Michelle Williams earned only $1000 for reshoot after Spacey was dropped

Posted January 12, 2018

According to a report published this week by USA Today, actress Michelle Williams was paid less than one-tenth of one percent of her male co-star, Mark Wahlberg to re-shoot scenes in the movie after actor Kevin Spacey's scenes were removed from the film.

Director Ridley Scott chose to cut Spacey from the completed Getty family kidnapping drama after he was accused of sexual misconduct and inappropriate behaviour, and he called on Christopher Plummer to step in and play billionaire J. Paul Getty.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to re-shoot scenes with Plummer, and that Williams was only paid her per diem - less than $1,000.

Jessica Chastain, the actress, said: "Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World". Director Ridley Scott made the decision to recast his role with Christopher Plummer and complete filming to make the movie's December 22 release date, which at that point was approximately a month away.

Judd Apatow, a director, tweeted: "This is so..."

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

Gemini, Apollo, and Space Shuttle astronaut John Young has passed away
He was the first of his group to fly in space: He and Mercury astronaut Gus Grissom made the first manned Gemini mission in 1965. That mission in 1981 was the first time NASA sent a vehicle into space with people on board without a prior unmanned launch.

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.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", she told USA Today at the time.

The Screen Actors Guild-American Federation of Television and Radio Artists is investigating claims Michelle Williams was paid significantly less than a male co-star. (Forbes also named him the year's most overpaid actor.) The highest-paid actress, Emma Stone, earned less than half as much: $26 million. The ceremony was fashioned into a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative started to gender inequality and sexual harassment in Hollywood and other industries. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

Spokesmen for Imperative, William Morris Endeavor and Sony Pictures, which distributed "All the Money in the World", declined to comment for this article.

Deadline learned today that before any of the reshoots occurred, Wahlberg took an 80% cut on what he normally earns ($15 million-plus a movie) in order to work with Scott and because it was a potential awards contender. The problem is that she, her representatives and the producers of "All The Money In The World" all accepted that pulling off that ambitious goal required her to forfeit a salary.
