New article about Mark in People Magazine has a new article about Mark and what his son Brendan thinks about his muscles.

Mark Wahlberg: My Son Doesn’t Want Me to Lose My Muscles

It’s no secret that Mark Wahlberg is famous for his fantastic physique, and he’s launched a line of supplements with GNC to further his connection to the fitness world. Still, even he has critics when it comes to his looks, the actor tells PEOPLE.

While working out to lose weight for his role in 2 Guns, Wahlberg’s 3½-year-old son Brendan asked, “Daddy, are you losing weight?” he recalls. “I said, ‘Yes, buddy.’ He said, ‘Don’t lose weight, don’t lose your muscles!’”

Wahlberg, 41, thinks his little boy may be hoping for his own set of biceps.

“His mother [Rhea Durham] and he had a picture of his face super-imposed on a body-builder’s body from some fitness magazine,” he says. “He’s obsessed with me carrying it in my briefcase. Whenever I open my briefcase to read my scripts, the first thing I see is that picture.”

Fitness has always been a big part of Wahlberg’s life, and he says he tries to teach his kids — Ella, 8½, Michael, 6½, Brendan and Grace, 2½ — about health whenever he can.

“My sons are always down in the gym with me, and they notice that daddy doesn’t like to eat a lot of sweets.” When he brought them donuts as a treat before he went off to a shoot, “they were like, ‘Daddy, where’s your donut?’” he recalls. “I said, ‘Nope, Daddy’s ok, I don’t want a donut today.’”

Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber movie

Yahoo has also posted a new article about the possible Mark Wahlberg/Justin Bieber movie:

Justin Bieber wants to follow 'Marky Mark' Wahlberg into acting

In a new interview with E!, Bieber reveals that he "hopes to do some more acting." The pop star also confirms that he and Wahlberg, 41, are joining forces on a film project that's been buzzed about for a while: a basketball drama. "We've been working on this script for a long time now," Bieber reveals.

Wahlberg has also discussed teaming up with the teen in the movie he reportedly hopes to begin filming in the spring. "Think of [it as] like, 'The Color of Money,'" Wahlberg told MTV, referring to the 1986 movie about pool hustlers that starred Paul Newman and Tom Cruise. Wahlberg also joked that he was surprised to learn he'd be playing the older character in the film. "So I get this call from Paramount [with a story about] an old guy and a young guy. I'm like, 'Cool, let's get Jack [Nicholson]. Let's get Robert De Niro. Let's get Robert Duvall.' And they go, 'What about Garrett Hedlund?' I'm like, 'For what?' They're like, 'For the young guy.'"

Wahlberg, who's now a father of four, first experienced Bieber Fever thanks to his children. In fact, he even told Time magazine in 2010, that Bieber is the only person who could make him rap again! "If Justin Bieber asked me, I'd do that for my daughter," Wahlberg said. "She loves me to death, but she doesn't think I'm very cool, so that might turn it around." Then, he raved about Bieber in June. "Obviously, [Bieber] is a very good athlete," Wahlberg told MTV, referring to an episode of "The Diary of Justin Bieber" in which the teen showed off his skills on the court. "People have seen him on MTV; he can play. But I also really think he can act … There's not going to be any shortage of pushing him in getting that kind of strong performance out of him, if we get to make the movie. We're just going to have to make him realize that he's playing a character so he can't have the same hairdo."
