Mark Wahlberg has dropped a bombshell about his future in a recent interview, stating, "I don’t think that I’ll be acting that much longer at the pace I am now."

The revelation has fans and industry insiders alike buzzing with speculation.

The 52-year-old entertainer's journey in Hollywood has been nothing short of spectacular, rising from his early days as a rapper in the hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to becoming a two-time Academy Award winner.

Starting his cinematic journey with Renaissance Man in 1992, Wahlberg has graced the big screen with memorable performances, notably as Dirk Diggler in Boogie Nights, which catapulted him into critical acclaim.

He followed up with a string of blockbuster roles in films like The Departed, Ted, and the Transformers franchise. But now, as he covers Cigar Aficionado's September/October issue, Wahlberg opens up about life beyond acting.

"Well, I’m certainly working harder now than ever," Wahlberg mused when asked about his future plans. The actor has been busier than ever with a slew of recent films like Uncharted, Me Time, and Father Stu. Plus, he has a backlog of films awaiting release, such as Arthur the King and Our Man from Jersey.

"Certain businesses, you kind of build them, pass them on or you exit. Hopefully my kids, we’ll see what their interests are," he added, hinting at a potential career shift.

Moreover, Wahlberg isn't just an actor; he's been increasingly donning the producer's hat as well. "I started becoming a producer out of necessity," he explained. Not wanting to wait in line behind big names like Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, and Leonardo DiCaprio, Wahlberg took control of his destiny. "I was always proactive in trying to find material and things that I could produce, that I knew was right for me, create my own destiny," he said.

Wahlberg isn't new to the concept of hard work and discipline, either. He went viral in 2018 for his grueling daily routine that began at 2:30AM, a regimen that he confirms has been slightly modified in recent years. How he manages to juggle it all is a testament to his dedication to his craft and enterprises.

As fans eagerly await his upcoming projects, the overarching question remains: what will the future hold for this showbiz juggernaut?

With talks of focusing on other business endeavors and possibly passing the torch to the next generation, Wahlberg's career is at an intriguing crossroads.
