Washington: Mark Wahlberg has revealed that he just hates getting spray tans done on his body after getting it done regularly for his new movie because he was so pale.

The `Date Night` star, who is well known for his love of fitness, plays a bodybuilder in the new flick ` Pain and Gain`, Contactmusic reported.

The actor told that he does not do anything really weird, in respect to gym routines, but the weirdest thing and the most uncomfortable thing he has ever done was for this movie, having to get a spray tan every week.

The 41-year-old added to the website that he does not like the sun and it`s not good for him, but the film`s director, Michael Bay, insisted that he be as tan as possible, so he`d make the former rapper get a spray tan.

Wahlberg further added that he would do it on his hotel room balcony of which was on the 17th floor and he though that he`d be free from all the cameras and paparazzi, and there he was getting photographed in his underwear getting a spray tan.

The film is about a trio of bodybuilders in Florida who get caught up in an extortion ring and a kidnapping scheme that goes terribly wrong.
