The 42-year-old actor loved working with his 58-year-old co-star on the movie and relished the chance to question him on a number of topics, reports contactmusic.com.
"I've always admired him. We've known each other socially a little bit here and there. We've got a lot in common. Both have four kids. I was able to constantly ask him for advice and pick his brain, both personally and professionally," Wahlberg told OK! magazine.
"He said, whatever your wife says goes. Just say yes all the time, just be involved," he added. The "Ted" actor lost 30 pounds for the movie and admitted that he had to work hard to get in shape.
