Hollywood mega icon Mark Wahlberg nearly lost his lid earlier this week while discussing alleged comments made by superstar Tom Cruise where he compared his work to troops fighting in Afghanistan.
Although Cruise’s statements were grossly taken out of context, as a defense attorney goaded him into making inflammatory comments during a libel suit, damage was done. We don’t know if Wahlberg was updated on the situation, but his statements still ring true despite Cruise never actually comparing his work to a soldier’s fighting in Afghanistan.
“For actors to sit there and talk about, ‘Oh I went to SEAL training,’ and I slept on the – I don’t give a fuck what you did,” Whalberg said. “You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as somebody in the military’s. How fucking dare you. While you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.”
The Hollywood actor continued, “I don’t give a shit if you get your ass busted. You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order fucking chicken. Or your steak. Whatever the fuck it is.”
At the end of his lengthy tirade, Wahlberg ended up realizing the err of his way and apologized for “losing my shit,” saying that in the end, he was “proud to be a part” of the movie “Lone Survivor.”
