According to Deadline, actors' union SAG-AFTRA is now investigating reports that Michelle Williams was paid just $US80 ($111) per day to reshoot scenes for All The Money In The World, whereas co-star Mark Wahlberg reportedly got paid $200,000 ($279,000) per day.
Ridley Scott's All the Money in the World made headlines late past year when the director was forced to reshoot the film following sexual misconduct allegations made against former star Kevin Spacey. 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.
Wahlberg received $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes in "All the Money in the World", the film about the Getty kidnapping case, while Williams received less than $1,000, a report said Tuesday. 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. The fact they're both represented by the same talent agency - WME - could raise questions, if true, about fair and equal representation.
In an interview with USA Today, Scott seemed to imply that he and the cast had some unwritten agreement to work overtime without pay because they wanted the film made, and they needed to get Kevin Spacey out of it.
Female celebrities also slammed the unjust pay distribution. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary".
Judd Apatow added in a tweet of his own, "This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe. Almost", director Judd Apatow tweeted.

The company replaced the image with one of the sweatshirt alone, and initially kept the product for sale on its website.
"We're looking into it", a union source said. Wahlberg's agent Ari Emanuel - the person that Jeremy Piven's character of Entourage was based upon, which was by the way produced by Wahlberg - was in part able to grant his client this advantage because the actor reportedly initially signed up to do the film at a pay cut to add prestige to his résumé. The ceremony was fashioned into a showcase for Time's Up, a new initiative started to gender inequality and sexual harassment in Hollywood and other industries. 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.
Because of the circumstances, Williams quickly agreed to return.
Williams also agreed to work over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight and arranging for her 12-year-old daughter to spend the holiday without her.
The film "All the Money in the World" didn't live up to its title when it came to paying actress Michelle Williams - an uncomfortable revelation at a time when Hollywood is still trying to find its footing in treating women fairly, experts say.
Whether Williams could have gotten the exact same paycheck as Wahlberg for the reshoots probably depends on how much additional work each of them had to do. Detailing how the negotiations for the reshoot went down, the sources revealed that Williams was the first to be approached by a producer, not Scott.
