MARK Wahlberg keeps a fake penis in his safe.
The Other Guys actor kept the 13in latex appendage he used when he played porn star Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights and has only just decided to store it away after previously keeping it to hand to play pranks on his pals.
“I used to keep it in my desk drawer,” he said. “And I’d take it out and slap my friends in the face with it. I don’t keep many things from my movies, but that just seemed to have personal significance.”
Despite his love of jokes, the 39-year-old star — who has four children, Ella, seven, Michael, four, Brendan, two, and nine-month-old Grace, with wife Rhea Durham – insists he has matured and is a much more sensible person nowadays.
“I’m only interested in being responsible, being on the level and not doing any dumb s**t,” he said.
Mark — who is now a devout Catholic — had a turbulent youth, getting into trouble for a string of petty crimes and drug abuse, but he tries not to regret the past.
“All those things are the make-up of who I am. There are, of course, certain things I’d like to take away, or that I wouldn’t want to have to explain to my kids. But it’s all part of me,” he said.
“I’ve certainly asked forgiveness many times and we have a wonderful forgiving and compassionate God. But I can’t hold on to all the stuff I’ve done in the past. I’ve got to look to the future.”
