The Dallas Morning News - - Nation -

NEW YORK — Fol­low­ing an out­cry over a sig­nif­i­cant dis­par­ity in pay be­tween co-stars, Mark Wahlberg agreed Satur­day to do­nate the $1.5 mil­lion he earned for reshoots for All the Money in

the World to the sex­ual mis­con­duct de­fense ini­tia­tive Time’s Up.

Wahlberg said he would do­nate the money in the name of his co-star, Michelle Wil­liams, who re­port­edly made less than $1,000 on the reshoots.

The 10 days of reshoots were nec­es­sary af­ter Kevin Spacey was re­placed by Christo­pher Plum­mer when ac­cu­sa­tions of sex­ual mis­con­duct sur­faced against Spacey.

Wil­liams had no im­me­di­ate com­ment Satur­day.
