Mark Wahlberg who played in "The Fighter" paid a lot of trainers so that this movie can break the box-office,he reached without any hesitation the amount of $500 000.Wow!I’d say is a lot of money,but a minor amount comparing with other big movies like Transformers,etc..
“There are many, many boxing movies, and I love most of them. But I knew that the thing that would set us apart was if the fights looked more real, and I looked more like a boxer than anyone else who’s done it in the past,” he said.
“I spent more money paying my trainers and having them travel with me than I got paid, by a good half a million dollars.”
Well at least he received the prize for "Best Actor Golden Globe" nomination.
