Mark Wahlberg Has Some Regrets About His Past Behavior

Mark Wahlberg has been open about this before, and when he sat down with Men’s Health magazine, he was open again: he kinda wishes he hadn’t done everything he did when he was younger and rose to fame as “Marky Mark.”

“Believe me, if there were things I could take back I would. I can’t take any of it back and it’s moulded 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.

“When I did my first film I really felt like I had found my niche. It was difficult because I wanted to do anything in my power to make people forget about my past. I wanted to be credible, respected and taken seriously.

“Well family is the most important thing to me. So when I’m back home I’m in the gym at 4:30am, when it’s still dark out and the kids haven’t woken up yet. Then I get the kids up, get them off to school and get my day started.

“Family, faith and being a good 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.”

I love seeing how much Mark has matured! He’s got his priorities straight, doesn’t he?

    There’s nothing quite like a man who loves/adores his kids like that, I instantly melt… :)

    I thought he was going to say he has lot of regrets about his criminal past like gouging out that vietnamese man’s eye. I don’t think he’s ever made a public comment about that.

      Yes he actually has – on two of the nighttime shows I’ve seen when they interviewed him.

    Men, especially celebrities, will say whatever they think you want to hear, especially when they are promoting themselves. You never know how they REALLY are, though, unless you are the one by their side day after day. Most men actually tend to think they are doing better than they really are. Not that I don’t think he adores his kids, I just don’t think them tooting their own horn tells us much.

    Religion and family are most important to him? Last time I checked, Catholics were not supposed to have sex before marriage. And how many kids did he have before he married his now wife? Two? Three? One standard for him, another one for everyone else…
