Wahlberg and WME are making the donation in the name of Michelle Williams, the co-star paid 1 percent of what Wahlberg was on 'All the Money in the World' reshoots.
Bowing to an outcry over the wage disparity on the reshoots of All the Money in the World, Mark Wahlberg and his agency William Morris Endeavor have agreed to donate $2 million to the Time's Up fund to combat harassment and pay inequities in Hollywood.
"Over the last few days my reshoot fee for All the Money in the World has become an important topic of conversation," Wahlberg said in a statement. "I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and Im donating the $1.5 million to the Times Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams name.
WME is making a $500,000 donation as well.

Good flick. She was very good in my view.
Did Spacey already get paid for his time filming a movies he did not appear in?
If so shouldn’t he give the money back, or donate it to victims of pedophilic rape?
I’m sure Spacey got paid. He did the work.
He should have given to her. That way he doesn’t get a tax credit and she has to pay taxes on the income.
He should give back to some worthy charity rather than these self serving Hollywood types and as a plus it’s tax deductible.
How is this his fault?
Shakedown and not even a reach around.
Stupid - this was blackmail plain and simple.
What will the money be used for anyway? Further lawsuits and propaganda?
Because vagina apparently.
Him, I’ve heard of.
First off, this this is Hollywood, so they can pay actors what they choose and base it on what audiences are willing to see. I assume Michelle Williams signed a contract and knew what she would be paid.
And Wahlberg, no matter what you think of him, is clearly a bigger star and name than Michelle Williams.
He was a fool to do this. This only invites more of this stupidity.
All that said, I am quite happy to see Hollywood eating their own. Good for them. Keep it up.
Sounds like his co-star needs a better agent.
She has a vagina, Jim.
Good for Mark Wahlberg. But really, Michelle Williams needs a new agent.
At one time she was kinda cute.
Then she married Heath Ledger who took a toxic combination of substances. He did not survive it. Didn’t quite make it to 29. Seems like a lot of what killed him was legal, IF prescribed but a lethal combination of several at one time.
I never saw the movie but he played one of the gays in “Brokeback Mountain” and later The Joker in a Batman flick.
Matthew 20:1-16 comes to mind.
