Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg had a pay gap of 1,500 times for reshooting scenes for Ridley Scott's thriller, "All the Money in the World" after Kevin Spacey was replaced amid sexual misconduct allegations, USA Today reported.

This is according to three anonymous sources familiar with the situation who told USA Today that Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million to reshoot his scenes while Williams earned $80 per diem, which amounted to less than $1,000.

Over 20 scenes for the kidnapping drama had to be reshot at the last minute after multiple counts of sexual assault and harassment allegations against Spacey arose, forcing the director to place Christopher Plummer in his role instead.

At the time, Scott said the reshoot did not cost much as cast members voluntarily worked for nothing.

"They all came in free," Scott said, according to The Huffington Post. "Christopher had to get paid. But Michelle, no. Me, no. I wouldn't do that."

While no mention was made of Wahlberg, the report noted that Williams agreed to forgo a salary for the extra days of work.

"For me, it was an instant yes," the actress said of the reshoots according to Today. "I was so relieved. I'd just been heartsick for weeks thinking about how this thing that we loved making was going to be all for naught."

The Guardian reported that Williams was not informed of Wahlberg's fee.

News of the pay disparity comes at a time when the entertainment industry continues to be shaken by claims of harassment, assault and gender inequality sparked by the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct debacle.

In response, many Hollywood figures have taken to social media to express their disproval.
