When he’s not pulling off two-a-day workouts for an upcoming movie, Mark Wahlberg is busy making a whole lot of money.
The Boston-born actor has been in the entertainment industry for decades – and as you’re probably aware, he isn’t just famous for his acting (or his rock-hard upper body, for that matter).
Who could forget his days as Marky Mark? Or as a Calvin Klein underwear model? Mark Wahlberg has done it all – including starting a lucrative restaurant chain with his brothers.
Here’s what we know about Wahlberg’s net worth.
Mark Wahlberg earned $ 68 million between June 2016 and June 2017.
In 2017, Forbes named Wahlberg the 20th highest paid actor in the world, thanks to movies like Patriots Day, Daddy’s Home 2, and Transformers: The Last Knight.
But Wahlberg’s big paychecks don’t exactly mirror his movies’ performance at the box office. In 2017, Forbes also named him the most overpaid actor of the year: "His three wide releases prior to June 1, 2017, returned just $ 4.40 at the box office for every $ 1 he was paid on them," the outlet reported. "With disappointments including 2016’s oil spill drama Deepwater Horizon, which barely out-earned its estimated $ 110 million budget, Wahlberg’s multi-million dollar paydays look mighty expensive."
Mark Wahlberg has diversified his income stream
Wahlberg has a lot going on besides acting. As Town&Country explained, Walhberg makes a decent living through his sports nutrition line and the burger restaurant chain he owns with his brothers, called Wahlburgers – which also has its own A&E reality show.
We aren’t done yet. In 2013, Wahlberg bought partial ownership in a cricket team in Barbados. "I’m excited to be a part of the Limacol Caribbean Premier League because I know cricket is huge in the Caribbean and a rich part of the region’s heritage," Wahlberg said in a statement in 2013. “Thanks to my dear friend Ajmal Khan who introduced me to Barbados and the LCPL, I am a huge cricket fan now."
Talk about having a side hustle.
Wahlberg’s total net worth is an estimated $ 225 million, according to Bankrate.
And that number is only expected to grow with his upcoming acting and producing projects.
