The filmmaker, cast and crew raced to reshoot scenes in November (17) in an ambitious attempt to keep to the movie's December release schedule, and Michelle confesses it was her daughter, Matilda, who pushed her to go back to work over the US holiday.

Clarke's co-star Kit Harington was present, but had stepped out to the restroom. Just halfway through the gala, US$3 million was raised.

Williams and Wahlberg are represented by the same talent agency, William Morris Endeavor, a detail that Bush was quick to point on in her tweet.

"They could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted", she said of what she was willing to do for the reshoots.

This would contradict director Ridley Scott's remarks to USA Today in December that "everyone did it for nothing". In November previous year, it was reported that Wahlberg was paid at least $2 million for ten days of work. "Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort". Many wore pins that read Time's Up, the name of a new coalition in Hollywood that aims to end the prevalence of sexual harassment that led to the #MeToo movement and to create gender equality.

Mark Wahlberg reportedly held up production on "All the Money in the World" reshoots until he got his $1.5 million payday.

"The thing with pay inequality is it's one branch on the power tree", she said. The people briefed on the matter said that she did so believing that other participants had made the same decision.

As per a report by USA Today, Mark Wahlberg's team negotiated a hefty deal after they were approached for sudden re-shoots.
