Mark Wahlberg: Leonardo DiCaprio & I Used to Have a Feud!

Mark Wahlberg: Leonardo DiCaprio & I Used to Have a Feud!

Mark Wahlberg takes the cover of The Hollywood Reporter‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 42-year-old Lone Survivor actor had to share with the mag:

On getting cast in The Basketball Diaries: “Leonardo [DiCaprio] was like, ‘Over my dead f—ing body. Marky Mark’s not going to be in this f—ing movie.’ Because we’d had a thing — I didn’t even realize it, [but] I was a bit of a dick to him at a charity basketball game. So he was like, ‘This f—ing asshole is not going to be in this movie.’ So I come in and I do the audition and I kind of look at him and he kind of looks at me, and then we do a scene, and they’re like, ‘Hmm, this f—ing dude’s pretty good, right?’ The next thing you know, boom, we’re hanging out.”

On training for Lone Survivor: “I was tired after Pain & Gain, losing the weight, gaining the weight, and then we went right into [this]. And this is not like, ‘Hey guys, I’m going to get a coffee.’ No. You’re there. You’re following orders. I mean, the [military advisers] literally had the OK in the middle of a big action sequence to say, ‘Cut! Stop! Bullshit! This is how it’s supposed to look.’”

On blaming himself for the Entourage movie troubles after calling the cast greedy: “I called everybody and apologized. [They] came back to the table and a week later it was fixed.”

  • pika

    leo thinks hes the shit but he is still the academy’s b*tch. i dont hate him (his movies are good) but he is quite arrogant to me.

  • Jessy

    @pika he’s talking about something that happened ages ago. They’ve been friends for years.

  • marylou

    Leo is one of the very few people that Mark Wahlberg actually likes in Hollywood. It was Leo who turned down the role Boogie Nights and suggested to the studios to hire Mark for the part and the rest is history.

  • lol

    LOL they are friends now.

  • redwine11

    I like Mark. Sooo glad he’s in the new Tranformers.

  • sweet ashoo

    oh this’s not the best year for Leo & his celebrity friends .at the first was george clooney & now Mark lol

  • dharma

    Who cares what Marky Mark thinks about Leo or anybody else? I haven’t yet figured out why he gets cast in anything. I’ll never forget him saying that, basically, if he had been on that flight from Boston, it never would have been flown into the World Trade Center, he would have saved the day. Inbecile.

  • Love It

    I agree he is a douche but it’s his tough upbringing that makes him talk tough, like he’s still back in the ‘hood. But he is a good actor within a range and knows how to pick roles for his limited range.

  • Julia

    Why are they talking about a movie that’s 18 years old?
    Also they’re clearly over it, they’ve been in movies together, for instance “The Departed”.
