The disclosure prompted instant outrage. Jessica Chastain, now starring in the Golden Globe-nominated "Molly's Game", called Williams a "brilliant" actress who "deserves more".

Judd Apatow added in a tweet of his own, "This is so messed up that it is nearly hard to believe". Almost", the producer-director-writer. "This is how this business works. This raises the question of why did Wahlberg get paid such a hefty amount while Michelle didn't. According to the newspaper, both actors had reshoots in their contacts and were in Europe filming for the same number of days.

Although The Wrap reported Wednesday that Wahlberg did not have reshoots included in his contract and therefore was able to negotiate more money for additional time, while Williams' contract did include reshoots, USA Today disputed that report.

Because of the circumstances, Williams quickly agreed to return. "There needs to be new language voiding deals made unless all people participate in the favored nations structure", she also.

The film was set to be released on Dec 25.

Imperative ultimately agreed to a $1.5 million payment.

Individual client contracts are not always discussed between agents who work at the same agency.

Actor Mark Wahlberg has made millions of dollars off the back of the Kevin Spacey sexual abuse scandal that has rocked Hollywood in recent months. Following the Sony hack during the fourth quarter of 2014, emails revealed that Sony had paid American Hustle female stars Amy Adams and Jennifer Lawrence considerably less than male stars Bradley Cooper, Jeremy Renner and Christian Bale.
