Wahlberg's pay 1500 times more than Williams'

And what could happen if we didn't automatically accept that we had to choose? Britto said it was important to acknowledge that it wasn't clear whether Walhberg or his team negotiated the reshoot salary, and said he shouldn't be portrayed as the "poster child" for pay gaps between the genders.

Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million (Rs 9.5 crore) for the nine-day reshoots conducted for Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World, while his co-star Michelle Williams was paid less than $1000 (Rs 63,000), a new report says.

Imperative Entertainment, the company that produced it, ultimately agreed to US$1.5 million.

Christopher Plummer then replaced the accused child molester as the family patriarch.

Ironically, Mark Wahlberg's co-star, Michelle Williams, was paid according to the Screen Actors Guild guidelines, with a minimum of $80 per day.

The situation with this Money movie strikes a few fraught topics.

Williams seems to have decided that, of these two ideas, the former was more important.

Williams also agreed to work over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight and arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her.

Those arguing Wahlberg's case contend that not only did he take a larger pay cut to do the film in the first place, but when the question of reshoots arose, the actor had more leverage since his name also had been used to secure foreign sales on the film and he also was beginning to shoot a new film, Mile 22.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of the production team at the time.

Representatives for Wahlberg and Williams' agency, WME, did not immediately respond to EW's request for comment, nor did Wahlberg's lawyer.

The salary disparities were reported on by USA Today on Monday and the details were confirmed by three people briefed on the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss private contracts. "I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home (for Thanksgiving) and make alternate arrangements for them", she told Vulture.

USA Today recently claimed the actor, known for driving a tough bargain in Hollywood, received $1.5million for the reshoot.

The problem here isn't that Williams failed to lean in enough.

"The thing with pay inequality is it's one branch on the power tree", she said.

When you are presented with a situation that seems to require sacrifice, it's not selfish to see whether the constraints before you are as binding as they appear. "It's a demand for fair practices". If Williams' agents had asked the producers to guarantee equal pay rates for everyone involved, "All The Money In The World" would have avoided a round of bad press, and Scott and his colleagues would have gotten double credit.

The pay gap, which was first reported by the Washington Post back in November, has got people all riled up, including producer Judd Apatow who said it was "so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe".
