A couple of days ago, there was a brouhaha about “gender pay inequality” in Hollywood.
It seems that Ridley Scott’s, All the Money in the World, had to be hastily reshot after disgraced Kevin Spacey was replaced in the role of billionaire J. Paul Getty.
Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes, while Michelle Williams was paid less than $1,000 for reshooting her scenes. Oh noes!
Except, whoops. It turns out the “gender” pay gap was actually a “better contract for a bigger star” pay gap. Wahl’s contract got him big bucks for reshoots. William’s contract only got her the standard $80 per diem.
