Mark Wahlberg's salary from his All the Money in the World reshoots is going to Time's Up.
The actor revealed on Saturday that he would be donating the $1.5 million he negotiated to reshoot scenes after Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey in the film to the Time's Up initiative in Michelle Williams' name.
Controversy over Wahlberg and Williams' reshoot salaries heightened earlier this week, when Jessica Chastain tweeted that Williams received just $80 a day for reshoots, compared to Wahlberg's millions. It was later revealed that Williams volunteered to give up her reshoot salary.
“Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All the Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation. I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I’m donating the $1.5 million to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams’ name," Walhberg said in a statement obtained by ET, as his agency, WME, also pledged to donate money to the fund.
"The current conversation is a reminder that those of us in a position of influence have a responsibility to challenge inequities, including the gender wage gap. In recognition of the pay discrepancy on the All the Money in the World reshoots, WME is donating an additional $500,000 to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams’ name, following our $1 million pledge to the organization earlier this month," the agency said. "It’s crucial that this conversation continues within our community and we are committed to being part of the solution."
