As we reported, Mark Wahlberg got $1.5 million for reshoots on Ridley Scott‘s All the Money in the World. After it was reported the actor has decided to donate the entire sum to Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in costar Michelle Williams‘ name. Wahlberg said in a statement,
William Morris Endeavor Entertainment, the talent agency that represents both Wahlberg and Williams, also announced it would be making a $500,000 donation to the fund, again in Williams’ name. The organization had already donated $1 million to the fund earlier this month.
Actress Eva Longoria tweeted a thank you to the actor for supporting the movement.
The Time’s Up fund is a fund to provide subsidized legal support to people who have dealt with sexual harassment in the workplace. It is administered by the National Women’s Law Center.
The reshoots to the movie came after director Ridley Scott decided to replace Kevin Spacey following allegations of sexual misconduct by Spacey.
I hope this donation gets reported as widely as the pay disparity and Wahlberg is given proper credit.
