cking disgraceful” in an interview.

The Wrap reported Thursday that Wahlberg, who was paid $1.5 million for his All the Money in the World reshoots over the Thanksgiving holiday, did not have reshoots included in his contract and was therefore able to negotiate more pay for his extra time.

The Wrap said Williams’ contract included reshoots, contributing to why she was paid just an $80 per diem for her time. That works out to Williams being paid less than one-tenth of 1% of her male co-star.

Ridley Scott’s Getty kidnapping drama was hastily reshot the week of Thanksgiving after a cascade of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Spacey, who had starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty.
