Mark Wahlberg has announced that he will donate the $1.5 million salary he earned reshooting scenes from All the Money in the World to the Times Up Legal Defence Fund.

The announcement follows the recent revelation that co-star Michelle Williams, earned only $1000 for reshooting the movie’s scenes. The 10-day reshoot was required when director Ridley Scott chose to replace Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plumber in the role.

“Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All The Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation,” said Wahlberg. “I 100 per cent 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.”

William Morris Endeavor talent agency announced it will also donate $500,000 to the Times Up fund, a coalition of women in Hollywood set up by stars such as Reese Witherspoon, America Ferrera and Shonda Rhimes to combat harassment in the industry, starting with a legal-defense fund for abuse victims.
