Wahlberg Bullied Into Stunts

Actor MARK WAHLBERG was forced to perform dare-devil stunts in new movie THE ITALIAN JOB - because sexy co-star CHARLIZE THERON branded him a wimp.

The muscle-clad screen star admits he had no plans to get behind the wheel and race around in the high-speed heist flick, until Theron began to tease him.

He says, "I don't like doing all the action stuff and the dangerous stuff.

"But the director asked me to and Charlize was already in her car revving up the engine, basically calling me a wimp if I wouldn't do it.

"So I had to do more than I would normally. But it works for the movie."
