Mark Wahlberg Was Naked For 12 Hours Filming ‘Me Time’s Scene
Mark Wahlberg stripped down to his birthday suit in a scene with co-star Kevin Hart for his new Netflix comedy Me Time.
The scene in question involves Wahlberg’s character Huck greeting his best friend Sonny (Hart) with nothing on but a pair of sneakers. All for the price of comedy, Wahlberg endured the uncomfortable nudity, telling E! News at the Tuesday (August 23) Los Angeles premiere, “Unfortunately for me, the whole day lasted 12 hours in Long Beach on the pier. And every once in a while, somebody would give me a robe or something, but [it was] not comfortable.”
Me Time follows Sonny, a suburban stay-at-home dad, who decides to spend his “me time” away from his family for the first time in years by joining his former best friend for a wild birthday weekend, complete with dance parties, sky diving, car crashes and cougar attacks.
When it comes to Hart’s idea of “me time,” the comedian said he enjoys using it to work on himself. “That 5 a.m. slot, 4:35 a.m. in the gym, that’s my time; clear my head, work on myself, no distractions. I’ve been true to that for over the course of the last five years, maybe. So far, it’s working, so if it’s not broke, I’m not gonna try to fix it.”
Me Time premieres on Netflix Friday, August 26. Watch the trailer below:
