Mark Wahlberg After his star turn as a top model, singer and a rapper known by his moniker “Marky Mark”, Mark Wahlberg conquered the world of films to great reception. Being born in June 5, he’s a true Gemini. Geminis are known to be versatile and fastidious, and from Mark’s career profile, this rings true.
Mark’s career started in the 1980s and early 1990s as Donnie Wahlberg’s younger brother in the popular boy band New Kids on the Block. Mark was actually part of the original members, which included Donnie, plus Danny Wood, Jordan Knight and Jonathan McKnight. However, Mark quit and was replaced by Joe McIntyre. Soon afterward, Mark started his own rapping career with “Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch”.
Geminis are known for being superbly artistic and excel in any field. Mark soon appeared in Calvin Klein underwear ads shot by legendary photographer Herb Ritts. Eventually, he forayed into movies, earning critical recognition in the cult classic Boogie Nights, I <3 Huckabees and The Departed, the latter of which earned him a nomination for Best Supporting Actor in the 2006 Academy Awards. Mark also flexed his producing muscles by developing hit HBO TV shows, notably Entourage which was loosely based on his life as a celebrity.
Mark is known to be vibrant and energetic in his personality, characteristic traits of most Geminis. Geminis are also known to be active and generous, proof of which is that Mark is a philanthropist who contributes to worthy causes and setting up his own Mark Wahlberg Youth Foundation in 2001.
In personal relationships, Geminis are indecisive and picky due to their dual nature. Geminis are also known to be leaning towards deep emotional commitment once they find their soul mate. However, they abhor sentimentality and ironically, mock romantic entanglements. Mark dated former child actress Soleil Moon Frye back in the early 1990s.
Since 2001, Wahlberg has been together with Rhea Durham. They got married in 2009 and have four children together, namely Ella Rae, Michael Robert, Brendan Joseph and Grace Margaret.
Despite being involved in some controversies in his early years, like a true Gemini, Mark was able to resurrect his career with great decisions and is now one of Hollywood’s elite actors.
