Michael Pena and Mark Wahlberg in 'The Shooter'


Mark Wahlberg only pretends to act tough when training for his action films.The Oscar nominated actor, who is currently starring in 'Shooter' as a marine sniper and is also training to play boxer Mickey Ward in 'The Fighter', hates gruelling exercise because he is lazy. Mark told BANG Showbiz: "I didn't enjoy training at all. I pretend to, I act like I enjoy it but I'm pretty lazy."It's something I do not look forward to - getting up at five every morning to have some guy scream at you. It is not my idea of fun."The 35-year-old star also revealed he was bullied by the marines who trained him to be a sniper for his latest film. He said: "It was very tough. Once you're on their turf you're dealing with real marines and they like to push you around a little bit."They like to test you out and see if you are going to call your agent. But I toughed it out."

HALLE BERRY WILL NEVER MARRY AGAIN !

Halle Berry Won't Walk Down Aisle Again

Halle Berry will never marry again.The Oscar-winning actress, who is currently dating model Gabriel Aubry, insists she has no intention of walking down the aisle for a third time. She said in an interview with InStyle magazine: "I will never, never get married again. I've come to a place now where I think two people can share their lives without the ring, without the piece of paper."Halle - who was previously wed to US baseball player David Justice and singer Eric Benét - admits when she first met Gabriel on a Versace advertising shoot in November 2005 she wasn't looking for love. However, the 40-year-old actress eventually fell for Gabriel, 31, because she liked his shy personality and enjoyed the fact she had to chase him. Halle revealed: "After my relationship with actor Michael Ealy ended I was feeling like, well, it wasn't that I didn't want to be in a relationship, it's just that I thought it would be OK to be on my own."But he was disarmingly sweet and caring and different. In the past, I've been attracted to big personalities. Gabriel was shy. He hardly talked to me at first."I had to work at this a little. It wasn't a slam dunk, it wasn't the guy just showering affection on me. It made it more interesting. We were equally matched - put it that way."

Jenna Jameson

Scarlett Johansson (Left) is hoping adult movie superstar Jenna Jameson (top) can win her an Oscar. Scarlett has been singled out by the X-rated actress to play her in a movie adaptation of her autobiography 'How To Make Love Like A Porn Star : A Cautionary Tale'. The 'Lost In Translation' star is said to be very keen on the role and is confident it could pave the way for Oscar glory. A source said: "She knows Jenna has had a colourful life, but she isn't prudish about it at all. She loved her book and thinks it would be a great film. Scarlett believes it could earn her awards like Julianne Moore's Oscar nomination for her role in 'Boogie Nights'."'Boogie Nights' is a film based on the life of porn legend John Holmes. Jenna, 32, revealed her admiration for Scarlett last month. She said: "We're looking at Scarlett Johansson. She's my choice. I think she's beautiful."Jenna, the star of such films as 'Jenna Loves Pain', 'I Love Lesbians 10'and 'Wicked Weapon', is currently in talks with producers and filming could begin next year. Jenna's life has been marred by personal tragedies. She lost her mother before her second birthday, and as a teenager was brutally gang raped. Jenna went on to work as a stripper before becoming the world's most successful porn star.
