Mark Wahlberg spent big to prepare for ‘The Fighter’

HollywoodNews.com: Mark Wahlberg was apparently so intent on getting ready for his role in ‘The Fighter’ that he spent quite a bit of money on perfecting his boxing moves.

The actor reveals to ‘Sports Illustrated’ that he reportedly ended up spending $500,000 more than he made on his trainers in an effort to make the film believable, states Hollyscoop. “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,” Wahlberg says about his extensive work paying off.

And now that he has been nominated for a Golden Globe for the role, it appears that Wahlberg’s monetary investment has been worth it in more ways than one.

Do you think Mark Wahlberg will win a Golden Globe?
