Who is Mark Wahlberg?
Mark Wahlberg is an industry unicorn. He's one of the rare stars that successfully transitioned from teen idol to respected actor.
Restaurateur, fashion designer, rapper, underwear model, producer, investor, avid golfer, father, husband, and Oscar-nominated actor, Mark Wahlberg has done it all.
Yet, growing up, life wasn't perfect. Born in Boston, Wahlberg was the youngest of nine children in a middle class Irish family. He was constantly getting in trouble. In his youth, he spent time in jail following an arrest for assault. Though he ultimately only served 45 days of his two-year sentence, jail time turned out to be the wake up call he needed.
After his incarceration, Mark Wahlberg turned his life around. He started rapping and began his career in entertainment. He had an industry connection too. His older brother, Donnie, was a member of New Kids on The Block. Eventually, Wahlberg left the pop group to pursue a solo career as a hip hop artist.
His rap group, Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch, had success with their #1 single, “Good Vibrations” (1991). In that single he rhymes “my body is healthy”. In addition to his music career, Mark Wahlberg turned to fitness to get his life on the right track.
Though his rap career has been over for a long time, he's continued to focus on health and fitness. Mark Wahlberg made headlines in 2018 when he posted his schedule for a “typical day” on Instagram stories. The calendar included a 3am workout, Cryo recovery, golf, another workout at 4pm, and six meals.
Aside from his insane schedule, Wahlberg is known for his roles in critically acclaimed films like Three Kings (1999), The Departed (2006) and Instant Family (2018). He's also a producer. His most famous productions include the HBO series Entourage (2015) and Ballers (2015-2018).
Outside of Hollywood, he owns a casual dining chain called Wahlburgers. His brothers, Donnie and Paul Wahlberg are partners. To date, there are 26 Wahlburgers locations throughout the United States, Canada, and the UK.
At the moment, Mark Wahlberg is filming the drama Good Joe Bell. It's scheduled for a 2020 release. His other film, Wonderland, is in post-production. It's likely to be released later this year.
Who is Mark Wahlberg's wife?
Mark Wahlberg is married to American model Rhea Durham. Together, they have four children. The couple began dating in 2001. Durham and Wahlberg married in a private Catholic ceremony on August 1, 2009.
The former Victoria's Secret Angel is taller than her husband. Rhea Durham is 5′ 9″. Their height difference is most obvious on the red carpet, since she's usually wearing high heels.
How tall is Mark Wahlberg?
We know he's rich. We know he's of the fittest men on the planet. We know he has a gorgeous wife and cute kids. Did you know he's also short?
That's right. Mark Wahlberg is 5′ 7″. At five-foot seven inches tall, his height hasn't stopped him from achieving success in any arena.
What is Mark Wahlberg's net worth?
These days, it's not the rhymes that keep him wealthy. He's amassed his fortune with plenty of projects.
Between his acting roles, producer credits, restaurants, his Barbados-based cricket team, his shares of F45 Fitness franchise, StockX sneaker resale marketplace, Aquahydrate, and probably a dozen other deals in the works, Wahlberg's investments have paid off.
As of 2019, Mark Wahlberg's estimated net worth stands at $255 Million.
His Casual Style
For Mark Wahlberg, shirts tend to be very fitted. Some are extremely tight–all the better to show off his hard work.
Mark Wahlberg's casual street style consists of:
- Graphic t-shirts
- Baseball caps
- A single chain (usually a cross)
- Loose fit jeans
- Large watches
- Cargo shorts
Although he goes for a casual look, the jeans and jewelry he sports are in line with his east coast roots. Those items would be swapped for flip flops and joggers if he were a native Angeleno.
Overall, his look is very simple, with a playful nod to his hip hop past. Mark Wahlberg is really just a jeans and t-shirt guy. It's no wonder his foray into fashion design was a t-shirt collection with Indian Motorcycle.
Of course, he also goes shirtless whenever possible.
His Red Carpet Style
In the past, Mark Wahlberg said he'll only put on a suit “if he has to.” Maybe his discomfort with formal wear explains his tendency to make an Armani suit look like a JC Penney clearance find.
Fortunately, Wahlberg's non-suited professional outfits are much better. He has a go-to uniform of sweaters and black pants for television appearances and photo calls.
Generally, he sticks to the same basic silhouette of his casual looks–tight on top, with a looser fit on the bottom. His outfits may have one or more of these features:
- Solid crew neck sweaters
- Black pants
- Black jeans
- Suede boots
- Large watches
Overall, Wahlberg's style is fine, not great, but acceptable. Better tailoring, an upgraded shoe collection, and the addition of straight leg pants would go a long way to improve his look.
