Mark Wahlberg Says Celebrities 'Shouldn't' Talk About Politics

Don’t expect Mark Wahlberg to weigh in on the election and other political topics because he doesn’t think it’s a celebrity’s place to give an opinion.

“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t,” the 45-year-old actor told Task & Purpose when asked about the amount of celebrities who denounced Donald Trump leading up to the election.

“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway,” Mark added. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.”

“A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble,” he said in the interview. “They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family. Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”

    Hypocrite. Freedom of speech , just like you giving your opinion. They can talk about it as much as they damn well please. Try to make yourself sound like a common person. What a jerk. Still trying to get your record clean for being a violent racist Mark?

    I wish the celebs would stop giving medical and health advice … they are directly hurting people with inaccurate health information

    I’m not a fan of Marks but I agree 100% with what he said.
