Mark Wahlberg has donated $1.5 million to the Time’s Up legal defense fund.

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

Mark Wahlberg’s female co-star, Michelle Williams, was paid $80 a day for the extra work.

Scenes had to be reshot after Kevin Spacey was removed from the completed movie following the allegations of assault and inappropriate behavior against him.

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

The campaign is a movement against harassment that was founded at the start of January as a response to recent harassment allegations in the media, film, and broadcasting.

Kevin Spacey Erased from Completed Movie All the Money in the World

Kevin Spacey Fired from House of Cards

The issue of harassment and abuse has risen in prominence after allegations were made in 2017 against figures such as Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and Kevin Spacey.

In December 2017, Time magazine named the “Silence Breakers” as its “Person of the Year”.

The “Silence Breakers” were women and men who spoke out against abuse and harassment.

In 2017, the #MeToo hashtag led to women and men from all walks of life opening up on social media about their experiences of these issues.

Last week, at the Golden Globes awards ceremony, stars such as Oprah Winfrey spoke candidly about the discrimination that women face.

The issue of the equal pay and a “gender pay gap” has become a prominent issue across many sectors in recent months.


Beyonce took to the stage at Sunday’s Super Bowl with trademark style, with an all-singing, all-dancing spectacular greatest hits set for the half time show, which culminated in her being joined on stage by Destiny’s Child bandmates Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams.

Beyonce, 31, sported a plunging leather Rubin Singer corset and skirt which she stripped off to reveal a lace underlay during a slick, energetic show packed with special effects at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

However, her show may have taken up a large amount of electricity, with the power in the stadium going out shortly after the 14 minute set.

Beyonce emerged onstage singing lines from her R&B hit Love on Top under a giant lit up silhouette of herself, with a group of fans running on to the field to watch next to the lit up stage in the shape of two facing profiles of the singer.

Black over-the-knee socks over fishnet tights and high heeled ankle boots completed Beyonce’s sexy outfit designed by little known New York based Rubin Singer.

The stage was dark while fire and lights burst from the sides as she began hit Crazy in Love, complete with a guitar flaming as it played out its solo.

The clearly pumped up star even blew a kiss to the crowd, before beginning her show in front of fireworks and light effects on video screens.

Beyonce’s spectacular performance provided an elaborate contrast to the on-field sporting action between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers, with special effects including a light show, fireworks, and kaleidoscopic multiple video footage of the star.

Her background singers helped out as Beyonce danced around the stage throughout most of her performance.

There was a backing track to help fill in when she wasn’t singing – and there were long stretches when she let it play as she performed elaborate dance moves with a swarm of background dancers and band members.

Beyonce performed a number of hits including End of Time, and Baby Boy before being joined by Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland who wore similar revealing black outfits.

Kelly Rowland sported a leather leotard with identical stockings and boots, while Michelle Williams sported a ultra short black miniskirt over her slinky leather number.

Michelle Williams had previously denied the band would reunite for the event, saying she had a prior commitment to appear in the musical Fela.

So there was clear delight from the crowd when they took the stage, singing with the diva on their massive hits Bootylicious and Independent Woman, along with Beyonce’s smash hit Single Ladies.

However, the trio left out their more recent effort, the slow number Nuclear – the first new Destiny’s Child recording in eight years, which was released last month.

But after the show, there were rumblings from critics and fans that Kelly and Michelle’s vocals were unable to be heard over Beyonce’s.

To close the 14-minute set, Michelle Williams and Kelly Rowland left Beyonce to perform emotional show-stopper Halo.
