Mark Wahlberg made his latest event a family affair when he brought his wife and children to the New York premiere of Transformers: Age Of Extinction.

The 43-year-old, who stars in the fourth Transformers film as inventor and single dad Cade Yeager, posed on the red carpet with wife Rhea Durham and three of their kids - 10-year-old daughter Ella, and sons Michael, eight, and Brendan, five. Their youngest daughter Grace, who is four, was absent.

His co-stars Kelsey Grammer, Nicola Peltz and Li Bing Bing also walked the red carpet at the Ziegfeld Theatre, alongside t he film's director Michael Bay, executive producer Steven Spielberg, and fellow filmmaker Jerry Bruckheimer.

Mark told ABC's Good Morning America that he prepared his children, who make cameos in the fourth instalment of the shape-shifting robots franchise, for disappointment if their scenes didn't make the final cut.

"I've seen the movie a couple of times now. I've seen one of them, and a glimpse of another. Hopefully they won't be too disappointed," he said.

"I told them that's the nature of this business. Sometimes you can end up on the editing room floor," he added.

Transformers: Age Of Extinction will open in UK cinemas on July 10.

Treat such as gourmet food, beautiful clothes and intriguing books are investments in your happiness. Others may object at being put farther down on your list of priorities, but that's their problem.More
