Mark Wahlberg is one very hot daddy.
The 44-year-old actor shows off his impressive bod and strength in Daddy's Home.
In the film he plays a bad boy dad competing with his kids' straight-laced stepdad (Will Ferrell) for their affections. At one point, a shirtless Wahlberg does multiple one-arm pull-ups. "I did probably about 700 that day," Wahlberg tells me. "We did many takes from many angles."
He explained there was a "gentleman underneath" him to help him out. "They didn't want me to sound like I was giving an effort whatsoever so I'm talking very calmly during the push-ups and the pull-ups," Wahlberg said.
In a nod to his Dirk Diggler character in 1997's Boogie Nights, Daddy's Home also implies Wahlberg's character is very endowed.
He cracked, "I'm sick of being followed to the bathroom."
Daddy's Home is in theaters on Dec. 25. The cast also includes Linda Cardellini, Hannibal Buress, Thomas Haden Church and Bobby Cannavale.
