“If it has anything to do with me kissing somebody, my wife’s not gonna like it, so I’ll fight to get it cut out,” he explained to WENN. “Those are the more important issues. I usually try to choose my battles wisely.”
In the case of “Broken City,” Wahlberg said that getting director Allen Hughes to cut out the love scene meant that a nude scene was added in, so he isn’t entirely out of the water. “I still had to be butt naked for six hours, but it wasn’t with somebody else!” he explained.
Wahlberg seems to have found a great way to balance his work and marriage. Do you think other actors use the same tactic with directors?
