Mark Wahlberg has discussed his future plans in Hollywood and revealed his hopes to slow down his acting career.

Although the ongoing strikes have currently brought Hollywood to a standstill, Wahlberg still has an array of projects in the pipeline. One of his upcoming movies includes The Six Billion Dollar Man, which is currently in pre-production and is a sci-fi based on the television series from the 1970s titled The Six Million Dollar Man.

However, Wahlberg, who often also works on his projects as a producer, doesn’t foresee himself to continue starring in movies at such a fast pace in the future. “Well, I’m certainly working harder now than ever,” he admitted in a new interview.

“Certain businesses, you kind of build them, pass them on or you exit. Hopefully my kids, we’ll see what their interests are, but I don’t think that I’ll be acting that much longer at the pace I am now,” he added to Cigar Aficionado.

Wahlberg, who has four children with his wife Rhea Dunham, then addressed the difficulties of balancing work and family. He added: “That’s for sure. Because that’s the most difficult thing.””

In the same interview, Wahlberg also revealed he only became a producer “out of necessity”. The Ted star explained: “I started becoming a producer out of necessity. I didn’t want to sit around waiting for Brad Pitt or Tom Cruise or whoever was already established before me and were the guys at the time, and Leo [DiCaprio] to go and pass on a movie until I could get my hands on it.”

He continued: “I was always proactive in trying to find material and things that I could produce, that I knew was right for me, create my own destiny.”

Meanwhile, Jack White recently criticised Wahlberg along with Joe Rogan for speaking with Donald Trump at a UFC event. The former White Stripes singer said: “Anybody who ‘normalizes’ or treats this disgusting fascist, racist, con man, disgusting piece of shit Trump with any level of respect is ALSO disgusting in my book.”
