Michelle Williams Made Less Than One Percent Of Costar Mark Wahlberg’s Salary
When news of Kevin Spacey’s sexual misconduct allegations surfaced, producers were quick to recast the drama All The Money In The World with Christopher Plummer. With that new venture, came bringing in the rest of the cast to reshoot the scenes, including with Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.
Apparently, reports are now saying that Michelle Williams made less than one percent of what Mark made.
USA Today reports that Wahlberg, who played Getty’s negotiator in the film, was paid $1.5 million to reshoot the scenes that replaced Spacey with Plummer, while Williams, who played the mother of Getty’s kidnapped grandson, was paid a $80 per diem per day, which came to less than $1,000 to do the reshoots.
The idea to shoot for free (apart from the per diem) was a conscious decision. The information came from an interview USA Today did with director Ridley Scott, who said he nor any of his actors were paid to do the reshoots, which he says totaled $10 million dollars. Plummer was paid, naturally, because this was his first go-round on the film.
