Ridley Scott reportedly furious over Mark Wahlberg/Michelle Williams pay discrepancy

  Ridley Scott reportedly furious over Mark Wahlberg/Michelle Williams pay discrepancy Ridley Scott was told that all the actors were doing reshoots for free.Director Ridley Scott reportedly didn't know that Mark Wahlberg was pocketing millions of dollars for the "All The Money in the World" reshoots. He feels angry and "hung out to dry" about being in the dark, especially considering the pay discrepancy between the film's two stars.

The All the Money in the World story likely blew up for several reasons. First and foremost, it was a big deal to reshoot a slew of scenes that were supposed to star One noted that Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams had different contracts; hers allegedly included reshoots and his did not.

Hollywood was abuzz Wednesday with chatter about a report that Michelle Williams received less than one percent than Mark Wahlberg for reshoots of USA Today reported Tuesday that Wahlberg was paid .5 million to reshoot his scenes, while Williams received a per diem of per day, totaling

Mark Wahlberg received $1.5 million to take part in reshoots for "All the Money in the World," while Michelle Williams got next to nothing. And while that strikes many as a clear-case of sexism, it just comes down to their contracts, TheWrap has learned.

Williams received only a per diem of $80 a day, as USA Today first reported. Her contract required her to do reshoots, which turned out to be much more extensive than planned because director Ridley Scott re-cast disgraced actor Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer.

Wahlberg received more than 100 times as much money as she did because reshoots were not in his contract, according to an individual with knowledge of the deal. It's no surprise that Wahlberg's agent, Ari Emanuel, demanded top dollar for Wahlberg's time: Their dynamic inspired Wahlberg's series "Entourage," in which an Emanuel's-inspired agent's ruthlessness is a running gag.

Mark Wahlberg refused to approve Christopher Plummer unless he was paid

Mark Wahlberg was paid .5 million for reshooting his scenes in All the Money in the World , three people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it tell USA TODAY, while Michelle Williams was paid an per diem totaling less than ,000. That works out to Williams

For Michelle Williams , ' All The Money In The World ' was a rare major studio leading role in an industry that gives male actors like Mark Wahlberg Assuming all of this is true, then Michelle Williams and Ridley Scott agreed to work on reshoots sans much in the way of compensation while

Emanuel, Wahlberg's agent, is also co-CEO of WME. The company's other co-CEO, Patrick Whitesell, represents Williams.

It's also worth noting that Wahlberg's character has many more scenes with J. Paul Getty (Plummer). The reshoots cost about $10 million in all, according to USA Today.

Prior to production, the film was financed through foreign pre-sales, the insider told TheWrap. Wahlberg, Forbes' highest-paid actor for 2017, took a massive pay cut to star in the film, which is gunning for awards. That's a common move for action stars looking to add more prestige to their IMDB profiles.

The insider said Wahlberg earned more for reshoots because he had lowered his fee and is one of the biggest draws worldwide.

WME, the agency representing both Wahlberg and Williams, did not respond to TheWrap's request for comment. Reps for both actors did not respond to requests for comment.

It turns out the reason Mark Wahlberg made more than Michelle Williams for reshooting All the Money in the World post-Kevin Spacey was his contract.

Meanwhile, USA Today says that Wahlberg ’s co-star Michelle Williams wasn’ t told about the fee, and she was only given Ridley Scott has previously indicated that he was proud of how the cast and crew of All The Money In The World came together to reshoot the film with Christopher Plummer in place

Scott said in a previous interview that the returning cast members appeared in the reshoots for free and that only Plummer was paid.

"No, I wouldn't get paid, I refused to get paid," Scott said, adding about the actors: "No, they all came in free. Christopher had to get paid. But Michelle, no. Me, no."

Williams previously told USA Today: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort."

The pay disparity set of a flurry of criticism on Twitter that this was yet another example of gender inequity in Hollywood.

WWE's Roman Reigns, famous actors implicated in steroids ring .
WWE Superstar Roman Reigns and famous actors Mark Wahlberg and Josh Duhamel are accused of being involved in a steroids ring. The accusations of Reigns, Wahlberg and Duhamel’s ties to a steroids ring were revealed by Richard Rodriguez, the owner of Miami-based Wellness Fitness Nutrition and Iron Addicts gym, who is in jail for dealing steroids. His business was raided by the DEA last February. You can read the entire complaint against him here. Filmmaker Jon Bravo is making a film about the gym/steroids ring and interviewed Rodriguez. He posted the audio of an interview with Rodriguez on YouTube on Jan. 11. In that interview, Rodriguez names Reigns Wahlberg and Duhamel as his clients. In the interview, Rodriguez says the reason for naming names and talking is because he is trying to clear his name and make people aware of what’s out there. He claims Reigns was introduced to him by an informant. Reigns, 32, is the current Intercontinental Champion in WWE. He was suspended by WWE for a month in 2016 for a wellness policy violation.
