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