Mark Wahlberg paid $4M more than Michelle Williams for 'Money'

Michelle Williams was reportedly paid eight times less than Mark Wahlberg for her Golden Globe-nominated performance in “All the Money in the World.”

Williams was paid $ 625,000 for her work, according to The Hollywood Reporter, while her male co-star took home $ 5 million.

In the film, Williams and Wahlberg have nearly equal screen time, according to Vulture.

The THR report was part of a larger story about actresses who are beginning to have conversations with each other about their compensations in order to strengthen their salary negotiations.

Wahlberg donates $ 1.5M to #TimesUp in Michelle Williams’ name

The news comes just over a week after it was revealed that Wahlberg was paid $ 1.5 million for the scenes he had to reshoot for the film, while the “Manchester by the Sea” actress received less than $ 1,000.

Wahlberg donated his additional salary to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Williams’ name and the William Morris Endeavor, the agency that represents both actors, donated an additional $ 500,000.

Williams and Wahlberg were compensated for their time spent reshooting scenes from the movie with Christopher Plummer when the film’s director, Ridley Scott, decided to replace Kevin Spacey amid the multiple sexual assault allegations made against the actor.
