Mark Wahlberg’s Wife Unhappy With Art Collection

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies,

Mark Wahlberg and Rhea DurhamMark Wahlberg's wife wants him to stop collecting art. The star has an impressive collection but admitted he may have to cut back after his spouse Rhea - with whom he has four children Ella, eight, Michael, five, Brendan, three, and two-year-old Grace - put her foot down.

"I gotta stop collecting art. I bought a piece by Marc Chagall [the Russian-French artist] recently and my wife wanted to kill me. She said it looked like my daughter had painted it."

Rhea has also put a stop to Mark's long preparation time for movies. In the past he liked to shut himself away to get into character but his 33-year-old spouse has insisted he spend less time away from his family from now on: "I love preparation. I do whatever the director wants me to do, but I no longer have the luxury to go some place three weeks early and rent a place and go to places I think my character might go to. My wife would be like, 'Are you out of your mind?' But I certainly do what I have to do to prepare, whether it be physically or mentally."
