Wahlberg refused to work with Plummer until he was paid $1 mn

Michelle Williams

The controversy over Michelle Williams earning 1% of Mark Wahlberg's salary for reshoots of All the Money in the World has continued, with Wahlberg accused of threatening to block the casting of Christopher Plummer unless he received a reshoot salary of $1.5 million. The apparent wage gap sparked outrage, especially at a time when everyone is looking to Hollywood to lead the fight against sexism.

The film originally had Kevin Spacey as billionaire J. Paul Getty, but director Ridley Scott dropped Spacey from the movie after multiple men came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct and recast Plummer in the role. But Wahlberg, who had "costar approval" in his contract, not only chose to profit off Spacey's alleged history of preying on underage boys, he reportedly took things a step further and refused to sign off on veteran actor Christopher Plummer replacing Spacey in the film unless he was paid a handsome sum, USA Today reports.

"What he said was, "I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me", usatoday.com quoted a source as saying.

Williams, who attended this week's Golden Globes with #MeToo movement founder Tarana Burke as her guest, previously told USA Today that she would do whatever she could to help with the reshoot. "Because all of them, everyone did it for nothing", Scott toldUSA Today in December.

Pay discrepancies are sadly nothing new in the entertainment business, or anywhere really, but they rarely get this egregious.

Another Hollywood insider says Wahlberg's lawyer formally vetoed the Oscar victor in a letter to financiers until his demand for additional payment was met.

And an additional source contradicted other reports that Wahlberg's contract did not include reshoots, while Williams did, and that his reshoots were more extensive.

Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by the same talent agency, WME.

The report states that Wahlberg's team negotiated a substantial fee for the reshoot, while Williams wasn't told about the deal.
