Enter Scandal No. 2. Williams and Wahlberg both agreed to do more work on the film, but not for the same terms. The two stars had reportedly already been paid below their normal rate for the movie , and Wahlberg was not content to come back for union minimum. Williams, on the other hand, was under the impression everyone was doing their part for minimal pay to make the project work , so she accepted a per diem of $80 for an extra 10 days of work -- a total of about $1000 -- whereas Wahlberg got $1.5 million.
