Mark Wahlberg's weight loss


Mark Wahlberg was spotted in Los Angeles February 3 on the set for his new film The Gambler not looking like his normal Calvin Klein self. The former underwear model is working diligently on his weight loss in preparation for his role as someone with a "serious" drug addiction.

"I'm trying to get as thin as I possibly can. I'm playing a literary professor who also has some serious addiction problems, trying to get ready for that," The rapper turned actor revealed in an interview with Extra in January.

The 42 year old also playfully joked about his temptations with food in the interview: “Anytime I smell food, I get crazy… my daughter was eating a blueberry scone, and I was going to jack her for it… literally going to rob my almost 4-year-old daughter for the blueberry muffin. It’s getting bad.”

Marky Mark clearly has not had any slip ups with the fatty foods since he revealed he is trying to weight about 150 pounds, but I think women across the world would prefer the muscles!
