But on Tuesday, USA Today reported that Wahlberg's team negotiated his $1.5 million fee for the reshoot, and Williams, who is represented by the same agency, was not told about it. "She has been in the industry for 20 yrs. And I'll give you my Thanksgiving break, if that would help.' And they, to their credit, they only took my Thanksgiving break", Williams said.

Several high profile names took to Twitter to voice their displeasure with the news, including actors Jessica Chastain and Patricia Arquette, who have been vocal about the need for gender equality and wage parity in Hollywood.

There are two reasons main reasons, the first being that Wahlberg and Williams - who are both represented by the same agency, William Morris Endeavor - started out the project with unequal contracts. One source insists that unlike his co-stars, Wahlberg was not contractually obligated to do reshoots, while other reports have said that all the actors in the film had contracts that provided for reshoots.

"On the day after display of female power at the #goldenglobes, I learned that there was an egregious pay gap between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg for the All The Money In The World reshoot", Silverstein tweeted.

Scott had previously implied that "everyone did it for nothing".

Ridley Scott's Getty kidnapping drama was hastily reshot the week of Thanksgiving after a cascade of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Spacey, who had starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty.

Because Williams had already committed to return, Wahlberg had leverage: He was the only major missing piece and the clock was ticking. For the 10 days shooting spell, WME negotiated more than $1million for Wahlberg but only $80 per day for the four-time Oscar-nominated actress. Director Ridley Scott made the decision to recast his role with Christopher Plummer and complete filming to make the movie's December 22 release date, which at that point was approximately a month away. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar's salary".

The pay gap issue has proved its severity in the Forbes' World's Highest-Paid Actors list where the top 10 actors raked in nearly $500 million a year ago while the top 10 women managed only about a third. The reps said the actor "never" works for free and demanded the money, with the financiers agreeing to pay as they had no choice. Imperative Entertainment didn't have any more money. 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.
