From the Golden State to the Silver State. Mark Wahlberg recently revealed that he and his family no longer call Hollywood their home and have settled for “a better life” in Nevada.
During the Tuesday 11 October episode of The conversationthe left star, 51, discussed the challenges he faced in balancing his acting career, business ventures and fatherhood and revealed why he and his family finally decided to move.
“I want to be able to work from home. I moved to California many years ago to take up acting and I only made a few movies in the entire time I was there,” said the Uncharted star — who shares children Ella Rae, 19, Michael, 16, Brendan, 14, and Grace, 12, with wife Rhea Wahlberg – explained on the talk show “So to be able to give my kids a better life and to follow and chase their dreams, be it my daughter as a rider, my son as a basketball player, my youngest son as a golfer, this made much more sense for us.”
The Massachusetts native, who put their Los Angeles home on the market in April, said he and his family moved to Nevada after the gubernatorial election in hopes that legislation would be passed so the family could earn a state tax credit. .
“So we came here to give ourselves a little bit of a new look, a fresh start for the kids and there are a lot of opportunities here,” Ted star added. “I’m really looking forward to the future.”
Mark also revealed how he plans to build a “state-of-the-art studio” in Nevada and make it “Hollywood 2.0”. He also shared his hopes to build a shoe factory and a factory for Municipal, his clothing line.
While the Wahlbergs have always made their children their top priority, they bonded even more closely while quarantined as a family, shooting TikTok videos during the 2020 coronavirus pandemic.
“I owe a lot to my wife,” the Massachusetts resident told Britain’s… The sun in 2008. “She has helped me become the man I am and has created a beautiful life for me and our children. … You need the right woman in your life and that feeling that you will be together for a long time to come. That is especially important if you are going to have children.”
