Mark Wahlberg donates reshoot fee to Time's Up defence fund
From BBC - January 13, 2018

The actor Mark Wahlberg has donated $1.5m to the Time's Up legal defence fund.

The move comes after it emerged that Wahlberg was paid $1.5m to reshoot scenes for the film All The Money in the World.

His co-star Michelle Williams was paid $80 a day for the extra work.

Scenes had to be reshot after Kevin Spaceywas removed from the completed film following the allegations of predatory sexual behaviour against him.

The Time's Up legal defence fund will offer support to people who have experienced sexual harassment, abuse or assault in the workplace.

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.

The issue of sexual harassment and abuse has risen in prominence after allegations were made in 2017 against figures such as the film director Harvey Weinstein and actor Kevin Spacey.
