In the wake of a controversy sparked by reports that Mark Wahlberg earned roughly $1.5 million for reshoots on the set of "All the Money in the World" while costar Michelle Williams was paid only a fraction of that amount, Wahlberg and the agency that represents him, William Morris Endeavor, announced Saturday that they would be donating $2 million to Time's Up, a legal defense fund set up to combat inequality and harassment 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 obtained by the Los Angeles Times. "I 100 percent support the fight for fair pay and I'm donating the $1.5 million to the Time's Up Legal Defense Fund in Michelle Williams' name."

WME, which also represents Williams, announced that it would be donating $500,000 to Time's Up.
