More details revealed into Mark's massive paycheck!

Mark Wahlberg really played his cards to score a massive paycheck for All The Money In The World reshoots!

As we previously reported, the actor was reportedly paid $1.5 million, while his costar Michelle Williams only made $80 a day for the 10-day shoot!

According to USA Today, he refused to approve Christopher Plummer coming in to replace Kevin Spacey unless he got paid big time! Two sources say "co-star approval" was written into his contract:

"What he said was, 'I will not approve Christopher Plummer unless you pay me.' And that's how he (expletive) them."

A different insider divulged Mark's lawyer actually went so far as to formally veto Plummer's appearance in a letter to the movie's financiers to push the demand for the pay bump.

And while it was previously said the 46-year-old didn't have reshoots written into his contract so he had more room to negotiate, it's been spilled that he and Michelle both did! On top of that, they were both filming in Europe for about the same number of days.

Wow.

This just sheds so much light on how these costars ended up getting paid so differently — but we have yet to hear directly from either actor about the massive gap.
