What's next? Accusing a man of assault because he didn't realize that the naked woman who voluntarily sucked his dick wasn't interested in doing anything sexual?
Look, the second time she sucked his dick, he should have picked up on the subtle irony.

Williams never complained publicly, people were upset on her behalf. Though I would totally get if she and the actors (all of whom also just collected SAG minimum) were upset at Wahlberg. Basically the complaint would be, "We all sucked it up to make sure everything got done and you're asking for overtime. Stop being a bitch and suck it up too."

Fair enough.

That part I get. From what I've seen, he accepted a lower rate than usual in exchange for some say in casting of other parts. I'm guessing that he saw this as Oscar bait and wanted to help shape it, and was willing to trade money for potential accolades. It's totally fair for his co-workers to be all "Hey, everyone else put in extra time to make this project work, you pushed for more money when you supposedly cared so much about making it happen. Choose, dude!"

I just don't think it's a discriminatory pay gap.

Marky Mark may be the bigger star but did you somehow miss the death of Heath Ledger and stuff dude? I mean I don’t expect you to know she is LV’s current spokesmodel but she’s extremely famous.
I'm not a Movie Guy, I don't watch the oscars, and am a pretty good representation for "person who isn't into film" name recognition.
I'm maybe more of a Movie Guy than Sandy, maybe not, but I still don't know her by name. Perusing IMDB, I think the only things I saw her in were Oz the Great and Powerful (I don't recall almost anything about the film and don't know why I ended up there, even, so probably because friends wanted to go and I got dragged along) and Species.

Like I can't even remember that her first name is Michelle.

This is a generational thing. Every goddamn person between the ages of 25 and 40 (and every woman between 25 and 50) knows who she is. Dawson's Creek was fucking inescapable. I'm a little surprised Thoreau doesn't recognize her, since he's so desperate to tie the '90s up in his basement and make a skinsuit out of it, though.

I had no idea other than "that name sounds vaguely familiar". I could say the same thing about Wahlberg, though.

But I'm pretty sure I've never seen any of Dawson's Creek at all.

Then call me Mr. Miracle, because the only things I know about the show are 1) James Van Der Beek standing in a boat and 1) a Paula Cole song was involved. I couldn't identify a single other performer, male or female, involved in the production, and I only remember the lead was Van Der Beek because I glanced at wikipedia.

(Well, I know that people of a certain age think the show invented casting twenty-somethings as teenagers, but that's just kids being stupid.)

Another miracle man here.

edit: just googled Michelle Williams. I'm not sure I've ever seen her before.

I didn’t even realize she was on Dawson’s Creek so now I hate her. What a terrible show.

I've certainly heard her name but I never watched Dawson's Creek because it's not a TV genre that I've ever really liked.

I learned all I needed to know in the first episode, which is about how blond guys fall for blonde chicks and not their brown-haired girl-next-door long-term quasi-love interests.

Even though BHGNDLTQLIs will do freaky shit you can't even imagine. And blonde chicks won't even consider until college.

I've only actually seen her in two things, the first episode of Dawson and the movie But I'm a Cheerleader, and I have no memory at all of her in that.
