Mark Robert Michael Wahlberg is an American actor, producer, restaurateur and former rapper.
Mark Wahlberg got his start headlining the musical group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, and later became a Hollywood A-lister through starring roles in films like ‘Boogie Nights,’ ‘The Departed’ and ‘The Fighter.’
At 14 Wahlberg dropped out of school and began making his living on the streets — hustling, stealing and selling drugs. Two years later, he hit rock bottom when he was jailed for his role in the savage beating of a Vietnamese man.
Wahlberg has an estimated net worth of $255 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
Wahlberg married model Rhea Durham in 2009. The couple had three children, daughter Ella and sons Michael and Brendan, before tying the knot. In 2010 they welcomed their fourth child together, daughter Grace Margaret.
Wahlberg established the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation in May 2001 for the purpose of raising and distributing funds to youth service and enrichment programs.
