Mark Wahlberg donates $1.5M to Time's Up

A source told the newspaper that Wahlberg's contract included a co-star approval clause - and he used that to leverage a big payday.

The move was widely celebrated, and the filmmakers were praised for taking such a bold stance against sexual harassment (even if that stance was to preserve their own financial gains).

But the Oscar victor would not be allowed to step into the role until Wahlberg got his way, with the latter's lawyer writing a letter to financiers demanding the payment for his work over the Thanksgiving holiday. We reached out to the agency for comment - whether the agency should have given Michelle a heads-up that their other client was making a bundle while she was working for free.

"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", Wahlberg added.

In the wake of a USA Today report that while Wahlberg received an additional $1.5 million beyond his original salary, his costar Williams was given nothing but a per diem of about $1000.

Allegedly unbeknownst to Scott, Wahlberg's representatives later met with the two main financial backers of the project and demanded that their client be paid for the extra work.

Both actors are represented by the William Morris Endeavor agency.

She had previously said of the reshoot: "I said I'd be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me". Her agent's, for not negotiating hard enough on her behalf?

Mark Wahlberg has been roasted on social media all week long, following news that he took $1.5 million for his All the Money in the World rehoots, when his co-star Michelle Williams earned a lot less than that.

That was not just the story she was told, but the story reported to all of us.

Both Plummer and Williams were nominated for Golden Globes for their performances.

Amber Tamblyn quickly responded via Twitter, "Michelle Williams was paid 1% of what her male co-star made on her latest film".

Mark Wahlberg topped Forbes' list for being the highest paid actor in 2017.

The decision came less than a month before the planned release of the film, so the reshoots were organised hastily and depended on the cast effectively dropping whatever they were doing and agreeing to participate.

She later stated that her source is '100 percent reliable'. Scott said that apart from Plummer and the film crew, everyone had done the shoot essentially for free, which is now contradicted by reports of Wahlberg's salary.
