In late 2017, the news spread like a wildfire that she had been paid less than $1000 compared to that of $1.5 million that her co-star had received for the exact amount of work.
Michelle remembers the moment and claims that no one even cared for the matter, but it did not surprise her as she reinforced her life-learned belief that equality is not an inalienable right. She added:
women would always be working just as hard for less money while shouldering more responsibility at home.

Wahlberg’s agent had already negotiated him the fee for returning to Europe to reshoot the movie over Thanksgiving weekend.
Mark Wahlberg replaced actor Kevin Spacey after he was accused of sexual harassment and assault of young boys. It was director Ridley Scott who decided to replace Kevin Spacey.
