Now, comments have emerged in which the actor admits that men need to be partial of the solution for the gender compensate opening – but refuses to take a compensate cut.

In an talk with the Associated Press, the 65-year-old pronounced of the gender compensate gap: ‘There’s a lot of contention about it and a lot of healthy and required contention about it since the inconsistency infrequently is fucking disgraceful.

‘We’re starting and it’s starting with these unusual actresses and dauntless ladies and we as men have got to be partial of it. We started it, so we have to be partial of the solution.’

However, when asked either he would take a compensate cut, Liam said: ‘Pay cut? No, no, no, no, no. That’s going too far. There has to be parity; there just has to be.’

Many people on social media have hit out at his comments, nonetheless some have shielded him.

One person tweeted: ‘The indicate is positively not that he won’t take a compensate cut, it’s that the women should be paid just as much as him!!! Liam Neeson RIGHTLY refusing a compensate cut is not the problem to concentration on here.’

Neeson’s comments come as it emerged that Mark Wahlberg was paid 1,000 times some-more than his All The Money In The World co-star Michelle Williams for reshoots.

However, Williams – who is represented by William Morris Endeavour, the same group as Wahlberg – was paid $1,000.

It has been claimed that this compensate inconsistency was down to agreement negotiation, rather than a gender compensate gap.

A source told People: ‘Once the Spacey conditions happened, Michelle nicely, wholeheartedly and willingly done herself accessible for reshoots and in spin was paid the per diem reshoot rate. As for Mark, and since he had casting approval, he motionless to take advantage of that partial of his agreement and renegotiate his altogether film price before filming with Christopher Plummer could proceed.

‘It wasn’t that he was paid an additional million for the reshoot while Michelle and all the other costars were just paid per diem for the reshoot. He opted to renegotiate his altogether deal.

‘So in this case, it isn’t a male/female compensate opening issue, but rather a outrageous A-list star, who was already being paid way reduction than his common quote, using his agreement and his contend in casting to negotiate an altogether bigger paycheck.’
