Williams was paid less than $1,000 for reshoots of the Ridley Scott film, while Wahlberg received $1.5 million. Speaking at a hearing in Washington D.C. about closing the gender pay gap, Williams said: “This came as no surprise to me, it simply reinforced my life-learned belief that equality is not an inalienable right and that women would always be working just as hard for less money while shouldering more responsibility at home.”
