Wahlberg Declares 'The Italian Job' His Best Ever Movie

Hollywood hunk Mark Wahlberg has declared his upcoming movie The Italian Job the best film he's ever made. Wahlberg says the high-speed heist flick, which also stars Charlize Theron and Edward Norton, far outstrips any of his other flicks, including Planet Of The Apes and Rock Star. He explains, "It just works on every level. First of all, it's surrounded by the best young actors in the business and they all brought their own personalities to the roles. We made a character-driven piece with well-rounded characters. There's no computer-generated effects in this movie. It's kind of back to the basics, but it works as a whole. It has the best stunt sequences and action sequences I've ever seen."

Aniston Must Bring Her Nude Photos To Court
Pretty actress Jennifer Aniston has been ordered to bring her nude back catalogue to an American court room. The Friends star was told to hand over any naked images of her that have appeared in print or on film. The wife of Brad Pitt is suing publishers Man's World, who published snaps of Jen sunbathing topless in her garden. A friend maintains the actress is a private person, saying, "It will be very difficult for her to talk about nudity in open court." Jennifer will be forced to hand over naked cover shots she did for a magazine in 1996, nude pictures for another publication and wet t-shirt contest photos, plus footage of last year's Rock Star, where she appeared in a love scene with Mark Wahlberg. A pal adds, "Jennifer was devastated by the photographs that were published and felt violated in her own backyard, a place where she should have been safe. She is determined to stop those topless photographs from appearing again."

Wahlberg Took On Role As A Bet
Mark Wahlberg took on the role as a rock star in the appropriately named Rock Star because he was dared to do it. When Wahlberg started making movies in the mid 90s, he promised his fans that he would never sing or take his top off on the big screen - but now he's done both playing the character Izzy. The former rap star and underwear model says, "I know I promised I would never sing but people told me I couldn't pull off this role. Friends argued with me that I wouldn't be believable as a rock star. So I did it."

Wahlberg's Extra Nipple Removed
Mark Wahlberg's third nipple nearly got in the way when the star filmed his latest movie Rock Star. The actor and former model is famously blessed with an extra nip, that made an appearance when the Planet Of The Apes star stripped for his role in porn hit Boogie Nights. But producers of Rock Star - which opens this weekend - decided the nipple would be "too distracting" and airbrushed it out during editing. A crew member explains, "There was a big debate over whether or not to remove it. "They decided it was just too weird, so it was digitally removed. How many rock stars do you know with three nipples?" In the movie, Wahlberg plays the lead singer of a tribute band alongside Friends star Jennifer Aniston. On her hit series, the character of Chandler, played by Matthew Perry, had a third nipple.

One crew member says, "Mark's expression was hilarious. I think for a moment his whole life flashed before him. He was mortified." The scene was so funny, director Stephen Herek decided to keep the outtake in the movie - it's played over the credits at the end of the film.
