Remember when Tom Cruise compared being an actor to fighting the war in Afghanistan? Ugh, he’s such a douche. And I’m not the only one who thinks so! Mark Wahlberg WENT OFF on Tom last night. And while he didn’t mention Tom by name – there’s NO mistaking who he was talking about.
“For actors to sit there and talk about ‘Oh I went to SEAL training,’ and I slept on the — I don’t give a f–k what you did,” Wahlberg, 42, said Tuesday at the AFI Fest screening of his new movie “Lone Survivor,” according to The Wrap.
“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 f–king dare you. While you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.”
The actor seemed to be indirectly addressing comments made by Tom Cruise, after legal papers revealed the “Valkyrie” star responded to a lawyer’s question comparing the extended time away from his daughter Suri while filming a movie to a soldier’s tour in Afghanistan.
Cruise, 51, said it felt like being away at war especially during his last movie, “Oblivion.” He also said working on the latest “Mission: Impossible” flick was like enduring Olympic training.
But Wahlberg — who plays Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in his latest flick — doesn’t buy it.
“I don’t give a s–t if you get your a– busted,” he said during a Q&A after the flick. “You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order f–king chicken. Or your steak. Whatever the f–k it is.”
The only similarity, Walhberg said, was bonding with his fellow actors – Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch and Emile Hirsch – whom he calls “brothers,” the way that servicemen and women are able to bond during their tours.
Good for you Mark! Seriously Tom, STFU.
