Mark Wahlberg hospitalised

Recently married actor and producer Mark Wahlberg has had a serious health scare on the set of his new film, ‘The Fighter’. The ‘Boogie Nights’ star, who tied the knot with his long-term girlfriend and mother of his three children, Rhea Durham, less than three weeks ago, wound up in hospital after accidentally inhaling dangerous amounts of smoke from a smoke machine. The star woke up the next day “gasping for breath” and was rushed to hospital where doctors immediately hooked him up to a special breathing machine to clear his lungs. Ever the dedicated actor, 38-year-old Mark was back to work later the same day.
