Now Wahlberg admits he hates watching footage of his pop star days and is often the subject of his friends' jokes.
He says, "Ah man, embarrassed. I thought I was so cool back then, but when I see the footage, I was such an a**.
"I remember seeing this thing on VH1, some Sexy People Of The 90s Show. My brother Paul was watching with me and my assistant - they were just killing themselves with laughter. To top it off, I was number one! So for ages after whenever they'd call, they'd be, 'Can we speak to the Sexiest Man Of The 90s please?' They keep killing me."
