Mark Wahlberg really loves being a dad

Mark Wahlberg is covering Esquire‘s new “Fatherhood Issue”, which is actually kinda refreshing to see since usually parenting guides/discussions are geared towards the ladies. Mark has four kids of his own with wife Rhea Durham – 10-year-old Ella, 8-year-old Michael, 5-year-old Brendan and 4-year-old Grace – and he finds it to be a pretty rewarding experience.

“I think the most important thing is to always be involved in every aspect of their life. To give them enough trust that they can share things with you. I don’t want them to be terrified of me, you know? But I don’t want them to think they can do whatever they want and get away with it, either, because they can’t.”

“The biggest thing for me is, you know, as quickly as I was able to turn it around, to get from there to here, from me having nothing as a kid to me here now, providing everything for my kids, it’s like, I worry that maybe they won’t appreciate things. I worry that maybe they’ll have a sense of entitlement. You don’t wanna give your kids everything without giving them the tools to be great people.”

Mark is a bit of a weirdo from time to time, but that seems like a pretty solid approach to kids (coming from someone who doesn’t have or want any).

Watch: The ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ trailer is here!

If you’re a fan of the Transformers franchise, then you’re going to love the newest movie, Transformers: Age of Extinction. It’s full of all the good summery blockbuster stuff: explosions, running, loud music, the usual. Plus, Mark Wahlberg‘s in it and Shia LaBeouf – thank God – isn’t. What’s not to like?

I don’t really “get” Transformers. Like, how do they exist within their storyline? I’m still into it, and I actually would go and see this just for the… bigness of it all.

What do you think – will you go see Transformers: Age of Extinction?

Mark Wahlberg on Harry Styles: ‘I want to punch that little prick’

mark wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg is your standard, run-of-the-mill tough guy (or so he thinks), so he often says shit that he probably thinks sounds really impressive but actually just makes him look sorta corny and like a bit of an asshole. Latest case in point: during an interview on Conan this week, Mark revealed that his daughter is a big fan of One Direction – and band member Harry Styles, in particular.

Well, Mark doesn’t like that his daughters – one of which who is only 4 years old, keep in mind – likes anyone other than her own father, so he wants to beat the shit out of Harry Styles, who is a “prick” by virtue of his daughter being a fan. I know he wasn’t being serious (one would assume) and that he probably thought he was being “funny” and making a “joke”, but eh… no thanks, bro.

“Now the girls have turned to One Direction, they don’t care about Dad anymore. My 4-year-old’s going, ‘Daddy, I like Harry.’ And I’m like, ‘Well, I’m gonna punch Harry in the nose when I see him.’ I get jealous. If I see that little prick he’s gonna get it.”

Mmkay.
