While the uproar over Mark Wahlberg's $1.5 million fee for the 'All The Money In The World' reshoots may have died down after he donated it to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund (along with an additional $500,000 from his and Michelle William's shared agency, WME), the conversation about pay equality in Hollywood hasn't gone away.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the subject of Williams' and Wahlberg's pay was the topic of conversation at a recent Time's Up meeting, and that despite sharing the screen for roughly the same time, Wahlberg was paid eight times more than Williams.
Yes, despite having four Oscar nominations under her belt to his two, and being the only one of the two nominated for awards for her role, Williams was paid $625,000 compared to Wahlberg's $5 million paycheck.
Arguments can be made that no one could have predicted Williams' awards nomination streak before she signed on, and Wahlberg and his team are said to be known in Hollywood for being tough deal makers, but considering Williams has 90 career nominations and 24 wins across different awards, she's pretty much a lock for bringing prestige and awards buzz to a film.
As the conversation in Hollywood continues, it seems this may only be the tip of the iceberg.
