Guy Smarts: What is Mark Wahlberg's net worth? Here's what we know about the actor's career earnings

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 DayDaddy’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.
