Mark Wahlberg reportedly paid way more than Michelle Williams for reshoot

The impressive cinematic feat of Ridley Scott's "All the Money in the World" has been undercut yet again by reports that Mark Wahlberg earned a whole lot more money than his costar Michelle Williams during reshoots of the film.

Prior to Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Williams, 37, was on vacation with Youmans and her 12-year-old daughter, Matilda Ledger. The lead actress, Michelle Williams, received $80 per diem or a little under $1,000. Portman had just won an Oscar for her role in Black Swan, but was still paid three times less than her non-Oscar winning co-star.

But in actuality, Wahlberg, who plays Getty's advisor Fletcher Case, and his team negotiated a $1.5-million U.S. fee, while Williams, who plays the kidnapped grandson's mother, received less than $1,000, according to USA Today, which sources three people not authorized to speak publicly about it. Williams has yet to address the disparity and was unaware her co-star was being paid significantly more.

People reports that celebrities have been flooding social media with gripes about the pay disparity. Both actors are represented by William Morris Endeavor agency and according to sources, Williams was not told about Walhberg's salary.

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.

Produced by Imperative Entertainment and distributed by Sony's TriStar Pictures, "All the Money in the World" recounts the 1973 kidnapping and ransoming of J. P. Getty III, grandson of J. Paul Getty.

Wahlberg was named Hollywood's highest paid actor by Forbes previous year, raking in an estimated $68 million in the publication's 12-month scoring period.

Wahlberg's team negotiated for the hefty fee, while Williams did it for "nothing", as did director Ridley Scott.

Spacey issued a statement saying he did not remember the alleged incident, but apologized for what he said would have been "inappropriate drunken behavior".

Ridley Scott partially re-shot his latest movie after Kevin Spacey was sacked due to sexual misconduct allegations, with both Wahlberg and Williams called back to act opposite Spacey's replacement, Christopher Plummer.

Williams told USA Today in December that she was willing to do what needed to be done for the reshoot. CNNMoney has reached out to Scott for comment.

As her date, Williams brought civil rights activist Tarana Burke, the creator in 2006 of the "Me Too" movement to raise awareness of the ubiquity of sexual abuse.

Also speaking to USA Today, Williams said of the reshoot that "they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted, because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort".

"They all came in free", he told USA Today.
