- Marisa Tomei is "Aunt May" in the new Spiderman movies
- She has won an Oscar for her work in My Cousin Vinny
- She is connecting with Pete Davidson over The King of Staten Island for not paying her
Marisa Tomei is calling out the production team for her work in The King of Staten Island, the comedy-drama loosely based on Pete Davidson's life. While speaking to Rolling Stone magazine, the 57-year-old revealed she has yet to be paid!
Despite no pay, Marisa Tomei wouldn't change the past
The film, which starred Pete Davidson and was directed by Judd Apatow, was a huge success during its release in 2020, and although it was critically and audience-loved, Tomei still hasn't seen a dime for her work!
"I actually just was talking to Pete today," she told the outlet. "I was like, 'I never got paid for that. Did you? In this age of transparency, can we talk?'"
Tomei added though that despite it, she had a great time and wouldn't change it.
"But despite that, I had a rollicking good time. Judd [Apatow]’s approach to improv, which is extensive, I was intimidated. I’m with all these stand-ups. It was so freeing. Really changed how I approach each character going forward," she said.
Although Tomei didn't go into further detail about not getting paid, she did comment on the fact that Pete Davidson has made his mark with some of the world's biggest female celebrities, including current girlfriend Kim Kardashian, Ariana Grande and Kate Beckinsale, to name a few.
"He’s just so f---g real, and he’s unfiltered, but very sensitive. So he’s almost an irresistible combination," she said.
She added laughing, "And he's good-looking, even though I played - let’s just put the mom thing aside. Let's, like, never mention that again."
