For nearly a week, people have been upset that Mark Wahlberg made $1.5 million to reshoot scenes from All the Money in the World when disgraced star Kevin Spacey was abruptly fired and replaced by Christopher Plummer less than two months before the films release, while Michelle Williams made less than a $1,000 even though they have the same agency. They used excuses like it was in his contract and he doesn’t work for free.
Well after a week of rightfully being bashed, Marky Mark broke his silence today. He said, “Over the last few days my Reshoot fee for ‘All the Money in the World’ has become an important topic of conversation. I 100% support the fight for fair pay and I’m donating the $1.5M to the Time’s Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams’ name.” WME, their agency, donated a $500,000 along with his $1.5 million.
I called the donation on Monday, and I am glad I was right. He did the right thing.
