    Mark Wahlberg wants to be left alone at Mass

    Mark Whalberg is Catholic, and goes to Mass every Sunday.

    Problem is, people know it:
    Entourage has become a curse for Mark Wahlberg on Sundays - because people approach him in church with story lines and requests to be on the hit show. Wahlberg, who is the producer of the series - which is based on his early days in Hollywood, admits a family trip to church has become a business meeting and he'd like others to leave him alone when he's worshiping.

    He says, "I go to church and people ask me if they can be on Entourage, what's gonna happen. I go to church to worship, I don't go to church to talk about it. The stuff that I did with my entourage back in the day is stuff that I'm not proud of and I'm asking forgiveness for; I don't want things brought up in church, but, if you go to church in Beverly Hills, those kind of things happen."

    And his fellow worshipers don't just bug him about Entourage.

    He adds, "I get scripts, resumes, books - people tried to come up to me with a children's book before and I wouldn't take it. They got upset with me. This is church." (StarPulse)
    Whalberg's wiki page says he "credits his faith and a priest from his childhood for helping him turn his life around and recognize the seriousness of his faith." He has three children with model Rhea Durham, whom he has never married, but plans to marry her next August, in a Catholic wedding:
    "Catholic church, small, family only, no media!" [Whalberg] told Us. Laughing, he added, "And there will be no wedding pictures sold to any magazines!"
    Mark and Rhea named their youngest son Brendan. "It's for St. Brendan" he told Us. No kidding!

    Perfect? Nope. Trying? Seems like it.
