Mark Wahlberg suits up while out and about on Friday (December 12) in New York City.
The 43-year-old The Gambler actor made an appearance on Late Night with Seth Meyers the night before and discussed what it was like wearing a prosthetic penis in his breakout movie, Boogie Nights.
“You have this weird guy putting it on you. You have to wear it all day. There’s not a way to go to the bathroom or anything like that. It was pretty weird,” Mark said. “But it’s actually the only prop I’ve ever kept from a movie. I didn’t think there would be that much interest in it but maybe I can at some point sell it at auction for charity.”
Mark also talked about the process of how they made the prosthetic.
“I have to stand there and take off my clothes and the start sculpting this thing around you. It’s very uncomfortable and very awkward. And the first time they did it they did the exact same specs, measurements, to what they thought John Holmes was like – for anybody who doesn’t know who John Holmes is, he’s a very famous porn star in the 70s – so this thing was like down past my knee. You’d sit down and the thing would bounce up. So the first one did not work, everybody thought it was ridiculous,” Mark said. “I had to come out to set and show everybody, and I’m like, ‘Oh my God.’ Everybody’s, ‘Hey! Look at this thing! Come check this out, what do you think?’ Then they had to modify it a little bit, it was pretty embarrassing.”
FYI: Mark is wearing 7 For All Mankind jeans on Late Night with Seth Meyers.
