Mark Wahlberg Birthday: Marky Mark's Best Shirtless Photos


Mark Wahlberg probably won't be celebrating his birthday drinking beers and chowing down on extra spicy wings.

Nope, the "Boogie Nights" hottie, who turns 41 on June 5, will probably be pumping iron at the gym, making sure his rock hard abs and tight glutes are in tip-top shape. (Hey, we aren't complaining!)

We've been a fan of Wahlberg since he was known as Marky Mark, an essential member of the '90s hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funk Bunch. Admit it, you still rock out to "Good Vibrations" alone in your home.

But our favourite Boston native has come a long way from pop stardom.

After making his movie debut in the 1994 film "Renaissance Man," the bedroom eyed hunk powered his way through a slew of films, finally hitting it big playing porn star Dirk Diggler in the 1997 movie "Boogie Nights."

But his infamous Calvin Klein underwear ads really got our attention. (Oddly enough, Mark's Calvin Klein co-star Kate Moss recently revealed that she had a nervous breakdown over straddling the chestalicious hottie.)

Thankfully, Calvin Klein wasn't the only place where Mark was able to let his true talents shine through. The hot dad, who's been married to model Rhea Durham since 2001, showed off his abs in "The Fighter," "Boogie Nights," "Date Night" and "Rock Star" to name a few.

So, to celebrate "Pain & Gain" star's 41st, we're going to give you, HuffPost Canada Style readers, a little treat: The best shirtless pics of Mark Wahlberg. You're welcome.
