Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg said once he “started putting” his “faith and focus on God, good things” happened to him.
In a recent interview with Fox News, the 51-year-old actor said the most important thing to him besides his family is his faith, and how without it, he wouldn’t have been able to handle the hard times.
“I attribute everything good and everything positive in life to my faith,” Wahlberg said. “As soon as I started putting my faith and focus on God, good things started happening for me.”

“And even when they didn’t, it gives you the coping skills to deal with things that are inevitable, like loss and failure and those things,” he added. “But, you know, again, my faith and my family, those are the most important aspects of my life.”
The “Uncharted” star also talked about how his family is doing after they relocated from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.
“My kids are doing fantastic,” Wahlberg said. “I wish I would’ve made the move sooner. … I spent lots of time in LA pursuing my own professional aspirations.”
“And, so, to be able to now put them in a position to where they can pursue theirs, their interests, it’s definitely the right thing to do, and it’s long overdue,” he added.
In 2022, Wahlberg appeared in “Father Stu,” a movie based on the true story of a boxer who became a Catholic priest. The actor, who is a devout Catholic, previously discussed the film and said it was “his calling” and “mission” to get this movie made.
