London, July 30 (IANS) American actor Mark Wahlberg has been honoured with a star at Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The “Boogie Nights” actor insists he couldn’t believe it when he was first told he would receive the prestigious accolade.

“When I heard I was getting this star, I felt like it was a practical joke,” quoted him as saying.

Wahlberg credited his success in Hollywood to rediscovering his Catholic faith.

He said: “I was raised around the Church, but then I strayed off and started hanging out with guys in the neighbourhood.

“When I got into trouble, I turned to God. Once I started to refocus my faith, really good things started happening for me.

“And even when bad things happened, it was a lot easier to deal with. It’s become the most important part of my life.”
