In order to play a professional bodybuilder in Michael Bay’s new film, Pain & Gain, Mark Wahlberg was reportedly eating 10 meals a day, sometimes even waking up in the middle of the night to pound a supplement shake. In fact, he teamed up with GNC to create his own brand of supplements called “Totally Not Steroids and a Ton of HGH” or something like that.
But Wahlberg’s dedication to the role was possibly an inspiration for another of the film’s stars, Israeli model Bar Paly, who plays a stripper in the film. Except Bay, who casts only the greatest female thespians, wanted her to really fit the role and Paly had to add about 20 more pounds for that. She told reporters at the film’s premiere on Monday night that she had to lift weights and chug 5,000-calorie shakes to make her body proportionate.
And then Bay probably told her something like, “Don’t worry, I’ll help you burn those calories tonight” while thrusting his hips, because he just seems like he would.

Wee little action star Mark Wahlberg got a spray tan on his hotel balcony in Miami yesterday, then stood there feeling his balls with a typically douchy Mark Wahlberg look on his face. Presumably this was done for the movie he’s filming where he plays a bodybuilder (HA!), or perhaps because he’s just a fag who does this kind of thing.

If you know anything at all about bodybuilding, then you know how laugh-out-loud stupid it was for Michael Bay to cast Mark Wahlberg as a bodybuilder alongside Dwayne Johnson in the movie ‘Pain and Gain’.
As you can see in these pictures taken on set today in Miami, he doesn’t even know how to cycle right so he doesn’t get bloated. He looks absolutely nothing like a real bodybuilder. He looks like an arena league linebacker that running backs would point at as they jog into the end zone.
