Michelle Williams Was Reportedly Paid About $1,000 To Reshoot A Movie While Mark Wahlberg Was Paid $1.5 Million

Williams was reportedly paid an $80 daily per diem to refilm scenes of All the Money in the World, totaling less than $1,000, which would be less than 0.1% of Wahlberg's pay.

People are outraged after USA Today reported that Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to reshoot All the Money in the World, while his costar Michelle Williams was paid a per diem of $80 a day, which amounted to about $1,000.

It was an unprecedented move in November when it was revealed that All the Money in the World, which had starred Kevin Spacey, would be reshot to replace the actor with Christopher Plummer following allegations of sexual assault against Spacey.

But while some voluntarily worked for basically nothing, Wahlberg negotiated a fee of $1.5 million, USA Today reported on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, USA Today reported that Williams was paid an $80 per diem for the reshoot, totaling less than $1,000, which would be less than 0.1% of Wahlberg's fee.

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency — although they likely have a different team of agents, managers, and lawyers, who receive, on average, 10% of an actor's salary to advocate for them.

Still, despite Williams voluntarily working for a minimal fee, the pay disparity was dubbed "shameful" by many.
