Mark Wahlberg embarrassed by underwear modelling


Mark Wahlberg isn't looking forward to his children discovering his "underwear modelling" career.

The 42-year-old star ? who has children Ella (9), Michael (7), Brendan (4) and three-year-old Grace with wife Rhea Durham ? admitted it will be "embarrassing" once his offspring start to ask questions about his brief time as a model.

He told the Mail on Sunday newspaper's Event magazine, "The underwear modelling I did for Calvin Klein with Kate Moss was not good in retrospect, but at the time it got me a lot of attention from the ladies!

"Explaining that ? along with the rap career ? to my kids is going to be embarrassing when they are old enough to ask."

The 2Guns actor isn't just regretful about his extracurricular activities though ? he’s also disappointed with movies which fell short of his own expectations.

He added, "[My biggest disappointment] would be movies that for whatever reason didn't work. The Truth about Charlie didn't turn out great. But it meant I got to work with [director] Jonathan Demme.

"It was the same with [director] Tim Burton and Planet of the Apes ? though after those two films I made a decision to take roles I believed in rather than because there was someone I wanted to work with."
