Kevin Spacey’s Fondness for Teen Boys Is Good for Mark Wahlberg’s Wallet

Ridley Scott decided to do some reshoots on All the Money in the World after everyone found out Kevin Spacey was a big fan of young boys. Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer and the cast agreed to do the reshoots for basically little to no money. Except for Mark Wahlberg who somehow negotiated a $2 million payday for 10 days of work. The exact amount ended up being $1.5 million. On the other side of the table, Wahlberg’s co-star Michelle Williams ended up being paid less than $1,000 from an $80 per diem.

In an interview in December, Scott claimed that the reshoot wasn’t as expensive as you would have thought.

RIDLEY SCOTT: “The whole reshoot was — in normal terms was expensive but not as expensive as you think. Because all of them, everyone did it for nothing.”

USA TODAY: “Really?”

SCOTT: “No, I wouldn’t get paid, I refused to get paid.”

USA TODAY: “You didn’t pay the actors more to do it?”

SCOTT: “No, they all came in free. Christopher had to get paid. But Michelle, no. Me, no. I wouldn’t do that to — ”

USA TODAY: “The crew, of course, did get paid?”

SCOTT: “Of course. “

Except for Mark Wahlberg who negotiated his reshoot to $1.5 million despite not having been in a good movie since The Departed and who once blinded a middle-aged Vietnamese man with a stick but no longer feels guilt because he started being nice to people.

Meanwhile, Michelle William is saying stuff like, “I said I’d be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort.”

Man, f**k that guy.
