Mark Wahlberg made one scary confession about Hollywood his wife will hate

Jul 8, 2024

Mark Wahlberg is one of the few outspoken Christians in the movie business.

That sometimes puts him in uncomfortable situations. 

And Mark Wahlberg made one scary confession about Hollywood his wife will hate. 

Mark Wahlberg says movie romances can be weird 

Actor Mark Wahlberg has done just about everything in Hollywood from comedies to dramas.

In his next movie, he gets to live out every guy’s dream. 

He’s starring alongside Academy Award-winning actress Halle Berry in the upcoming Netflix film, The Union.

Wahlberg’s character is an average Joe who rekindles his romance with his high school sweetheart, played by Berry, who’s become a spy.

“. . . Halle, her and I have known each other for such a long time, and this movie is going to be so great because it’s every guy’s fantasy, to think that they got a shot with Halle Berry,” Wahlberg told Fox News Digital.

He said the movie is about getting second chances.

“They were childhood sweethearts, and they come back together,” Wahlberg said. “He basically waited 25 years for her to come back, walk back through that door and into his life, and it happens, and there isn’t anything he wouldn’t do to prove himself to her if he got a second chance. For me, that was the whole motivation of the character: just do anything he could to not screw it up again.”

Wahlberg has been married to his wife Rhea Durham for 15 years.

It still gets “a little weird” having an onscreen romance for The Departed star. 

“I think it’s a little weird anyway when you’re portraying some sort of romance onscreen, it’s not normal, but my wife knows that she is my everything,” Wahlberg said. “She is the most special woman in the world.”

Mark Wahlberg left Hollywood for Nevada for his family 

Wahlberg is one of many actors who’ve left Los Angeles behind to find a better life for their families elsewhere.

He moved his family to Las Vegas, Nevada for the benefit of his four kids.

Wahlberg posted pictures on social media of him going on a shopping trip to a boutique store with his daughter Ella in South Carolina where she attends school at Clemson University.

“Dad has only a few purposes in life, to do what they want when they want me to do it. And I don’t mind doing that, we had an amazing time down in Charleston,” Wahlberg said. “Only for her, her sister, her mom, will I go into a store like that.”

Wahlberg is also challenging himself with his role in the upcoming Mel Gibson-directed film, Flight Risk.

He’s taking a rare turn as the villain in the movie.

His character is a hitman who’s flying an FBI informant to trial.

“I’m not interested in being a pilot. I don’t like flying at all, but I was very interested in playing a villain again,” Wahlberg stated. “I hadn’t done that since Fear 30 years ago.”

The 1996 thriller Fear was Wahlberg’s breakout role in Hollywood.

“To be able to go back there and play somebody who is [a villain] . . . it’s an amazing character,” Wahlberg remarked. “I think people are going to be shocked when they see the movie. It’s going to be a good one this summer.”
