Actor Mark Wahlberg Promotes Humility

The world-class actor Mark Wahlberg, a committed father, husband and church-attender, is a rare celebrity who advocates humility. In a recent (2014) interview, Wahlberg said:

I can't do things that some other actors can do, and they probably can't do some of the stuff that I can do … So for me, I don't really care if Christian Bale or Matt Damon or whoever gets to shine brighter than me in a movie. I'm there to serve the big picture; to do what I can do better than anyone else. That's what I can live with. Those are the choices I make.
