Mark Wahlberg: I Wasn't Slamming Tom Cruise!

Mark Wahlberg heads back to his car after lunching at The Grill restaurant on Thursday (November 14) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 42-year-old actor made headlines the day before for comments he made blasting actors who compare their work to being in the military. While many believed he was referencing Tom Cruise, he says that is not the case.

“I didn’t know that it was Tom Cruise who had said that,” Mark told TMZ. “Somebody had just mentioned that people were comparing [acting and being in the military]. I love Tom Cruise. He’s a great actor. I have the utmost respect for [him], but I have the utmost respect for military guys; it’s just unfair for anybody to comment on that.”

10+ pictures inside of Mark Wahlberg out for lunch…

    just shut already you homophobic racist

  • Just sayin’

    Don’t backtrack Mark. Cruise is a total hose bag for even thinking that his so called acting is even in the same ballpark as what somebody in the military has to do. Cruise is a narcissistic, egotistical moron who can barely string a sentence together and should be called out. Don’t back down Mark. Tell it like it is.

    @ Sunny….my sentiments exactly..he is a horrible racist, homophobe and he still hasn’t apologised for beating that poor man and blinding him. Can’t bear to look at his ugly moronic face. Moral indignation indeed. As for his comments he should read Wikileaks logs and be requesting the military not be there in the first place as they are being used to make a few of the elite a few billion richer whilst destroying not only their own lives but of the innocent civilians who haven’t done anything to anyone but I guess doing some research is beyond his tiny brain.

    Walhberg said a couple of years ago that if he had been on one of those planes that was hijacked on 9/11 he would have killed all the terrorists. So he is the wrong one to be calling out a actor for being an egotistical arrogant a s s.

    Exactly. He’s great at saying what’s appropriate for other people when eh’s put his foot in his own mouth more than a few times. It doesn’t matter if it was Tom Cruise, it was a stupid statement and Tom should have had enough sense not to make it. I doubt very seriously that someone said “PEOPLE were comparing acting to being in the military.” They told him it was Tom Cruise. Now he’s back tracking. The man has no balls at all.
