Mark Wahlberg has taken to Instagram sharing before and after photos of his transformation for his role in the film, Father Stu.
The actor picked up 9kgs in 3 weeks, he says, thanks in part to his chef, Lawrence Duran. He needs to gain a total of 14kgs for the role, however, he previously shared.
Father Stu, written and directed by Rosalind Ross, is a faith-based movie, reports Deadline. Speaking to Jimmy Kimmel in April, the Ted actor shared that the movie, also starring Jacki Weaver, will see him play a fighter.
"I'm playing a guy who was a fighter—he was many things," he said. "He was a fighter, he moved to LA to become an actor, he fell in love with a girl, he had an accident, he had an outer-body spiritual experience, he decided to become a priest. He died of a rare disease, IBM, but he had a big impact on a lot of people in a very short amount of time."
