Mark Wahlberg was a troublemaking kid that grew up fast, but his daughter may have him beat. Then again, he probably didn't go see Disney movies.

Wahlberg, the star of "The Fighter," appeared on "The Tonight Show" on Monday night and dished about, among other things, his four children. The star said that he generally only sees kids' movies at this point -- "Toy Story 3" had him in tears -- but his daughter had a special someone at a recent film.

"She gave a boy in her class my cell phone number, he calls me and says, 'Hey, Mr. Wahlberg, I'm taking your daughter to the movies.' I'm like, what? Seven years old! I say at least seven more years."

So what'd he do?

"He's seven too and I'm like okay, let me talk to your father. So me and the father talk, we take them to the movies, they don't say a word to each other."

Wahlberg teared up at that film, too -- "Tangled" told the story of a daughter taken away from her family. Watch out, seven year old Romeo. This guy was once known as Marky Mark.

'The Fighter' star also talks getting snubbed for a Best Actor Oscar, as well as a certain bad habit he recently broke.
