Remember the days when Mark Wahlberg was Marky Mark and he performed in front of thousands of people in his underwear? Who doesn’t? You might also recall that all that pants dropping earned him a deal modeling Calvin Klein underwear. Wahlberg stopped by Conan on Thursday where he was asked about a more recent Calvin Klein underwear model, his friend Justin Bieber. Besides just asking about it, Conan was kind enough to show us a side-by-side of the two.
“He is a very nice young man. He’s a friend of mine. I spent time with him. He did send me the pictures. I was like, ‘You don’t send a guy this,’” Wahlberg said, adding, “I am at 45, and a dad. A husband and father of four. I’m trying to move away from that image.”
Wahlberg said that Bieber only sent the pictures because this was a big deal for him and he was very proud of it. He also noted a major difference in the photos.
“People give him flak for kind of growing up in the spotlight. And he’s, they say, has a bit of an attitude. But you look at the look on my face. I mean, I was the biggest punk in the world. He’s very nice, young, and polite compared to what I was,” Wahlberg said.
