  • Hollywood uproad over Mark Wahlberg-Michelle Williams pay gap

But on Tuesday, USA Today reported that Wahlberg's team negotiated his $1.5 million fee for the reshoot, and Williams, who is represented by the same agency, was not told about it. "And I'll give you my Thanksgiving break, if that would help.' And they, to their credit, they only took my Thanksgiving break", Williams said.

The report about the glaring pay disparity has gone viral on social media and invited criticism by many celebrities, such as Jessica Chastain, Mia Farrow and Judd Apatow.

Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by William Morris/Endeavor.

Scott told USA Today last month that the reshoot was made possible because nobody but Plummer and the crew got paid. The plot thickened yesterday when it was announced that SAG-AFTRA, the actors union, had opened an investigation into that gargantuan pay disparity.

The Guardian also reported that two California counties are suing 37 fossil fuel companies for their alleged involvement in emitting greenhouse gases.

Michelle Williams' 12-year-old daughter encouraged her mum to ditch the family's Thanksgiving plans to reshoot scenes for All the Money in the World following Kevin Spacey's sex scandal. "It's just been such a odd saga of highs and lows and ups and downs", continued the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film. Detailing how the negotiations for the reshoot went down, the sources revealed that Williams was the first to be approached by a producer, not Scott.

Director Ridley Scott partially re-shot his latest movie after Kevin Spacey was sacked because of sexual misconduct allegations, with both Wahlberg and Williams called back to act opposite Spacey's replacement Christopher Plummer.

Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer only one month before the film was set to hit theatres previous year, after sexual harassment allegations emerged.

What's alarming and preposterous about this revelation is that Williams is a markedly more gifted and critically recognized film presence than Wahlberg, who hasn't even given a noteworthy acting performance in his career.

Connectivity is another big aspect here, as you'll enjoy two USB 3.0 ports, and for the first time, two USB 3.1 Type-C ports. Actually, the OS is a full Linux distribution that is both extremely secure and easy to use.

Williams seems to have decided that, of these two ideas, the former was more important.

Actor Christopher Plummer replaced Spacey in the role of billionaire Jean Paul Getty in the film based on the real-life kidnapping of Getty's grandson John Paul Getty III.

But with Williams already on board and the clock ticking towards the release date, Wahlberg's representatives knew they had leverage over the production team, both the Times and TMZ said.

"All the Money in the World" was produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures. But with the film's survival on the line, she agreed to take far less: the union-designated rate of $80 per day, which worked out to less than $1,000 for the 10 days of reshoots. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money.

Cole, though, would give the Yankees a more proven arm, though one that doesn't come without some concern. The Yankees had been in trade talks with the Pirates about Cole for several weeks.
