Here’s Why Thanksgiving Is So Important to Mark Wahlberg

Mark Wahlberg opened up about why Thanksgiving is his favorite holiday at the premiere of Patriots Day.

The actor, who attended the screening of his latest film at AFI Fest 2016 in Los Angeles, Calif. on Thursday (Nov. 17, 2016), told ET why Thanksgiving is so important to him.

“I don’t want my wife [Rhea Durham] to hear this, but for me it’s the most important holiday,” he said. “It’s just always been since I was very young and because of my troubled past, the one holiday that I missed was Thanksgiving. So for me, it’s the most important.”

“We just had a mini Thanksgiving last week in Boston with my mom and some of my brothers, so it was really nice getting everybody together,” Wahlberg revealed.

The 45-year-old also shared a moment from their trip on Instagram:

Great to have some father-son bonding time last night.
