That’s how Mark Wahlberg characterizes the disparity between what he was paid — $1.5 million — to reshoot scenes for “All the Money in the World” and what his costar Michelle Williams was paid — less than $1,000.
It was a bad look for the Dorchester-bred actor, and that’s likely why he donated the extra dough to the Time’s Up legal defense fund, which provides legal support to people who’ve experienced sexual harassment, assault, or abuse in the workplace. (With a net worth that’s been estimated to be more than $200 million, Marky Mark could also afford to make such a generous donation.)
But in an interview with “Entertainment Tonight,” Wahlberg noted that someone else determined what he was paid.
“It’s not me who decides who gets paid what. Your value’s based on what the marketplace dictates, and with that particular situation, it was very awkward,” Wahlberg said, adding that he took a “substantial pay cut” in order to make the movie with director Ridley Scott.
