Wahlberg: Welsh accent intimidating

Mark Wahlberg got to know Catherine Zeta-Jones by playing a round of golf

Mark Wahlberg has admitted he found Catherine Zeta-Jones' Welsh accent intimidating.

The pair star together in new crime thriller Broken City, along with Russell Crowe, and Mark became friends with Catherine on the golf course before they made the movie.

Mark revealed: "I'd actually played golf with her before but I've never worked with her before. The accent can be pretty intimidating but she's very down to earth and very easy to be talk to."

As for who's better at golf, Mark conceded: "She's probably a better putter."

And the Ted star also got on well with Les Miserables star Russell, although he insists they didn't hang out at karaoke bars in between takes.

"We may have had a few drinks here and there but no singing!" he said.

Broken City is released on Friday March 1.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Read the fine print on a contract. If you're not happy with the proposed terms of a deal, renegotiate. Don't be afraid to drive a hard bargain. You may not realise it, but you have a great deal of power. People are willing to pay good money for someone with your intelligence and experience. If you undersell yourself, you will set a dangerous precedent. Someone will ask you to do something that goes against your conscience. Obey your principles, even if it means making an enemy.More
