Mark Wahlberg on explaining the 90s to his kids

Markwahlberg As his brother enjoys a full-fledged comeback with his former band the New Kids on The Block, don’t look to Mark Wahlberg to follow it up with a Funky Bunch reunion of his own.  Mark said that while part of him "would love to run around and act like a freaking a-hole again," there are two (and soon-to-be three!) very good reasons not to — his children with fiancée Rhea Durham.  Mark, 36, revealed he is already struggling to craft an explanation for Ella Rae, 4 ½, and Michael, 2, with regard to some of the choices he’s made both as a rapper and actor.

I saw something on VH1 or something about me in the 90s and I thought, oh my God, how am I going to explain this to my kids? I have a few years to think about how to finesse it but I do think about it on a daily basis.

Nice to see that he’s like everyone else. All those silly things we did always come back to haunt you. For us normal people it’s in photo albums for him it’s on E! or VH1.

I really find Mark Wahlberg to be an amazing actor and it is wonderful to see someone turn their life around in a positive direction like he did. His children are adorable too.

I am sure he will find the right words for his past. His kids will think their dad is pretty cool.
