Mark Wahlberg Makes His Kids Watch Tattoo Removal Process

Celebrity dad Mark Wahlberg is trying to teach his oldest kids a lesson: don’t get tattoos.  Mark shared that he’s in the process of removing all of his tattoos and has been taking Ella and Michael along to witness the painful procedure.

“[All the tattoos] have meaning to me, but it’s both personal and professional.

I don’t want my kids getting tattoos. And I wanted them to be [removed] by the time I did The Fighter because putting make-up on and covering them up has always been a pain in the butt.”

I’ve taken my two older kids to the procedure so they see how painful it is and what I have to go through,” he reveals.

Mark also says that he’s hoping none of his kids catch the acting bug:

“I don’t want my kids to be in the entertainment business either, which is why I’m trying to build a lot of [separate] businesses.   If they feel [passionate about acting], and that’s the decision they want to make, then I’ll support them. But I’ll do everything I can to point them in another direction.”

It’s funny how most celebrity parents are adamant that they don’t want their own kids getting into showbiz.  I’m sure their own parents felt the same way.

Here’s Mark attending a photocall for ‘Contraband’ in Sydney this afternoon.

Mark Wahlberg Is Sorry For 9/11 Comments

Mark Wahlberg is back-pedaling this afternoon, apologizing for the comments he made during an interview with Men’s Journal about 9/11, claiming he would’ve landed the plane safely had he been on board.  He tells TMZ he’s very sorry:

“To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible. “To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with.  I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention.”

Mark’s initial comments to Men’s Journal if you missed it this morning:

“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”

Do you think Mark needed to apologize for the comments?

Mark Wahlberg: If I had been on a 9/11 plane, I would have taken out the terrorists, and landed the plane safely.

Mark Wahlberg is one of Hollywoods biggest action movie stars. Has he let it go to his head? Or is he actually that badass in real life?

In a new interview with Men’s Journal, Walhberg makes the claim that had he been on one of the 9/11 planes, it would not have ended the way it did that fateful day. Reportedly he decided to fly to Toronto a week before 9/11 and avoided boarding one of the planes out of Boston that crashed into the World Trade Center on September 11th.

“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” he tells the magazine. “There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.’”

Wahlberg has spoken before of the near-miss, and the action he would have taken had he been on the flight.

“We certainly would have tried to do something to fight,” he said in 2006. “I’ve had probably over 50 dreams about it.”

To his credit, Wahlberg is in impeccable shape. Part of what makes him stand out as an action star is his willingness to put himself on the line for a scene.

“[In 'Contraband'] I did all the stunts and then in ‘The Fighter’ obviously we did all the fighting and we fought and we made it real,” he recently told GQ. “If it’s necessary then we’ll do it.

It worked out; “Contraband” won the box office with a $28.5 million take this past weekend.

Apparently Mark is now a very religious man. He went on in the same interview to open up about his sex life. “I don’t get down with jerking off, dude. Look. I don’t believe in everything that the church says. I try to do the right thing. I lead a clean and pure life. I’m a married guy. I have a beautiful wife. Sex is not the most important thing to me, being horny all the time, spanking the — I mean, it’s not against the law. You can do whatever you want. And it’s not like, ‘I shouldn’t do it because of my faith. I’m just not really that into it that much anyway.”

Okay, first of all. I find his comments about 9/11 incredibly insulting. Insulting for every family member who lost someone they love on that plane. His comments insinuate that the people on the plane didn’t do enough to stop what was happening. It’s just not fair to any of the victims to say hey – if I were on the plane, none of that would have happened. Could there be a bigger narcissist than Mark Wahlberg? Man, that just really rubbed me the wrong way. It’s one thing to say you wish you were on the plane – to see if the outcome would have been different. It’s something else entirely to boldly say “it wouldn’t have went down like it did.” Only people who know what happened on that plane – died that day.

Is Jennifer Lopez Gunning For An Oscar?

Mark Wahlberg says that Jennifer Lopez is dying for the lead role in the new flick ‘Cocaine Cowboys’ and he thinks it’ll bring an Oscar to anyone who lands the part.

Mark was on ‘Sway in the Morning’ explaining that he won’t announce yet who will be playing the role of ‘Godmother’ Griselda Blanco until the script is finalized.  The movie is about the drug trade that swept through southern Florida in the 1970s and 1980s.

“It’s one of those characters that will go down in history… If I could play Griselda, I would. That’s Academy Award (material) right there.”

Are you a fan of J.Lo’s movies and do you think she could be Oscar-worthy?  I’ve loved some of her comedies like ‘The Wedding Planner‘ and ‘Monster-in-Law‘.
