Mark Wahlberg allegedly refused casting of Christopher Plummer in 'All The Money'

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

She ultimately worked over Thanksgiving, racing to London on an overnight flight after arranging for her 12-year-old daughter, Matilda, to spend the holiday without her.

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.

Other actresses including Mia Farrow, Amber Tamblyn and Sophia Bush also spoke out on social media against the reported pay disparity.

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 plot thickened yesterday when it was announced that SAG-AFTRA, the actors union, had opened an investigation into that gargantuan pay disparity.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to re-shoot scenes with Plummer, and that Williams was only paid her per diem - less than $1,000.

Although several actors with small parts, including Timothy Hutton, had agreed to return for reshoots for minimum pay, Wahlberg was not one of them, according to the people briefed on the negotiations.

Director Ridley Scott chose to reshoot scenes from "All the Money in the World" that included Kevin Spacey after the Oscar-winning actor was accused of sexual harassment and assault.

A statement issued through his solicitors said: " Peter Beardsley is aware of inaccurate media reports which result from unauthorised leaks".

CNNMoney has reached out to for Wahlberg and Williams' representatives for comment. "She deserves more than 1% of her male co-star's salary", Ms Chastain tweeted.

According to USA Today, Wahlberg asked for more money because he wasn't satisfied with the choice of Christopher Plummer as the replacement for Kevin Spacey. However, the reports suggested that the reshoots cost over $10 million to the makers.

When Scott made the unprecedented decision to reshoot, in the wake of the allegations of sexual assault leveled against Spacey in November, he and his team had to move quickly since the film's scheduled release was just one month away.

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. The problem is that she, her representatives and the producers of "All The Money In The World" all accepted that pulling off that ambitious goal required her to forfeit a salary.

"All the Money in the World" was produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures.

Wahlberg had earlier agreed to take about 80 percent of his usual quote - which is in the $15 million range - to appear in the film.
