Wahlberg Nipple Removed

MARK WAHLBERG's third nipple nearly got in the way when the star filmed his latest movie ROCK STAR (2001). The actor and former model is famously blessed with an extra nip, that made an appearance when the PLANET OF THE APES (2001) star stripped for his role in porn hit BOOGIE NIGHTS (1997).

But producers of Rock Star (2001) - which opens on Friday(07Sept01) in America - 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. (IG/WNWCNB)
