  • After outcry over pay disparity, Mark Wahlberg says he'll donate $1.5M

As the pay gap debate continues to gain steam in the wake of news that Michelle Williams was paid less than 1% of Mark Wahlberg's paycheck for the All the Money in the World reshoots, more details emerge about Wahlberg's deal over his fee.

Another Hollywood insider says Wahlberg's lawyer formally vetoed the Oscar victor in a letter to financiers until his demand for additional payment was met.

He had final say on co-star approval, and he used this, with sources claiming he wouldn't okay Plummer until he was paid the $1.5 million, in a plot that mirrors what happens in the movie itself.

Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million, to re-shoot scenes for the film "All the Money in the World', after Kevin Spacey was cut-out of that film due to sexual harassment allegations". This source claimed both actors' contracts included reshoots and they filmed almost the same number of days.

The kidnapping thriller made headlines in November after director Ridley Scott announced that he would reshoot sections of the film to replace disgraced actor and alleged sexual abuser Kevin Spacey with Christopher Plummer.

Wahlberg said he "100 percent" supports fair pay in Hollywood. Actor Michelle Williams attends the 19th Annual Post-Golden Globes Party hosted by Warner Bros.

William Morris Endeavor, the talent agency that represents both Wahlberg and Williams, said it will also donate $500,000 to the fund.

And while it was previously said the 46-year-old didn't have reshoots written into his contract so he had more room to negotiate, it's been spilled that he and Michelle both did!

A controversy over fees for All the Money in the World's reshoots has sparked a deep discussion on the dynamics of the gender pay gap.

The American Broadcasting Company reported that last December that Williams told the broadcaster she was in favour of the reshoots because she did not want the film to be tainted by the Spacey scandal, and declined an additional salary. "He took a pay cut, so that's really nice and generous of him. I wonder if the studio or Wahlberg will do something to make the situation less insane", he wrote.
