Mark Wahlberg has agreed to donate his $1.5 million fee for the All The Money In The World reshoots to the Time’s Up campaign.
Wahlberg announced on Saturday he would donate the money in the name of Williams to Time’s Up, the campaign initiative set up to help those who have suffered sexual assault, harassment or abuse in the workplace.
In a statement to the Associated Press Wahlberg said: “I 100% support the fight for fair pay.”
Talent agency William Morris Endeavor, who represent both Williams and Wahlberg, said they would donate an additional 500,000 to Time’s Up.
The Time’s Up campaign is a movement against sexual harassment that was founded at the start of January as a response to recent sexual harassment allegations in the media, film, and broadcasting.– (PA)
