By now I’m sure we’ve all seen those pretty awesome pics of Mark Wahlberg showing off his gigantic guns on the set of his new film, “Pain and Gain” in Miami last month. They were pretty impressive, right? Well, it looks like we’re not the only ones who are impressed with them as Mark reveals that his kids don’t want him to lose his muscles, either.
While working out to lose weight for his role in 2 Guns, Mark’s 3½-year-old son Brendan asked, “Daddy, are you losing weight?” he recalls. “I said, ‘Yes, buddy.’ He said, ‘Don’t lose weight, don’t lose your muscles!’”
“His mother [Rhea Durham] and he had a picture of his face super-imposed on a body-builder’s body from some fitness magazine,” he says. “He’s obsessed with me carrying it in my briefcase. Whenever I open my briefcase to read my scripts, the first thing I see is that picture.”
Too cute, right?
