Mark Wahlberg Donates 'All the Money in the World' Reshoots Salary to Time's Up

Mark Wahlberg announced Saturday that he would donate $1.5 million his salary for All the Money in the World reshoots to Time's Up.

The actor's donation comes following reports that Wahlberg's co-star Michelle Williams was only paid a per diem of approximately $1,000 a day less than 1 percent of Wahlberg's wage for the reshoots, which were necessitated when Christopher Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey in a key role. The disparity in salary highlighted the gender wage gap that continues to plague Hollywood.

"Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All the Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation," Wahlberg said in a statement to the Hollywood Reporter. "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."

All the Money in the World director Ridley Scott, who also worked for per diem for the reshoots, had said in interviews that his actors (besides Plummer) "did it for nothing," although USA Today later revealed that Wahlberg's agent negotiated the actor's $1.5 million fee for reshoots. Wahlberg also reportedly threatened to veto Plummer's casting unless he was paid the $1.5 million salary.

4. He was shamed into it. Not going to give him any praise

Of all the talent who had to re-shoot, he was the only one who got paid big bucks, and it was because he held the production hostage. His deal was made in secret.

Before anyone starts with the "but of course he got paid more. Michelle's a nobody and she didn't negotiate," it's worth noting that director Ridley Scott, who also didn't negotiate but is certainly a SOMEBODY, also did it for nothing.

Wahlberg was the only one who demanded money. Greedy jerk.

2. That's putting your money where your mouth is!

I respect him for taking these actions. Others should do the same if possible.

6. "donation comes after reports" - not during negotiations and threats to veto PLUMMER's casting
