Michelle Williams Responds To Mark Wahlberg’s Reshoot Donation To #TimesUp In Her Name

no title

As we reported yesterday, Mark Wahlberg did the right thing after a too-long controversy about All The Money In The World reshoots, and donated the money he made there to the Time’s Up movement in co-star Michelle Williams‘ name.

And the gesture wasn’t lost on Williams herself, who responded in a statement released later on Saturday about what happened — and what it means for women in the entertainment industry.

Williams said in a statement (below):

“Today isn’t about me. My fellow actresses stood by me and stood up for me, my activist friends taught me to use my voice, and the most powerful men in charge, they listened and they acted. If we truly envision an equal world, it takes equal effort and sacrifice. Today is one of the most indelible days of my life because of Mark Wahlberg, WME and a community of women and men who share in this accomplishment. Anthony Rapp, for all the shoulders you stood on, now we stand on yours.”

Nice!!!

So cool.

Again, a very nice (and needed) gesture by Wahlberg, but the big question here is… will women FINALLY, consistently make the same money as men?

And will other Hollywood stars start to finally realize how important this issue is to women???

Let’s hope.
