Mark Wahlberg knows he's in good shape.
In fact, he knows this so hard that he's decided to get into the nutrition business!
So he's joined up with GNC to launch MARKED, a new line of performance nutrition products — in addition to his whey!
Sounds about right to us!
Here's what he said:
"I've wanted to be in the health and wellness business for a long time. Obviously, fitness has been a big part of my life since I was very young and I just wanted to do it in a way that I could have the most control."
Apparently he even tested out the products himself when preparing for movie roles that required major physical transformations!
"In my projects I look to try and find things where I can change physically. For 'Broken City' the director wanted me to be as thin as possible. So I changed my exercise and my diet. Then, right after that I was on to do a movie where I had to put on 40 pounds of muscle and play a bodybuilder."
He isn't joking either — even his son is noticing that he has to change for work:
"My 3-year-old son noticed that I'm losing weight and he was like, 'Daddy, why are you losing weight? Are you losing weight?' He asked me four times when he was in New Orleans last week visiting me. I said, 'Yeah, buddy, but I have to for work.' He said, 'No, don't lose weight, Daddy.'"
Oh, and did we mention that portion of the profits from his line will benefit the Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation, whose mission is to improve the quality of life for inner city youth?
Because that's fo'real!
Congrats, Mark! We hope it does well!
