Mark Wahlberg pushes his retirement date back by five years
Mark Wahlberg has revealed he’s reconsidering his previous plans to retire at 40.
The 37 year old’s film career as gone from strength to strength over the last decade, with his 2006 performance in The Departed receiving an Oscar nomination and his latest film Max Payne topped the US box office charts last weekend.
He explained recently that his ongoing success is going to make it hard to say goodbye to Hollywood - but it’ll be worth it when he does: “Maybe I’ll retire at 45 now. We’ll see.
“[But] I can’t be working at the pace that I am for much longer.
“I want to be able to take my kids to school and drag them to the golf course with me.”
Mark and partner Rhea Durham have three children together - five year old daughter Ella, two year old son Michael and four week old Brendan - and plan to marry next year.
