Last month, director Sir Ridley Scott dropped House of Cards actor Kevin Spacey from his upcoming film, All the Money in the World, after the star was accused of sexual misconduct by several male sources.
As a result, the filmmaker brought on Canadian star Christopher Plummer to play Getty Oil Company magnate J. Paul Getty instead, and reshot several scenes with the film's stars, Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg.
However, it was only during an interview yesterday morning that 37-year-old actress Williams shed light on the fact both her and her co-star Wahlberg donated their time to filming the scenes again out of the goodness of their own hearts for free.
In an interview with USA Today, Williams - who received a Golden Globe nomination for her role in the film - explained: 'I just thought that this experience that we had all treasured was going to be essentially flushed down the toilet.'
Speaking of director Ridley, she added: 'I hated that this man's time and expertise and gentlemanly-ness was going to be kind of for naught, so when I got the phone call about the change of plans I was thrilled.
'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.'

The film - out on Christmas Day, just three days after it's initial scheduled release date - follows the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Charlie Plummer) and the desperate attempt by his devoted mother Gail (Williams) to convince his billionaire grandfather (Plummer) to pay the ransom.
The Mail reports Ridley spent spent $10 million reshooting 22 scenes in the drama with his reshuffled cast, and was grateful the stars refused to receive additional money for the services.
'Everyone did it for nothing. They all came in for free,' he told USA Today.
In October, accusations were levied against Spacey, including that of Star Trek: Discovery's Anthony Rapp who alleged the actor made a 'sexual advance' on him when he was just 14.
Following the news, the American Beauty actor came out as gay in the same statement as offering 'the sincerest apology' to the star, causing outrage on Twitter.
