Mark Wahlberg gained almost 10 kg in three weeks while transforming his body into a role in the next film. Check out the photos.
Mark Wahlberg packed 9kg in just three weeks for a role in the film.
The actor shared photos side by side on social media, showing his remarkable body change for the film, Stu.
“From this three weeks ago, to this one, now. Thanks to @chef_lawrence_d cuisine ”, Wahlberg added captions to the photos.
His wife Rhea showed her support, commenting, “And it looks so hot in person, baby.”
Over the weekend, Wahlberg also shared a video from the academy with the caption: “Kenny is under 50 (22 kg) and I went up about 20 (9 kg). Inspired to be better! I’m going up 20 more (9kg). Yes, it is for a role. “
Last month, Wahlberg told Jimmy Kimmel Live about his new role: “I’m playing a guy who was a fighter – he was a lot. He was a fighter, moved to Los Angeles to become an actor, fell in love with a girl, had an accident, had an outside spiritual experience, decided to become a priest. He died of a rare disease, IBM, but it has had a major impact on many people in a very short period of time. “
Speaking about the weight gain process for the film, Wahlberg said: “After doing the boxing scenes, I manage to put on as much weight as possible throughout the film, so I’m challenging myself to put on 13 pounds in the next six weeks. .
“They want me to make it as healthy as possible. I’m like, ‘Dude, I’ve been on this regime for so long, I just want to eat everything in sight’. I want to go to bakeries, I want to go to Denny’s, I want to eat pancakes. I want to get everything I can get my hands on. “
The star said his binge meal would be “maybe 20 pieces of chicken nuggets, hot Kentucky Fried Chicken wings with six packs of beer. Let’s start with a bang. “
Wahlberg last played a boxer in the 2010 Oscar-winning film, The Fighter.
