Actor donates $1.5M after outcry over pay
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.
