Marisa Tomei is a well-known actress. Her recent appearance in the movie Spider-Man: No Way Home surely helped to enhance her popularity even further. Marisa recently said that she wasn’t paid for her work, but a source says something different.
Marisa Tomei recently claimed that she had yet to be paid for her role in “The King of Staten Island,” a 2020 comedy. Now a source close to Pete Davidson, the film’s co-writer and actor, claims that the Oscar winner was paid before filming ever started. “Marisa Tomei was 100 percent paid for the movie. In fact, she was paid upfront, over a million dollars,” a source close to the situation told Page Six. “She’s clearly confused.”
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Tomei claimed that she had to contact the “Saturday Night Live” star to inquire about being shortchanged on her salary for the film, which is a semi-autobiographical account of his life following the death of his father, firefighter Scott Davidson, on Sept. 11, 2001. In the film, she was cast as his mother.
“I actually just was talking to Pete today, because I was like, ‘I never got paid for that. Did you? In this age of transparency, can we talk? But despite that, I had a rollicking good time. [With director] Judd [Apatow’s] approach to improv — which is extensive — I was intimidated. I’m with all these stand-up [comics]. It was so freeing. Really changed how I approach each character going forward.”
However, Tomei continued to praise Davidson as “so f–king real, and he’s unfiltered but very sensitive.” “So he’s almost an irresistible combination. And he’s good-looking, even though I played … let’s just put the mom thing aside. Let’s, like, never mention that again,” she joked.
