Mark Wahlberg and his agency WME (William Morris Endeavor) made a decision to donate $ 2 million towards Time's Up legal defence fund in the name of Michelle Williams.

The actor and Williams' reshoot salaries sparked controversy after it was revealed that Williams received just $80 a day for reshoots, while Wahlberg received $1.5 million.

Plummer replaced Kevin Spacey, who was removed from Ridley Scott's film after multiple sexual assault allegations were made against him.

Both Wahlberg and Williams are represented by WME, and after the story of their wage discrepancy broke, Wahlberg announced yesterday that he would donate the entirety of his reshoot money to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams's name, saying in a posted statement that he "100% support [s] the fight for fair pay".

The Hollywood Reporter said Wahlberg and Williams' talent agency - William Morris Endeavor - is also contributing $500,000 to the cause.

She said, "Today isn't about me".

"Today is one of the most indelible days of my life because of Mark Wahlberg, WME and a community of women and men who share in this accomplishment".

Mark Wahlberg has donated his fee for reshoots on his latest film All The Money In The World to the Time's Up movement.

Rapp responded to Williams' statement on Twitter Saturday night, writing: "I'm very moved by Michelle Williams' kind words".

The Time's Up initiative was unveiled by more than 300 major actresses and female writers, directors, agents and other entertainment executives earlier this month. "I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I'm donating the United States dollars 1.5 million to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams' name". "It's crucial that this conversation continues within our community and we are committed to being part of the solution".
