Hollywood tough guy begins intense daily routine with prayer

Hollywood tough guy Mark Wahlberg has revealed his intense daily routine begins with 30 minutes of prayers.

The 47-year-old devout Catholic recently revealed his workout routine after a fan quizzed him on social media.

In response, the Transformers star not only provided details of his workout but posted a detailed schedule on Instagram, revealing his snacking times, the moments he spends with family and his bedtime, at 7.30pm!

However, 7.30pm doesn’t seem such an early bedtime when, like Wahlberg, you wake up at 2.30am. And, after around 15 minutes of waking up, the actor’s first act is to begin the day with half an hour of prayer time between 2.45am and 3.15am, when he eats breakfast.

As previously reported in The Catholic Universe, Wahlberg’s faith is of great importance to him.

Speaking to a vocations convention in 2016, Wahlberg, who first found fame as rap artist Marky Mark, the frontman of a hip-hop band called Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, said: “My Catholic faith is the anchor that supports everything I do in life.”
