Mark Wahlberg is on the cover of the Men’s Health January/February 2012 issue, and in the accompanying interview, the “Fighter” actor discussed his priorities as a parent and those unfortunate outfits he wore as the frontman of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.
Of parenting, he said, “Family, faith and being a food person are the be-all and end-all. If I succeed at business and I fail at being a good father, then it was all for nothing.” Wahlberg says that while he’s at home, he does his workouts at 4:30 a.m. so that he can be home in time to get his kids up and off to school on time.
On his time with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, he said, “Believe me, if there were things I could take back, I would. I can’t take any of it back and it’s molded who I am today, but I would certainly like to erase some of those things. I should have kept my shirt on a lot more. And not pulled my pants down so much.”
