Christopher Plummer has said the pay disparity between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams for reshoots on All The Money In The World was a ‘scandal’.

The film, directed by Ridley Scott, underwent reshoots last year to replace actor Kevin Spacey with Plummer after sexual harassment and assault allegations were made against Spacey.

Star Williams and Scott filmed the reshoots for free, receiving $80 a day per diem, while Wahlberg’s agent demanded a fee for the actor.

After this became public, the actor donated $1.5m rewards for the reshoots to the sexual misconduct defence initiative Time’s Up.

Plummer, who has been nominated for a best supporting actor Oscar for his perfomance in the film, said Mark did the right thing.

When asked about it by The Hollywood Reporter, Plummer said: ‘Oh Jesus, it never stops. The scandal goes on and on.

‘I thought it was good that Mark ended up donating his salary.’

After deciding to drop The House Of Cards star from the film, Scott said he ‘could not tolerate Spacey’s behaviour’.

He told Entertainment Tonight: ‘I was finished with the film and was in Abbey Road finalising the music. Someone was like: Guess what? And that’s where it began.

‘I sat and thought about it and realised, we cannot. You can’t tolerate any kind of behavior like that. And it will affect the film.

‘We cannot let one person’s action affect the good work of all these other people. It’s that simple.’
