Williams has been nominated for an Academy Award four times and has five Golden Globe nominations, while Wahlberg has yet to receive a similar nod from either organization. Apparently, the film had all the money for star Mark Wahlberg, but not for his co-star Michelle Williams.
But the optics of paying the lead actor 1500 times more than the lead actress, if true, would be the latest example of the age-old pay gap between actors and actresses.
It turns out that Williams, who plays the lead character in the film, actually did get paid for the reshoots - a nominal fee of a little less than $1,000, about $80 per day.
But three sources, who remained anonymous, were cited in the report detailing Wahlberg and Williams' payments for the unprecedented shoot. Christopher Plummer was given the role, but the other principal actors had to come in to shoot additional scenes.

Williams and Youmans were first spotted together on the streets of Rome in July 2017 as the actress filmed All the Money in the World.
Filmmaker Judd Apatow called the news "almost hard to believe", but added that he wondered "if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane". Christopher had to get paid.
The news comes as a shock, especially in the wake of the Time's Up movement's domination at Sunday night's Golden Globes, which pushed for gender parity in Hollywood, in addition to supporting women against sexual harassment. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Instead of official statements, the Hollywood community has come out in outrage over the report that Williams made less than 1 percent of what Wahlberg made.
