The Golden Globe-nominated film had to bring back Michelle Williams, Mark Wahlberg and more stars when Christopher Plummer was hired to reshoot Kevin Spacey's scenes last year after the production abruptly cut ties with the House of Cards actor amid sexual misconduct allegations. On Tuesday, Molly's Game star Jessica Chastain tweeted concern that Williams was reportedly paid much, much less than Wahlberg.
"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 tweet by author and women's equality advocate Melissa Silverstein. "I really hope that with everything coming to light, she was paid fairly. She's a brilliant actress and is wonderful in the film."

The discrepancy over reshoot pay on the film dates back to a Washington Post story in late November, which reported that Wahlberg had been paid $2 million for 10 days of reshoots, while the other actors, including Williams, earned figures of "hundreds of thousands of dollars or less."
However, in December, USA Today quoted the film's director, Ridley Scott, as saying that Wahlberg and Williams did their reshoots for free.
"Everyone did it for nothing," Scott said, the publication reports. "They all came in for free."
Plummer, Williams and Scott themselves all were nominated at this year's Golden Globes for the film, and on Tuesday, Plummer earned a BAFTA nomination for his role as oil tycoon J. Paul Getty.
