Mark Wahlberg says he is going to be donating $1.5 million dollars to the Time’s Up Legal Defense, in Michelle Williams name.
The two were co-stars in the movie All the Money in the World. The donation stems from criticism the film received because of the pay-gap between Wahlberg and Williams, for the re-shoots. Wahlberg received $1.5 million, and Williams received about $1,000.
The re-shoots were filmed after director Ridley Scott replaced Kevin Spacey in the lead role of J Paul Getty with Christopher Plummer, less than two months before the film’s world premiere.
Spacey was the subject of a number of accusations of sexual misconduct, the first by actor Anthony Rapp, who alleged he was 14 when Spacey sexually harassed him.
Mark Wahlberg has since issued a statement explaining his choice to donate.
