Mark Wahlberg to Tom Cruise: ‘How F*cking Dare You’ Compare Acting to Afghanistan
by Matt Wilstein | 3:36 pm, November 13th, 2013



Mark Wahlberg had some harsh words anyone who compares acting in Hollywood to fighting in the military during Q&A following the world premiere of his new film Lone Survivor Tuesday night. While Wahlberg did not mention Tom Cruise by name, he did allude to alleged comments that actor recently made comparing shooting on location to fighting in Afghanistan.

Wahlberg was asked a question about the shoot for his new film, in which he portrays one of three real-life Navy SEALS on a mission in Afghanistan when he unleashed this impassioned rant:

Quote
“For actors to sit there and talk about ‘Oh I went to SEAL training,’ and I slept on the — I don’t give a bleep what you did. You don’t do what these guys did, you just don’t For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as somebody in the military’s. How bleep dare you? While you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.
I don’t give a shit if you’re getting 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 bleep chicken. Or your steak. Bottle of Cabernet, or whatever the bleep it is.”


Cruise’s comments surfaced in legal documents that were obtained–and possibly distorted– by TMZ. While the site initially used the headline “Tom Cruise: My Job’s As Hard As FIGHTING IN AFGHANISTAN,” they later added an update that tampered the actor’s views a bit.

The actual transcript read:

Quote
Lawyer: “Now, your counsel has publicly equated your absence from Suri for these extended periods of time as being analogous to someone fighting in Afghanistan. Are you aware of that?”
Cruise: “I didn’t hear the Afghanistan, but that’s what it feels like, and certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal.”


Regardless, Wahlberg clearly saw his most recent public appearance as an opportunity to let the world know just how off-base he believes any comparison between acting and military service to be.

Whalberg just jumped up ten points in my book (he was already up there for his USO work).

I know you were afraid. Who wouldn't be? War, terror, disease. There were a myriad of problems which conspired to corrupt your reason and rob you of your common sense. Fear got the best of you, and in your panic you turned to the now high chancellor, Adam Sutler. He promised you order, he promised you peace, and all he demanded in return was your silent, obedient consent.

I don't know his politics but I do appreciate his support for our troops.

Cruise makes $10-20 million a movie, plus royalties and profits. Our soldiers do so much more than Cruise making an action movie, while not making enough money to support their families.  They lose body parts, some are blinded, others are deaf, among the many injuries they suffer. Cruise should be ashamed of himself. He had the time to visit his daughter, but chose otherwise. There's no excuse, and he knows it.

The 'foul mouth delivery' is the northeast equivalent  of an exclamation point. As a lifelong New Yorker, I found the delivery a little refreshing, not a little lacking. Hell, in New york, we'd have phrased that a LOT f*cking bluer. Just sayin'.  :smokin:

I'm not big on the 'f' word, either. However, sometimes I get so mad at Obummer and his groupies, that the word just falls out! Of course, I live alone, and I don't care what the cats think!

I grew up in Montana.  F*** was a part of our general discourse.  Former Sen. Conrad Burns, who is a friend of my family, should have patented it!

They can nail me on the accent alone. But, whern I have to, if I want to, I can 'talk' WASP with the best of them. I did when I was a prosecutor. Now [retired], not so much. F*ck 'em.  :whistle:

That is an ability I envy. Being able to shift accents. Vocab is easy, accent is hard.

That particular word has phenomenal use.  It, or derivations of it, can be a noun or verb.  It can be adjective or adverb.  It is also as common as the word "the" in the military so it seems appropriate to the situation. :silly:

Is it true that the F-word came from police usage of File Under Carnal Knowledge?  I heard that somewhere.

This is actually a word I say often - it just feels so good to let go with it!  Nothing else works as well - "fudge!" just doesn't quite cut it.  My mother was a cusser, I learned to cuss at her knee and she learned to cuss at her daddy's knee.   

In this usage, I think Mark Wahlberg has used precisely the right word!

Like all good cuss words, it is Saxon. Fokken. Means to strike - hence where we get the phrase "I'd hit it."

Go ahead!  Make sure the British get credit for this useful word. :silly:

You should try going through life with a hard hillbilly-from-the-coal-fields-of-Kentucky accent (which I am completely proud to exhibit).  Luckily, most of the people around me talk the same way - but yeah - in certain situations you hide it the best you can.

You missed a word. "to breed with sheep."  :laugh:

'Shooter' is one of my favorite movies.

There are a whole bunch of democrat politicians who hide the fact they are white when they go to black churches to give a speech. :0001:
