Mark Wahlberg has traded the Golden State for the Silver State.
In a recent interview on “The Talk,” Wahlberg opened up about moving his family to Nevada to give his kids “a better life.”
“I want to be able to work from home. I moved to California many years ago to pursue acting and I’ve only made a couple of movies in the entire time that I was there,” he said. “So, to be able to give my kids a better life and follow and pursue their dreams, whether it be my daughter as an equestrian, my son as a basketball player, my younger son as a golfer, this made a lot more sense for us.”
Wahlberg is married to model Rhea Durham and the couple has four children.
Last spring, the Wahlbergs put their 12-bedroom and 20-bath Beverly Park estate on the market for $87.5 million dollars.
The Boston native said he’s excited to give his kids a fresh start and says there is “lots of opportunity” in Nevada.
