Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

As per reports, for the 9-day shoot, the actor was paid Rs 9.5 crore ($1.5 million).

It comes after director Ridley Scott claimed nobody was paid for the re-shoot, in which Christopher Plummer replaced disgraced actor Kevin Spacey. Williams, a multiple Oscar nominee, told the publication that she did indeed agree to that. And his co-star Michelle Williams got a lot less. "Everyone did it for nothing", he said, adding, "I refused to get paid". NBC News was not able to confirm USA Today's report and did not receive a response from Wahlberg, Williams or the agency that represents both of them, William Morris Endeavor. "She deserves more than 1 per cent of her male co-star's salary". But this is a odd season in Hollywood, so perhaps it's fitting that the production details for "All The Money in the World" - Ridley Scott's film about J. Paul Getty's reluctance to ransom his grandson after the young man was kidnapped in 1973 - have ended up posing two important questions: What's the right choice to make when two feminist principles seem to be in conflict?

Scott, who reshot 22 scenes at the cost of $10million, confirmed in an interview with USA Today that all cast members, including Mark Wahlberg -playing the supporting role of an ex-CIA officer- and Michelle Williams -the lead actress - agreed to re-film the scenes for free, out of the goodness of their hearts.

Director Ridley Scott chose to reshoot scenes from "All the Money in the World" that included Kevin Spacey after the Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual harassment and assault.

Wahlberg was named Hollywood's highest paid actor by Forbes a year ago, raking in an estimated $68 million in the publication's 12-month scoring period.

Mohammed al Fayed bought the hotel in 1979 and carried out major renovations to bring it back to its original popularity. The French TV station BFM said that 4.7 million euros (£4.16m) worth of jewels have been taken.

Most contracts with actors include a certain number of reshoot days as a routine stipulation.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of what she was willing to do for the reshoots.

Although several actors with small parts, including Timothy Hutton, had agreed to return for the reshoot for minimum pay, Wahlberg was not one of them, according to the sources. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort". But as soon as they told me about the idea, I said, 'Take whatever you want.'.

Scott, producer-financier of Imperative Entertainment and distributor Sony Pictures, and WME have not commented on the matter. Actors pay a team of agents, managers and lawyers an average of 10% of their salaries to advocate for them.
