Hollywood has been left rocked after reports of a significant pay gap between the male and female stars of All The Money In The World, during the reshoots without Kevin Spacey.

It's been speculated that Michelle Williams was paid just $US80 ($NZ110) per day to reshoot scenes, whereas her male co-star Mark Wahlberg reportedly got paid $200,000 ($NZ278,000) per day.

The kidnapping drama directed by Ridley Scott was hastily reshot in November after a series of sexual misconduct allegations were made public against Kevin Spacey, who previously starred in the drama as billionaire J. Paul Getty.

In December, Scott told USA Today that the undertaking was aided by the fact that "everyone did it for nothing... They all came in for free."

In the same piece, Blue Valentine actress Williams said she agreed to reshoot the scenes for free because she "would do anything" for Ridley Scott.

"I hated that this man's time and expertise and gentlemanly-ness was going to be kind of for naught," she said.

"So when I got the phone call about the change of plans I was thrilled. I was enlivened, it picked me up off the couch a little bit and got me excited.

"I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort."

Now celebs are speaking out with outrage after its been revealed that Williams was possibly paid less than one percent of her male co-star's salary for the reshoot.

The founder of Women and Hollywood Melissa Siverstein tweeted; "On the day after display of female power at the #goldenglobes, I learned that there was an egregious pay gap between Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg for the All The Money In The World reshoot."

"Did they think this wouldn't come out? Unacceptable #TimesUp."

Actress Jessica Chastain tweeted her support of Williams, asking fans to "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."

Sony Pictures and Mark Wahlberg are yet to comment on the reported discrepancy.
