Over 22,000 People Sign Petition Urging Matt Smith to Donate Salary to Time's Up



After it came out that Matt Smith was paid more for his role on The Crown than the star of the show Claire Foy, people are urging Smith to pull a Mark Wahlberg and donate a portion of his salary to Time's Up. Wahlberg donated the $1.5 million to Time's Up, his payment for reshoots, when it was revealed Michelle Williams, the lead of the film, only received several thousand for reshoots.

Producers for The Crown have confirmed there will be no pay gap for season three, which will star Olivia Coleman. Smith has not responded to the petition, while Foy will next be seen in the Steven Soderbergh film Unsane and the Ryan Gosling/Damien Chazelle Neil Armstrong biopic First Man.
