Celebrities React to Michelle Williams' Pay Disparity with Mark Wahlberg

Celebrities React to Michelle Williams' Pay Disparity with Mark Wahlberg

But in actuality, Wahlberg, who plays Getty's advisor Fletcher Case, and his team negotiated a $1.5-million United States fee, while Williams, who plays the kidnapped grandson's mother, received less than $1,000, according to USA Today, which sources three people not authorized to speak publicly about it. Williams has yet to address the disparity and was unaware her co-star was being paid significantly more. The news comes at the height of the Time's Up movement, which was set up after the Harvey Weinstein scandal and to compliment the Me Too movement.

Wahlberg, meanwhile, earned $1.5 million.

- Jesse Tyler Ferguson (@jessetyler) January 10, 2018 Michelle Williams was paid 1% of what her male co-star made on her latest film.

Reshooting sections of a movie is always expensive, but that was especially true for All the Money in the World.

Williams and Wahlberg are represented by the same talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, a detail that Bush was quick to point on in her tweet.

CNNMoney has reached out to for Wahlberg and Williams' representatives for comment.

Director and writer Judd Apatow took to Twitter to voice his concern with the wage gap as did a whole bunch of other celebrities who are standing up for Michelle Williams.

- Melissa Silverstein (@melsil) January 9, 2018This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe. Almost. This is how this business works.

"I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he tweeted.

- Jessica Chastain (@jes_chastain) January 10, 2018 This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe. She had this to say. While Plummer and the crew got paid, Scott refused payment, he said at the time, and so did star Michelle Williams. Would anyone like to clarify?

Golden Globe-winning actress Mia Farrow said the disparity was "outrageously unfair", adding that she was "never, ever paid even a quarter of what the male lead received".

The four-time Oscar nominated actress looked happy and relaxed, lounging on the beach with her beau in a red one-piece swimsuit, white sunglasses, and floppy hat.

There has been no official statement released by anyone from the All the Money in the World crew on the matter as of this writing.

Scott said in subsequent interviews that returning cast appeared in the reshoots for free and only Plummer was paid.
