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.”
