Mark Wahlberg Weight Loss: Actor Drops to 150 Pounds

March 6, 2014 Updated: July 18, 2015

Mark Wahlber, known for his muscled frame, is working hard at a dramatic weight loss.

He said earlier this year that he was working to drop to 150 pounds and was almost there.

“I’m trying to get as thin as I possibly can. I’m playing a literary professor who also has some serious addiction problems, trying to get ready for that,” he told Extra, referring to one of his projects.

Wahlberg said that just the smell of food was hard to take. 

“Anytime I smell food, I get crazy… my daughter was eating a blueberry scone, and I was going to jack her for it,” he said. “Literally going to rob my almost 4-year-old daughter for the blueberry muffin. It’s getting bad.”

He added that he is in fact talking to his mom, despite a rumor circulating that he’s not.
