Mark Wahlberg is in damn good shape. Well, as an action movie actor, he kind of has to be. However, his workout routine goes above and beyond what would be expected of most A-listers. And when the 47-year-old shared his regime online, reactions were mixed. Some were concerned, some were impressed and others just mocked. Whatever your opinion on Wahlberg’s schedule, though, his revelation certainly made an impact.
It probably won’t surprise you to learn that Wahlberg did some work as a model before becoming an actor. His body was impressive even then, and it got him noticed. Back in 1992 he did a series of underwear advertisements taken by famous fashion photographer Herb Ritts for Calvin Klein. Then, the year after that, he picked up his first acting role in the TV movie The Substitute.
And, of course, bigger roles gradually came to the star. By the Noughties Wahlberg had established a name for himself with films such as Three Kings and Boogie Nights. In 2007 he even earned an Oscar nomination for his performance in Martin Scorsese’s The Departed.
