On January 9, USA Today reported that Wahlberg earned $1.5 million for the reshoot, which constitutes 15 percent of the reshoot budget.

Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams costar in "All the Money in the World", which went through some quick reshoots when Kevin Spacey was dropped as J. Paul Getty and Christopher Plummer stepped in.

Director Ridley Scott made a decision 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.

Scott managed to assemble his cast and crew on short notice during the Christmas period, successfully reshooting and re-editing the film in time to meet its original release date. Representatives for Wahlberg, Williams and the film did not respond to USA Today's request for comments.

Williams received a Golden Globe nomination for her work in the movie, as did Spacey replacement Plummer, along with the director, Scott.

Meanwhile, Williams had previously told USA Today: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". Others argued that Wahlberg's higher pay was because of his box office draw, while still others defended Williams' reputation as an actress, saying their pay should have been equal.

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

Spacey was edited out of the film after numerous allegations of sexual misconduct were made against him, including an accusation from Star Trek: Discovery actor Anthony Rapp.

Movie producer Judd Apatow called the claims "messed up". and added: 'I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane'.

Michelle Williams is part of the Time's Up initiative launched by Hollywood women to combat widespread sexual harassment across the US. "And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said. When inequitable pay has become an issue in Hollywood in the past - as with Jennifer Lawrence and Amy Adams for "American Hustle" and Taraji P. Henson for "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" - agents have defended themselves by pointing out that it is in their best interest to negotiate the biggest paychecks possible for their clients, regardless of gender.

Then, when asked if the actors didn't get paid either, he said: "No, they all came in free".

Golden Globe-winning actress Mia Farrow said the disparity was "outrageously unfair", adding that she was "never, ever paid even a quarter of what the male lead received".
