In Hollywood, the studio behind the new film “All the Money in the World” is under fire, following reports it paid actor Mark Wahlberg 1,500 times more than the woman in its lead role, Michelle Williams, for a reshoot of several scenes. The reshoot came after director Ridley Scott chose to edit actor Kevin Spacey out of the nearly finished movie when more than a dozen men accused Spacey of sexual harassment and assault. After Scott cast Christopher Plummer in Spacey’s role, actor Michelle Williams was given a per diem of $80 for the reshoot, which kept her away from her family over the Thanksgiving holiday. Her co-star, Mark Wahlberg, was paid $1.5 million for the reshoots—in a supporting role. News of the pay disparity comes just days after more than 1,000 prominent actresses, writers and directors launched the “Time’s Up” project aimed at combating sexual abuse and harassment in the film industry. We’ll be speaking with some of them after headlines.
