• Marisa Tomei already received 100% of her pay for "The King of Staten Island" before they filmed, according to an insider
  • The source with knowledge of the situation said the Oscar winner received over a million dollars
  • Tomei recently claimed that she did not receive payment for the project that also starred Pete Davidson

Marisa Tomei had already received her payment for her role in "The King of Staten Island" despite claiming she had not been paid for it yet.

In a recent interview, the "Spider-Man" actress claimed that she was not paid for her role in the 2020 American comedy-drama and wondered if Pete Davidson already received his. A source close to Davidson, who co-wrote and starred in the movie, denied Tomie's claim.

"Marisa Tomei was 100 percent paid for the movie. In fact, she was paid upfront, over a million dollars," the unnamed tipster familiar with the situation told Page Six. "She’s clearly confused."

The 57-year-old star played the character of Margie Carlin, an ER nurse in the movie. She is the mom of Davidson's character, Scott Carlin, an aspiring tattoo artist.

In an interview with Rolling Stone Thursday, the Oscar winner shared that she called Kim Kardashian's boyfriend the same day to ask about their pay.

"I actually just was talking to Pete today, because I was like, ‘I never got paid for that. Did you?'" Tomei said. "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," she added.

She also praised Davidson's appeal and talent. According to her, the 28-year-old comedian was "just 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 jokingly added.

When Davidson was spotted holding hands with the "Keeping Up With the Kardashian" star last year, many couldn't believe that they were dating. According to several netizens, the Skims founder was out of his league. Some even joked that he should hold a dating masterclass.

Supermodel Emily Ratajkowski defended the "Saturday Night Live" alum and explained what women found in Davidson appealing.

"He's got the height. Obviously, women find him very attractive," she told Seth Meyers. "He seems super charming. He’s vulnerable. He’s lovely. His fingernail polish is awesome. He looks good!"
