Actor Mark Wahlberg has made millions of dollars off thanking Kevin Spacey

Wahlberg was set to star in All the Money in the World alongside Spacey, but after sexual misconduct allegations Spacey was dropped off the film. Director Ridley Scott decided to scrub Spacey, who was to play J. Paul Getty, from the movie, even though financial damages were huge. Scott wanted to reshoot in time for awards season, with Christopher Plummer taking over Spacey’s role. A number of the stars in the film were happy to reshoot without asking for more money for their work. Mark Wahlberg negotiated a $1.5 million payout for the reshoot. The disparity between the pay the two actors took away meant that Williams paid less than one-tenth of 1 percent of Wahlberg. Wahlberg is believed to be the highest-paid actor of the year, earning $68 million according to Forbes. Scott has said that the reshoot was not as expensive as usual, but still cost 10 extra millions.
