I attribute all of my success to my faith: Mark Wahlberg

The actor discusses “Hallow” and how faith has driven his life on “The Ingraham Angle.”

xWhile Mark Wahlberg is a bona fide movie star these days, it wasn’t always that way.

Donnie Wahlberg, 54, said this week that he invested around $500,000 in his younger brother, 52, in the early 1990s in an effort to help launch his music career and keep him “out of the streets.”

The New Kids on the Block alum told SiriusXM’s “Andy Cohen Live” in an interview with the band that he was determined to “help my brother, you know, stay out of the streets because his life was going nowhere fast, and he was in good shape and, you know, he’d come out to shows and fans would be like, ‘Oh my god, he’s cute,’ and I’d be like, ‘He is cute. Make this kid famous.’”
