Wahlberg Laments Lack Of Female Role Models

Actor MARK WAHLBERG wants to move his family out of Hollywood - because he doesn't want his daughter to grow up emulating her neighbours PARIS HILTON and BRITNEY SPEARS.
The Departed star insists his main priority is providing positive and educational surroundings for his young children - daughter Ella Rae, five, and sons Michael, two, and newborn Brendan Joseph.
And he admits that celebrity-obsessed Hollywood may not be the best place for kids to grow up.
He says, "We won't stay there forever but it's very difficult to raise normal kids in an environment like that. And I was thinking there's no real role models for girls.
"You've got Britney Spears, you've got Paris Hilton; they're nice enough people but I don't want my daughter to aspire to be like that.
"I'm much more concerned with being a good dad and being there for them and teaching them and hopefully helping them avoid some of the mistakes that I've made."
