Mark Wahlberg has revealed that Justin Bieber once sent him an underwear selfie, and the actor was rather apoplectic with the singer when he received it.
Mark Wahlberg and Justin Bieber are actually close friends, and the “Baby” singer wanted to share his success with the Ted 2 actor after he’d been asked to pose for the brand. Wahlberg himself had famously performed a photo shoot for Calvin Klein back in the 1990s.
According to the Mirror, Bieber is currently fronting the latest campaign for Calvin Klein, which has seen him strip down to just a pair of boxers for the shoot. But while speaking to E! News, via MTV News, Wahlberg explained how Bieber looked to impress him with the photos before anyone had ever seen them. However, Wahlberg was left feeling rather disgusted by them instead of impressed.
“He sent me a note saying he was doing it and I was like, ‘Oh, cool,’ and then he sent me a picture and I was like, ‘Dude don’t send me a picture of you in your underwear. That’s crossing the line. I’ll probably see it when I’m driving down the street, and I’ll still try to avoid it.”

Back in January, Mark Wahlberg proved just how close he is to Justin Bieber by lambasting the singer’s Calvin Klein shoot, insisting that his advert wasn’t as hot as his from the 90s.
A source for Hollywood Life explained that the pair originally grew close after spending time together at the gym, while the insider added, “[Mark] sent him a message congratulating him, and of course, he busted his balls a little. Mark told Justin that he’s still not as hot as he was back in the day, but that’s just how Mark is.”
