After an outcry over the pay discrepancy between Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams for reshoots for All The Money In The World, both Wahlberg and the agency at the centre of the controversy - WME - have bowed to public pressure.
In a statement released to media today, Wahlberg said that he "100% supports 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." WME, meanwhile, will add an additional $500,000 to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund, stating that they "are committed to being part of the solution."
Williams was paid just 1% of Wahlberg's fee for reshoots on the film, with details emerging that Wahlberg held up approval of Christopher Plummer as a suitable replacement for Kevin Spacey in order to ensure his demands were met. While it isn't known whether or not Williams was told about Wahlberg's pay demands for reshoots, both actors are represented by the same agency.
All The Money In The World is currently in cinemas.
