Wahlberg is represented by manager Stephen Levinson and agency WME, who, according to the Washington Post, who first reported Wahlberg's fee, "have a reputation in Hollywood for driving a tough bargain".

Spacey was edited out of the film after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct were made against him, including an accusation from Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp.

"I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", filmmaker Judd Apatow added. "And they could have my salary; they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she told USA Today.

Similarly, Scott also told the same publication that, 'all of them, everyone did it for nothing'.

Fellow actresses such as Chastain have taken to Twitter in outrage, saying, "Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World". Jessica Chastain, who is now starring in the Golden Globe-nominated "Molly's Game", said Williams is a "brilliant" actress who "deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary".

Hollywood was abuzz Wednesday with chatter about a report that said actress Michelle Williams received less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg's paycheck for reshoots of their film, "All the Money in the World".

"And there was some sadness around that, more sadness around the allegations and the pain that's been caused, and then this phone call came, this late breaking idea of how to save the film, rewrite the story, do the right thing, and I was exuberantly immediately on board".

While the crew was paid for reshoots, as was new cast member Christopher Plummer, Scott said the buck stopped there, adding "The whole reshoot was - in normal terms was expensive but not as expensive as you think. But Michelle, no. Me, no", Scott said. She tweeted after the Golden Globes, where Williams had been nominated for an award. Wahlberg's agents, however, negotiated a fee of $1.5 million for the actor for the same reshoots, the newspaper says. Both actors are represented by William Morris Endeavor agency and according to sources, Williams was not told about Walhberg's salary.

Actress and activist Amber Tamblyn described the reported pay gap as "totally unacceptable" while veteran producer Judd Apatow said it was "so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe".
