"All the Money in the World" director Ridley Scott embarked on a whirlwind of hasty reshoots late a year ago when the news broke that the film's original star, Kevin Spacey, faced multiple allegations of sexual misconduct.
As the conversation in Hollywood continues, it seems this may only be the tip of the iceberg.
After criticism for his hefty reshoot pay on "All the Money in the World" in the wake of the Kevin Spacey scandal, Wahlberg donated his earnings ($1.5 million) to the Time's Up campaign. Williams was said to have received only a per diem that totaled about $1,000 while Wahlberg and his agent negotiated an additional fee of $1.5 million.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the subject of Williams' and Wahlberg's pay was the topic of conversation at a recent Time's Up meeting, and that despite sharing the screen for roughly the same time, Wahlberg was paid eight times more than Williams. One could possibly argue that no one could have known ahead of time that Williams would deliver an awards-worthy performance in the film, but since she's been nominated for four Oscars over the last 12 years - which is two more than Wahlberg - it's safe to say you can bet on her bringing the prestige buzz to a picture. Wahlberg has been nominated for two Oscars, and one of those nominations was for producing "The Fighter", not for acting.
Williams' salary discrepancy was part of a THR story about the conversation women in Hollywood are having about their salaries in order to get equal pay.

The increased scrutiny manifested at last weekend's Golden Globes ceremony in the form of multiple actresses and actors showing solidarity by wearing all-black on the red carpet, along with pins that read "Time's Up" in support of the fund started by Reese Witherspoon, Meryl Streep, Jennifer Aniston and Shonda Rhimes.
