According to USA Today, Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for his part in the reshoots for "All the Money in the World", while Michelle Williams was paid an $80 per diem which came to less than $1,000.

"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", she wrote. Mark, apparently, yes-unbeknownst to Michelle.

With news of the pay gap now public, many actors and fans have come to Williams defense, including The Deuce's Dave Krumholtz.

USA Today have since reported that Wahlberg's team actually negotiated a significant fee for his reshoots, but Williams wasn't told.

While it was first reported in November that Williams was receiving a fraction of Mark Wahlberg's payday for reshoots to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer, outrage erupted online on Tuesday when the exact numbers were reported.

So, when news broke that Ridley planned to reshoot Spacey's scenes with Christopher Plummer and still make his end of December premiere date, it seemed noble, but impossible. Wahlberg and Williams are both represented by William Morris, raising questions about why the agency only secured additional income for one of its clients.

She wasn't told. Maybe they didn't tell Ridley Scott, either?

"For me, it was an instant yes", the actress said of the reshoots while promoting the film. This is in conflict with what director Ridley Scott knew the understanding to be when he spoke to USA Today earlier.

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'. "And they could have my salary; they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she told USA Today.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me", she said.

Prior to Sunday's Golden Globe Awards, Williams, 37, was on vacation with Youmans and her 12-year-old daughter, Matilda Ledger.

The news comes days after actresses showed up to the Golden Globes, dressed in black in solidarity against sexual violence.

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.
