In a previous interview with USA Today, Scott said that he was able to reshoot so quickly because "everyone did it for nothing".
Certainly there's some sort of explanation that will come out over why Wahlberg required a salary while the other principals opted to forego any fees, but for the time being USA Today's request for comment from Scott, Wahlberg, Williams, WME (which represents each of the actors), Sony Pictures and production company Imperative Entertainment have yielded no responses.
While Scott previously told USA Today that only Plummer was paid for the additional filming, USA Today reported that Wahlberg's team negotiated a deal for the actor to receive $1.5 million for his reshoots. His co-star, Michelle Williams, however only received a $80 per diem, which totals to less than $1,000. Doing the math, that meant that Williams was effectively paid less than one percent of the amount Wahlberg was paid to reshoot the scenes for the film. "They all came in for free".More news: Harassed over inter-faith friendship, girl kills self
She also made a point of stressing the fact that giving up her holiday and working without pay were both sacrifices she was happy to make given the situation.
News of the alleged disparity between Wahlberg and Williams did not go down well online. Now it's grossed over $20 million in two weeks.
Wahlberg's seven-figure payday should help in his quest to finish out the year as Hollywood highest paid star, a title he took home in 2016 after making $67 million.More news: LiAngelo Ball, LaMelo Ball combine for 29 points in Lithuanian pro debut
She lost out at the Golden Globes on Sunday to Frances McDormand, but proved to be the ideal date for her guest, #MeToo creator Tarana Burke. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort", she continued.
Burke, an activist from Harlem, launched the #MeToo movement a decade ago to aid underprivileged women of color affected by sexual abuse. I was like, you can have my salary, you can just take it, I don't even do it... that's not why I work.
Burke said the solidarity and the support behind Time's Up and #MeToo is something we've never seen before and that she's grateful to the actresses sharing their platforms to turn the spotlight back on survivors rather than perpetrators. Plummer was paid, naturally, because this was his first go-round on the film.More news: Jimmy Iovine Is Leaving His Position At Apple Music
