 Father Stu Review

 
. For six years, Wahlberg was so moved by the story of Father Stu that he paid for himself with film money. He said he used "millions and millions of dollars" to do it.

Wahlberg won £ 30 for his new film "Father Stu." To gain weight, the actor started with a first two-week diet plan for 7,000-calorie-a-day. Then, four weeks ago, she increased her diet to 11,000 calories a day.

"Twelve eggs, twelve slices of bacon, two bowls of white rice, a cup of olive oil to begin the morning," he said. "More eggs, a porterhouse steak. That's seven to eight meals a day for this."

Weight gain was one aspect of performance, but Wahlberg noted that he felt the only way to show the audience how Long had changed at the end of his life. "Everything about Stu was based on his flesh. To see him lose that but to gain the strength of thousands of men spiritually, was unbelievable. I wanted the audience to see that and understand it," he explained.

Mark Wahlberg looks inconspicuous.

Based on a true story, Father Stu is an honest, funny and inspiring drama finally about a lost soul finding its purpose in an unexpected place. When the injury ended his amateur boxing career, Stuart Long (Mark Wahlberg) moved to LA dreaming of becoming a professional. While passing as a store clerk, she meets Carmen (Teresa Ruiz), a Catholic Sunday-school teacher who seems unprotected by her bad boy charm. Determined to win, the longtime atheist begins to attend church to impress. But surviving a serious motorcycle accident leaves him wondering if he can use his second chance to help others find their way, leading to the astonishing realization that he is destined to become a Catholic priest. Despite the tragic health crisis and the doubts of Church officials and her estranged parents (Mel Gibson and Jacki Weaver), Stu pursues his calling with courage and compassion, not only encouraging those closest to him but also countless others along the way.
