Fear’s Mark Wahlberg Talks SEX SYMBOL Status and Calls Himself a ‘Born Liar’

‘Fear’ turns 25! Mark Wahlberg chatted with ET about playing a villain in ‘Fear,’ and reacted to his status as a sex symbol in this 1996 interview. The rapper turned underwear model turned actor took audiences on a roller coaster of mayhem, and Wahlberg described his character as a ‘grown-up Chucky.’ He joked that his natural talent for acting comes from being ‘a born liar,’ but admitted the role was a challenge because he enjoyed working with his co-stars, which included Reese Witherspoon and ‘CSI’s William Peterson. While he was most well-known for his Calvin Klein commercials, and being the titular frontman of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch, Wahlberg said he wasn’t concerned that his image might hold him back in Hollywood. In a reference to the movie’s ending, Wahlberg joked that ‘If you like me, you’ll like the movie. If you don’t like me, you’ll like the movie.’
