Mark Wahlberg's Agent on Pay Disparity: He Doesn't Work for Free

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams

Wahlberg left it to his representatives at William Morris Endeavor - which also represents Williams - to negotiate his compensation.

It may be that it's not quite cut and dried, with issues over contracts now emerging to explain why Williams only received her $80 per diem in payment for the reshoots.

According to Variety, a spokesperson for SAG-AFTRA, which is the union representing both the actors, said that the organisation is looking at the circumstances of the pay disparity. "It's just been such a unusual saga of highs and lows and ups and downs", continued the actress, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for the film. The people briefed on the matter said that she did so believing that other participants had made the same decision. "I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home (for Thanksgiving) and make alternate arrangements for them", she told Vulture.

Williams reiterated: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". All scenes featuring the disgraced actor were reshot over 10 days, costing Imperative $10 million, according to USA Today. He asked his primary agent, Doug Lucterhand, to push for more money. Much of the film's foreign sales hung on Wahlberg's attachment.

Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage over the production team: He was the only major missing piece, and the clock was ticking.

Flaw in WhatsApp and Signal exposes group chats to 'extremely difficult' hacks
Stamos objected to the report, stating that there are multiple ways to check and verify the members of a group chat. The WhatsApp servers can only be controlled by staff, governments who legally demand access, and high-level hackers.

Imperative ultimately agreed to a $1.5 million payment.

"I thought I would have to raise my daughter to learn how to protect herself in a unsafe world and I think because of the work Tarana has done and the work I am learning how to do, we actually have the opportunity to hand our children a different world", Williams told Ryan Seacrest during a red carpet interview.

Wahlberg is known in Hollywood as a shrewd negotiator.

Individual client contracts are not always discussed between agents who work at the same agency. Following the Sony hack during the fourth quarter of 2014, emails revealed that Sony had paid American Hustle female stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence considerably less than male stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale. Melissa Silverstein, the founder of Women and Hollywood, a nonprofit that pushes for gender equality in entertainment, said Williams was the latest example of the shortchanging of women in a male-dominated industry.

Specific actresses have spoken out about the plethora of ways women are undermined and not valued in their industry. "If Hollywood is to achieve the systemic change brought about by the revelations of the last several months, one thing it must address is the economic disparity between men and women".
