Mark Wahlberg packs on the pounds for new film

A-lister ‘tough guy’ Mark Wahlberg’s abs have departed, with the 49-year-old reportedly packing on 20 pounds (9kg) of flab in three weeks in preparation for a new role.

The Oscar-nominated actor playfully showed off his body transformation to his 16.3 million Instagram followers, and received a swarm of support.

The deliberate weight gain is for Wahlberg’s new movie ‘Father Stu’, a drama about a former fighter-turned-priest, to be directed by Rosalind Ross and also starring Mel Gibson.
