Mark Wahlberg’s kids aren’t fond of his ’90s fashion sense.

Wahlberg, 51, recently sat down with his “Me Time” co-stars, Kevin Hart and Regina Hall for an interview in which he said his kids are “terribly embarrassed” by his old appearance.

“Oh, they’re terribly ashamed of it,” Wahlberg said during the Entertainment Tonight interview, speaking of his “Marky Mark”-era fashion. “Marky Mark” was the stage name that Wahlberg passed by in the 90s.

But Wahlberg added jokingly: “My son, the whole time we were on summer vacation, he’s not wearing a shirt and hanging out his underwear. He totally stole the whole look.”

“My son recently turned 16,” he revealed. “And he’s ashamed of everything I do. Even the things that people think are cool in 2022, like movies and stuff. He’s like, ‘Daddy, that’s so stupid. Dad, that’s terrible.'”

Despite his son’s criticism, Wahlberg said his entire family gathered to watch his latest comedy “Me Time.”

“I watched with my whole family [without them] know something about the story and script, and to see that the kids enjoy it just as much as the adults [was great],” he said.

“There’s a lot of humor that goes a bit over their heads, but it’s a lot of fun.” “Me Time,” starring Wahlberg, Hart, and Hall, will hit Netflix on August 26.
