Hollywood A-lister Mark Wahlberg is speaking out about the impact of moving his family out of Tinseltown, noting his kids have "thrived" since the family's exit last year.

"It's really giving the kids a chance to thrive," Wahlberg told Fox News of his Nevada relocation.

Despite what some might believe about Las Vegas, the "Father Stu" star said the area to which his family moved has a great deal of focus on community and uplifting values.

"It just has the best of both worlds," Wahlberg said. "I know a lot of people, when they think Las Vegas, they think the Strip. But just about 15, 20 minutes away, there's a whole lot of other amazing areas that are all about family and community."

March CM CoverWhile the actor said he hopes to build a studio in Las Vegas and "create lots of jobs," the move was most rooted in helping his kids have opportunities to "pursue their goals and dreams."

"My daughter's an equestrian. My son's a golfer," Wahlberg said. "My oldest daughter, now she's off to college. My son's a junior."

He added, "The kids are really happy, and it's all about them."
