The Pay Gap Between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams

A Washington Post report has now claimed that Wahlberg earned $1.5 million, while Williams made less than $ 1,000.

Of course, the most frustrating part of all is both Wahlberg and Williams are represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor.

Earlier this week, USA Today reported that Mark Wahlberg made $1.5 million for the reshoots while co-star Michelle Williams made less than $1,000-and now the newspaper has uncovered additional information on why Wahlberg was paid 1,000 times more than Williams.

According to these sources, "What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them".

The second source, a Hollywood insider, said that Wahlberg's lawyer formally vetoed the Oscar victor in a letter to financiers until his demand for more payment was met. I said, 'Will you come back [and reshoot]?' They said, 'Absolutely.' I said, 'For how much?' They said, 'For free.' Everyone came back for nothing. "I was never, ever paid even a quarter of what the male lead received", Farrow tweeted with a link of the story.

Williams said in multiple interviews while promoting the film that she had agreed to work for free on the reshoot, claiming she felt invigorated to be taking a pro-active stance in the wake of the Spacey allegations while helping Scott save the film. It now appears that the star was able to leverage his clout to hold up production and get his big payday, thanks to a clause in his contract that gave him approval over the casting of his co-stars in the film.

'Everyone did it for nothing, ' he told USA Today.

This new development offers a new wrinkle to the previous reporting about this exorbitant pay gap situation. "I wouldn't get paid, I refused to get paid". "I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he wrote. But Michelle, no. Me, no.

When asked about working with Plummer in the film after Spacey was accused of sexual misconduct, Williams says she was "not talking about that".
