Speak with Rolling StoneTomei revealed that she recently reached out to Davidson after realizing she hadn’t been compensated for her role.
“I thought, ‘I never got paid for this. Do you have? In this age of transparency, can we talk?’” Tomei said.
theIndependent has reached out to Universal for comment.
Tomei added that while she reportedly hasn’t been paid for the film yet, she was having a “hilarious good time” directing the feature film.
“[With director] Judd [Apatow]’s approach to improvisation – which is extensive – I was intimidated,” she said. “I am with all these insurgents. It was so liberating.”
the Spider-Man: No Way Home and My cousin Vinny star added that the film “really changed how I approach each character going forward.”
The King of Staten Island can be viewed now on Sky and NOW.
