Mark Walhberg Makes a 'Ted' Joke In Front of the Pope

Mark Wahlberg speaks as Pope Francis makes an appearance at the Festival of Families on Saturday (September 26) in Philadelphia, Penn.

The 44-year-old actor made a Ted joke while speaking at the event, which also involved comedian Jim Gaffigan, singer Aretha Franklin, and 14-year-old opera singer Bobby Hill.

“That right there was truly the voice of an angel,” Mark said of Bobby. “But then he whispered in my ear that he loved the movie Ted, and I told him that was not appropriate for a boy of his age. Holy Father, please forgive me. I’ve always hoped that the good Lord has a sense of humor when it comes and pertains to many of the movies that I’ve made.”
