Actor Mark Wahlberg admits that his pot-smoking days extended into fatherhood, though he says he soon had to drop the habit for the sake of his kids.
“I stopped smoking weed for my kids,” Mark said at the weekend’s Palm Springs Film Festival, where he was accepting Variety‘s Indie Impact Award. “One day, we were driving and you could smell it from somewhere. My daughter asked what the smell was so I told her it was a skunk. Then she said, ‘Sometimes Daddy smells like that!’ to me and my wife. So I knew I had quit.”
Mark and his wife Rhea Durham are parents to kids Ella Rae, 7, Michael, 4, Brendon, 2, and Grace, who turns 1 today.
