Reflecting on her career in an interview with Rolling Stone, Tomei said she had recently spoken to Davidson about the project, which was released during lockdown in 2020, having been shot the previous year.
"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?'," she said.
Tomei doesn't seem to have any hard feelings for those involved in the movie, though, saying she "had a rollicking good time" making it.
She said: "[With director] 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."

Tomei was also asked about Saturday Night Live cast member Davidson's history of dating famous women — most recently Kim Kardashian.
"He’s just so f***ing real, and he’s unfiltered, but very sensitive," Tomei said.
She added: "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."
Tomei was most recently seen when she returned to the role of Aunt May for Spider-Man: No Way Home, which has become one of the most successful movies of all time.

"It’s a cathartic film because there’s so much about healing in it," she said.
"And it’s caught this moment in time: How can we reweave ourselves? I guess that was a spider pun, not even intended."
