Mark Wahlberg Doesn’t Regret Telling Hollywood to Pound Sand: ‘A Much Better Lifestyle’

Movie star Mark Wahlberg has doubled down on his decision to leave Hollywood and move his family to Nevada.

Wahlberg reached his limit with “woke” California and the politicians in that state and moved to a suburb of Las Vegas for a better quality of life.

He says it was the right move.

“It’s really giving the kids a chance to thrive,” Wahlberg said of his new home.

“It just has the best of both worlds.

“I know a lot of people, when they think Las Vegas, they think the Strip.

“But just about 15, 20 minutes away, there’s a whole lot of other amazing areas that are all about family and community.

“My daughter’s an equestrian. My son’s a golfer. My oldest daughter, now she’s off to college. My son’s a junior.

“There’s lots of opportunity here as well for me.

“We’re trying to create a studio.

“We’re trying to build the shoe factory. We want to create lots of jobs here.

“I moved to Nevada where, after this gubernatorial election, hopefully, it will go to legislation and get a bill passed so we can get a tax credit for the state — build a state-of-the-art studio here and make this Hollywood 2.0.

“We’re always looking for new opportunities and new adventures.

“I hope to create a lot of opportunity here.

“I moved to California originally to make movies.

“I’ve made three movies in the last 15 years in LA. So, as you know, it’s been difficult.

“The kids are really happy, and it’s all about them. There’s lots of opportunity for growth here.

“And the government, especially our new governor, is really looking for opportunities to create jobs outside of gaming.

“So we’re looking to create 10,000 jobs on the studio alone.

“The average salary would be $100,000 more than what it is now.

“We want to train people both in front of and behind the camera, create jobs, most importantly, first and foremost, for locals.

“And then, after that, I think we can attract a lot of people.

“The housing market is great.

“When I moved here, I brought probably like 15 or 20 people that work with me also moving here.

“They went from three-bedroom houses that they were really struggling to pay rent for.

“And now they have a six-bedroom house.

“And it’s, you know, half the cost. And, you know, they walk their dogs.

“They’re in a gated community. They’ve got the school right there two blocks down the road.

“It’s just a much better lifestyle here and more affordable,” he said.
