'It’s taken me to unimaginably dark places': Mark Wahlberg Can Never Forgive Himself for Starring in 2009 Supernatural Thriller Film

Mark Wahlberg regrets starring in the 2009 supernatural thriller film, The Lovely Bones. He described the experience as "emotional torture" and said that the film took him to "unimaginably dark places." The story follows a father's obsession with his daughter's murder case, which was chilling for Wahlberg as a parent. Ryan Gosling was initially offered the role of the father, but he declined, and Wahlberg joined the cast. Despite its critical acclaim, Wahlberg's experience on set lingers, making it one of his most challenging roles to date.
