After outcry, Mark Wahlberg and his agency donate $2 million to Time's Up  3 Months ago

"Today isn’t about me," she said in a statement sent to USA TODAY Saturday evening by her rep, Mara Buxbaum. "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."

WME said the conversation over the pay discrepancy is "a reminder that those of us in a position of influence have a responsibility to challenge inequities, including the gender wage gap."

"It’s crucial that this conversation continues within our community and we are committed to being part of the solution," the company's statement continued.

In an exclusive report, USA TODAY first reported the pay discrepancy Tuesday, revealing Williams was paid an $80 per diem totaling less than $1,000 for the reshoots while Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million. That math works out to Williams being paid less than one-tenth of 1% of her male co-star.

On Saturday, WME noted the $500,000 donation in Williams' name is in addition to the $1 million pledge the company made to the organization earlier this month.

The pay gap controversy caused an outcry in Hollywood, with stars such as Jessica Chastain and Eva Longoria and more expressing outrage over the news on social media.

On Thursday night, Olivia Munn roasted Wahlberg from the stage of the Critics' Choice Awards during a sarcastic toast segment.

Williams called the outcome of her story going public "one of the most indelible days of my life" and publicly saluted Anthony Rapp, whose early allegations against Spacey opened the door for others to come forward last fall.

"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," said the actress. "Anthony Rapp, for all the shoulders you stood on, now we stand on yours."
