There is another pay gap controversy brewing in Hollywood – and this time it in involves Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams! As RadarOnline.com has learned, actress Jessica Chastain was the first to blow the whistle on the allegedly unfair salary difference.
Speaking of the pay gap between the two All the Money in the World stars, Chastain, 40, tweeted this Tuesday: "I heard for the reshoot she got $80 a day compared to his MILLIONS. Would anyone like to clarify?" Chastain wrote in response to a user's tweet. "I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly. She's a brilliant actress and is wonderful in the film."
"Please go see Michelle's performance in All The Money in The World. She's a brilliant Oscar nominated Golden Globe winning actress. She has been in the industry for 20 yrs. She deserves more than 1% of her male costar' s salary," she continued on her Twitter rant.
Later, after another user tweeted how "shameful" it was that "Wahlberg was paid $1.5M for 'All the Money' reshoot, Williams got less than $1,000," Williams' outspoken BFF Busy Philipps responded. "SHAMEFUL IS CORRECT," she said.
This past November, the Washington Post reported that Wahlberg, 46, was getting paid $2 million for 10 days of reshoots, while others earned "hundreds of thousands of dollars or less." Williams, 37, in this case, would count as "less."
Film director Ridley Scott, however, later told USA Today that both Wahlberg and Williams did their reshoots "for free."
As Radar readers know, the pay gap scandal between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams comes at the heels of E! News' money feud with Catt Sadler.
The longtime host quit her "dream job" after learning her male counterpart made double her salary.
Debra Messing brought the issue up on the Golden Globes red carpet, telling Giuliana Rancic: We want people to start having the conversations that women are just as valuable as men."
The actors have yet to speak out on the issue.
