To Top

Mark Wahlberg has spoken out about his Catholic faith in regards to the film roles that he has taken on throughout his career. He joked to a newspaper that he hopes God will forgive him.


“I just always hope that God is a movie fan and also forgiving, because I’ve made some poor choices in my past. Boogie Nights is up there at the top of the list.”

He went on to discuss his past and how important he feels that it is to give back to people who could use some guidance.

“I’ve never been shy about sharing my past and the bad decisions I’ve made and being affiliated with gangs, being incarcerated, so absolutely I think they can identify with me on a personal level, and that’s why I’ve continued to try to do as much as I can to help young people.

“It’s one thing to give money, or to start programs, but to be there and be able to talk to them, and tell them there is someone who has been through the same things they are going through and was able to turn their life around, and turn it into a big positive. That’s always important.”
