Deadline reports that if Williams was paid at least union scale for the reshoots, there may be no violation of union rules, regardless of any outside deal any other actor may have negotiated. The entire reason that these reshoots were required was because Christopher Plummer was hired to play the role Kevin Spacey had initially been cast in. Williams, who has been heralded as a blinding talent for her portrayals in films such as Blue Valentine, My Week With Marilyn and Manchester By The Sea.

Scott told USA Today last month that the reshoot was made possible because nobody but Plummer and the crew got paid. The matter was highlighted after Melissa Silverste (Founder of Women and Hollywood) said, "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".

"I wouldn't get paid, I refused to get paid".

CNNMoney has reached out to for Wahlberg and Williams' representatives for comment. "She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary", tweetedactress Jessica Chastain. For the show, actor brothers Mark and Donnie Wahlberg head back to their hometown to join forces with older brother Paul in the hamburger venture.

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 producers' failure to pay Williams more than her per diem might have been an insidious attempt to take advantage of a woman. But with the film's survival on the line, she agreed to take far less: the union-designated rate of $80 per day, which worked out to less than $1,000 for the 10 days of reshoots.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of what she was willing to do for the reshoots.

In late October, director Ridley Scott saw disaster looming for his Getty kidnapping drama after one of its three stars, Kevin Spacey, was accused by multiple men of sexual harassment or assault. I had to break the news to my family and tell them I wasn't going be home [for the holidays] and make alternate arrangements for them. So it's easy to see how those involved in "All The Money In The World" seemed caught between two competing imperatives. Her haul wouldn't even earn her a place on the men's top 10 list.
