Mark Wahlberg reportedly refused to approve Christopher Plummer without hefty payday

SAG-AFTRA Looking Into 'All The Money In The World' Pay Disparity Claims

According to a report published this week by USA Today, actress Michelle Williams was paid less than one-tenth of one percent of her male co-star, Mark Wahlberg to re-shoot scenes in the movie after actor Kevin Spacey's scenes were removed from the film. Williams took home a paltry $1000 for giving up her time and Thanksgiving to reshoot, meanwhile Wahlberg pocketed $1.5 million for doing exactly the same. Sony, which is distributing the film in the US, was not involved in the negotiations to bring back the cast and crew for the added reshoots.

Williams and Wahlberg are both represented by William Morris/Endeavor.

Williams previously told USA TODAY that when Scott's team called to request her time for the reshoot, "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me".

The pay gap generated plenty of emotion, including among celebrities.

Williamson was pleased to have extended the series lead to 2-0, and said: "Yeah it was a brilliant performance". But just as the momentum was shifting, Malik danced down the wicket and hit one straight to long-on.

Actress Jessica Chastain tweeted her support of Williams, asking fans to "Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World". "She deserves more than 1 per cent of her male co-star's salary".

Judd Apatow added in a tweet of his own, "This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe. Almost. This is how this business works". The plot thickened yesterday when it was announced that SAG-AFTRA, the actors union, had opened an investigation into that gargantuan pay disparity. The Post, citing sources close to the negotiations, reported then that Wahlberg was paid at least $2 million for approximately 10 days of work. Williams, who earned a Golden Globe nomination for her role in "All the Money in the World", walked the red carpet with Tarana Burke, senior director of the nonprofit Girls for Gender Equity and the founder of the #MeToo movement.

Kevin Spacey was replaced by Christopher Plummer only one month before the film was set to hit theatres a year ago, after sexual harassment allegations emerged.

Williams quickly agreed to return.

And Williams - who has 12-year-old daughter Matilda with late ex-partner Heath Ledger - was only too happy to give up her Thanksgiving holiday and work for free on the reshoots because she'd anxious the project would be "flushed down the toilet" following the accusations against Spacey. "Everyone did it for nothing", he said, adding, "I refused to get paid". "What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them", reveals one person. If Williams' agents had asked the producers to guarantee equal pay rates for everyone involved, "All The Money In The World" would have avoided a round of bad press, and Scott and his colleagues would have gotten double credit. Williams, who has been heralded as a blinding talent for her portrayals in films such as Blue Valentine, My Week With Marilyn and Manchester By The Sea.

CNNMoney has reached out to for Wahlberg and Williams' representatives for comment. The finished film was set to be released in theaters on December 25. Imperative Entertainment didn't have any more money.
