Mark Wahlberg Wouldn't Give Advice to His Younger Self for This Reason

Mark Wahlberg Wouldn't Give Advice to His Younger Self for This Reason

Mark Wahlberg shows off his sculpted body for Men’s Health magazine’s September 2016 issue.

Here’s what the 45-year-old actor had to share.

On advice he would give his younger self: “People always ask, ‘What would you say to the 15- or 16-year-old Mark Wahlberg? I say, ‘Why would I bother? He wouldn’t lis­ten. He thought he knew it all.’”

On learning new businesses: “I’m not afraid to ask questions. I don’t pretend to know what I’m talking about. If there’s something I don’t understand, I’m the first one to say, ‘Explain that to me until I do understand it.’ Like learning the beverage business, learning the restaurant business.”

On his physical transformation for his movies: “It gets harder the older you get. That’s why staying in shape and maintaining it is always easier than going from one extreme to the other, heavy to getting in shape to stop­ping training and getting heavy again.”

    That would be great advice but he still probably wouldn’t listen.
    Dennis Lehane books, especially A Drink Before The War, provides a good idea of the tension in the Boston area for those unfamiliar.
