Mark Wahlberg - Mark Wahlberg Chooses Nudity Over Love Scene To Keep Wife Happy

Mark Wahlberg opted to go "butt naked" in his upcoming film Broken City in exchange for director Allen Hughes cutting out a "graphic" love scene involving his character - because he feared it would upset his wife.
The Departed star wed model Rhea Durham in 2009 after eight years together and Wahlberg admits he goes to great lengths to ensure his film roles are romance-free.
He tells WENN, "If it has anything to do with me kissing somebody my wife's not gonna like it so I'll fight to get it cut out. Those are the more important issues. I usually try to choose my battles wisely."
But the Oscar-nominated actor admits convincing Hughes to drop a big sex scene in the new crime thriller cost him his dignity for another shot.
Wahlberg says, "There's a love scene in the movie that I'm shooting now (Broken City) that is very graphic and I'm like, 'I really don't want to do that. I don't think it's necessary, we've been together now seven years and the magic is probably gone in the relationship anyway!'
"She (his onscreen love interest) plays an actress and she's having this really hardcore sex scene that she shoots in the movie and doesn't tell me about it, and then I see it in the theatre and I have a big problem with that because I play an ex-cop who's a private investigator investigating the mayor of New York City. And so obviously I lose that scene but then my compromise was to be nude in the scene by myself after she's gone. I still had to be butt naked for six hours but it wasn't with somebody else!"
Russell Crowe and Catherine Zeta-Jones also star in Broken City, which is due for release in 2013.
