Mark Wahlberg Paid More For Trainers Than He Made For The Fighter

We sort of love Mark Wahlberg for playing this role — not only because it forced him to be shirtless, but because he was EXTREMELY committed to it.

In fact, he was so committed that he paid more money for personal trainers than he was paid for the role!

Said Wahlberg:

“There are many, many boxing movies, and I love most of them. But I knew that the thing that would set us apart was if the fights looked more real, and I looked more like a boxer than anyone else who’s done it in the past.”

He continued:

“I spent more money paying my trainers and having them travel with me than I got paid, by a good half a million dollars.”

OMG that’s so crazy! We love it!!
