Michelle Williams will always have the support of her biggest fan.
In a new interview with Vulture, the 37-year-old actress opened up about the tough decision to miss Thanksgiving with her family in order to reshoot All The Money In The World after the Kevin Spacey controversy.
As we know, it wasn’t the money that tempted her to complete the project (read: Mark Wahlberg was reportedly paid an additional $1.5 million while she got under $1,000 for the reshoots). Instead, it was her 12-year-old daughter, Matilda, who put everything into perspective.
When asked about the effort to save the movie, Michelle said in the feature:
“I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn’t going be home [for the holidays] and make alternate arrangements for them. But everyone was so supportive, no one more than my 12-year-old daughter, who said, ├óΓé¼╦£You worked so hard on this. Don’t let it be ruined because of one bad man.'”
That is amazing!
As for the toll the situation took on her emotionally, the advocate explained:
“It’s just been up and down, up and down, and has meant that I’ve worked every day for the last two months. It’s been an emotional roller coaster.”
“It’s just been such a strange saga of highs and lows and ups and downs. To go from what was surprisingly one of the most exciting and creative experiences of my whole life with [Ridley Scott], who I wouldn’t have expected to have as my compadre ├óΓé¼┬ª and then, to have it kind of skid into the dirt with Kevin Spacey ├óΓé¼┬ª”
Williams pulled off an incredible performance even with all that drama going on! You’d think she’d be paid accordingly…
