Mark Wahlberg Spent Entire "Fighter" Paycheck on Personal Trainers

Mark Wahlberg was in fighting shape for his latest movie The Fighter, playing Irish/American boxer Mickey Ward.  And he better be in fighting shape after spending tons of money on personal trainers to look the role.

He admitted he spent more money - $500,000 more - on personal trainers than he was paid. Eeek!

“There are many, many boxing movies, and I love most of them. But I knew that the thing that would set us apart was if the fights looked more real, and I looked more like a boxer than anyone else who’s done it in the past,” he said.

“I spent more money paying my trainers and having them travel with me than I got paid, by a good half a million dollars.”
