Hollywood heartthrob Mark Wahlberg is a hard man to resist - according to his Italian Job co-star Charlize Theron.

The South African model-turned-thespian is happily romancing British star Stuart Townsend but couldn't resist the Boogie Nights actor when he begged her to take a part in the movie.

She explains, "Mark was really the reason why I did it. He called me up and said, 'We'll have fun. I'll make sure you have a really great time. He's such a caretaker."
