Mark Wahlberg says he agreed to star in sequels to the hit comedy Ted and the Transformers trilogy based on the people involved rather than the salaries on offer.
The Boston native also spoke about his friendship with Russell Crowe and hanging out with the Wu-Tang Clan on the set of his latest film Broken City.
The actor was speaking to Newsbeat entertainment reporter Nesta McGregor.
Broken City is released in the UK on 1 March.
