WATCH: Mark Wahlberg shares how his faith is “the most important” thing in his life

Aleteia - published on 11/28/16

In this exclusive Aleteia interview the actor reveals a side of him you might not expect

What’s hidden behind one of the most popular celebrities in Hollywood? Something you might not expect: a steadfast faith and an incredible respect for life.

We met up with Mark Wahlberg, one of Hollywood’s most popular actors, producers and directors, in Rome, at the presentation of his latest film, Deepwater Horizon. The film is based on the true story of the human and ecological catastrophe experienced by 126 workers April 20, 2010 in the Gulf of Mexico.

In this interview, Wahlberg reveals how faith is the driving force in his life, and how the choice of characters in stories can transmit great values.
