Mark Wahlberg is busy with numerous upcoming projects, so we will admire him on the big screen soon.
For the film Pain and Gain, Mark Wahlberg scored an excellent form in a very short time. Of course, this caused rumors that the actor took steroids.
For the role of bodybuilder, Wahlberg became even more muscular than in the time of his youth, when he was known primarily as a model of underwear. This surprised many his fans, but the representative of the actor said that Mark never took any mixtures to build muscle.
Although the film tells the story of the steroids, Mark took it as a challenge, he wanted to achieve the same results with continuous training, and his partner on the set Dwayne Rock Johnson inspired Mark to engage in sport harder.
Despite his muscular appearance, Mark Wahlberg joked in conversation with Leonardo DiCaprio that the days when they were considered the sexiest guys of Hollywood were already in the past.
For the sake of an interesting role, Mark Wahlberg is ready for any sacrifice. So, for the filming in the movie The Player he had to do quite opposite thing – to lose a lot of weight. The actor showed excellent willpower and dropped about 30 kilograms.
In the movie, Mark plays a college professor and avid gambler Jim Bennett. According to the scenario, this character does not have an outstanding physical form. Therefore, the film’s director Rupert Wyatt asked Wahlberg to lose as much weight as he could.
Mark already had lost weight from 89 kilograms to 62 – that was his most minimal weight, which he reached for the sake of the movie Boogie Nights. So, the actor decided to beat this record.
To achieve such results, the actor resorted to radical methods. If he does something, he cannot stop. Mark dedicate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to his aim. In the first six weeks, he just stopped eating. He only drank a little during the day. And then he started training two or three times a day.
This approach, of course, gave a quick and noticeable result. Alas, the actor not only lost weight, but also got an unhealthy complexion. No energy, no nutrition. In the studio, people constantly complained that he had blue lips. But, actually, what did they expect? – He didn’t eat at all.
Such radical changes are, of course, impressive, but are heath sacrifice worth big money? This is the question…
