Mark Wahlberg

I Would Have Fought

9/11 Hijackers & Landed Plane

1/18/2012 9:05 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0118_mark_wahlberg_BN_01
Mark Wahlberg claims he could have done what hundreds of other doomed passengers couldn't ... fought off the multiple 9/11 terrorists and saved one of the hijacked planes.

Wahlberg just gave an interview with Men's Journal ... in which he states, "If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn't have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, 'OK, we're going to land somewhere safely, don't worry.'"

So the question ... is Wahlberg's braggadocio insulting to the dead passengers and their families?

He has no idea what went on inside that plane so to assume that they DIDN'T fight like hell is completely assanine. The individuals on that plane deserve to rest in peace, not have some celebrity claim they didn't do enough.

This idiot is a high school dropout. That's why I never go to any of his movies. He's a loser & a joke. What the hell does he know about ANYTHING? Disrespectful a**hole. If it weren't for his looks, then he would be lying in a gutter or sweeping floors in Boston.

You guys can give him crap for saying this if you want to but, I think most people feel like had I been there...because we all wanted a different outcome. It's not a bad thought to have wanting to save lives!

Everyone says what they would or could do in this or that situation. What you don't realize is what you ACTUALLY can or can not do in that exact situation.

Love to Mr. Charles Mills who died in the Twin Towers and to the THOUSANDS of others who died on that horrible day.

An idiotic statement by some clown who plays a bad a$$ on TV. And he would have done it all from 1st class, because that's the way he rolls.
Apologize dufus before you hurt your image even more.

tracy    

so he apparently has an inherent ability to naturally know how to land a large passenger jet?
Way to be disrespectful of the people who gave up their lives (literally sacrificed themselves) and actually attacked their attackers (rather than speaking out of their asses with false bravado). These people saved how many lives by their actual bravery, I think Wahlberg's action flicks have gone to his head a bit.

Most Americans would like to think they could have made the outcome different on that day. If he was going to be on that plane but didnt make it, then he must have a lot of regret and sorrow on what happened and what could have been. If that is the case, let the man talk.

Yeah that sounds logically, I would do the same. Maybe the people in those planes fought, who knows???

Whether it would of happened like that no one will ever know. But I think he is just fantisizing about what he would do and in his heart imagines that he would be super protective to the passengers. I don't think it is bad we all like to imagine what we would do. But of course the outcome rarely comes out like we would like it to.

A couple habibs took down the plane using box cutters. It wouldnt have been that hard to take them down. This is why I believe the plane was actually shot down to prevent the plane from crashing into the white house or some other large building. As much as that sucks, it falls under the "kill a few to save many" category.

Nice to see that he's bought into his own PR crap. Get over yourself you over-inflated Hollywood POS.
