Mark Wahlberg turns into a hip-hop fan when he's in New York.

The actor - who has four children with his wife, model Rhea Durman - admits he likes listening to urban tunes whilst driving around in his car, but only when his kids aren't with him.

He explained to "It's weird because in New York, I'll actually listen to a little bit of hip- hop. I don't listen to hip-hop normally; I listen to oldies, classic rock and K-EARTH101 radio station, which is something I couldn't imagine myself listening to, but it relaxes me.

"I'm not really riding around with my kids bumping up the radio. I don't necessarily do it to get into character. If I'm the car, I'll turn on the radio though."

Mark and Rhea married in August last year, and have daughters Ella Rae, six, six-month-old Grace Margaret, and sons Michael, four, and 23-month-old Brendan Joseph together.

Last month, Mark was honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 39-year-old star was presented with the plaque by his 'Other Guys' co-star Will Ferrell.
