ACTUALLY, IT’S REALLY QUITE SIMPLE: “Why Mark Wahlberg Got ‘All the Money in the World’ for Reshoots and Michelle Williams Didn’t — It may look like obvious sexism, but it’s complicated,” The Wrap claims:

Wahlberg received more than 1000 times as much money as she did because reshoots were not in his contract, according to an individual with knowledge of the deal. It’s no surprise that Wahlberg’s agent, Ari Emanuel, demanded top dollar: Their dynamic inspired Wahlberg’s series ‘Entourage,’ in which an Emanuel-inspired agent’s ruthlessness is a running gag.

“Oh look, Michelle William’s contract required her to do reshoots, and Mark Wahlberg’s didn’t,” Alex Griswold of the Washington Free Beacon tweets. It’s almost as if some actors and their agents remember the importance of the second word in the phrase “show business.”

“Oh, you hired a pederast and you need me to come reshoot scenes because he finally got blown up in the media? F*** you, pay me,” Sonny Bunch adds, paraphrasing the mobster in Goodfellas played by Paul Sorvino.

As Glenn asks, where was Lee’s agent when her contract was negotiated?
