Mark Wahlberg is trying to right his wrong after it was revealed he made 1,500 times more than Michelle Williams for the “All The Money in the World” reshoots.
Wahlberg decided to donate the $1.5 million he received to do the reshoots on the film to the #TimesUp legal fund in Michelle Williams’ name — Williams was paid just $80 per day to do her scenes a second time around.
“Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All The Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation,” Wahlberg announced on Twitter Saturday.
“I 100% 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,” he continued.
The 46-year-old actor reportedly was able to get a bigger paycheck because of the fact his original contract said he would not be available for reshoots, according to The Wrap.

William Morris Endeavor, the agency that represents both of the actors, also announced it would pledge $500,000 to #TimesUp, according to Deadline.
“All The Money in the World” had to do reshoots after Kevin Spacey was booted from the film following accusations of sexually inappropriate behavior by a number of men.
Director Ridley Scott replaced Spacey’s role with actor Christopher Plummer, who was nominiated for a Golden Globe for his perfomance. Williams was also nominated for a Golden Globe for her performance.
