Mark Wahlberg

I Love Tom Cruise

But He Needs to Shut Up

11/14/2013 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Mark Wahlberg says he wasn't specifically targeting Tom Cruise when he railed on actors who compare their jobs to soldiers at war -- but he STILL thinks Tom needs to shut the hell up.

Wahlberg -- who was tooling around L.A. Wednesday -- said he wasn't aware Tom was the one who made the actor-soldier comparison when he blasted actors who dared feel that way at the AFI Fest Tuesday night.  Wahlberg says he's a huge Cruise fan and meant no disrespect.

But Wahlberg made it clear -- any comparison is B.S.

Talk about being caught between a rock and a hard place. Check the video.

Get this ... on the red carpet at the AFI Fest ... Mark clearly knew about Tom's depo, saying "An actor recently just said his job was almost as important or as difficult as someone in the military ... Not Cool."

Wahlberg needs to shut up too. He's a criminal who routinely beat up people smaller than he in order to steal from them. He left a man paralyzed for life. He claimed that if he had been on one of the highjacked planes on 9/11 that he would have prevented it from crashing. He's as big a moron as Tom, he's just in the cult of personal arrogance instead of the cult of scientology.

Mark followed up his comment to Tom with.... Say hi to your mom for me.

It appears Tom Cruise and Mark Wahlberg are both a chip off the old douchebag.

Really    

Pot Calling the kettle black, GEEZ, didn't he say in January of 2012 this about 911

"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.'"

and the big mouth back tracks as I knew he would. He was trying to drum up press for his movie and behind the scenes somebody said Oh really Walberg you're slamming Tom Cruise...to appease your knuckle dragging followers. Not very intelligent.

After all the bad sh-t that Marky Mark has done in his life, he should really just crawl away quietly and go hide in a box somewhere, and not be calling people out for things they didn't actually say. For anyone saying that he's turned his life around, just think if it had been you, or one of your family or friends that he'd beaten senseless or instigated unprovoked attacks on, how would you feel about it then? I guess it's alright as long as the sh-t that happens, happens to other people.

Mark Wahlberg are you kidding? When Mark said if he were on the plane on 9/11, he would have whooped the terrorists he received this exact backlash. Seems hypocritical for him to now lead a crusade against Cruise for loose lips!

This guy and those idiots who believe Tom was actually comparing the two are f**king stupid.

Of course he wasn't comparing the two. That was obvious in the following comments during the Depo - portion that is NOT emphasized.

This Whalberg f**k doesn't even know what the f**k he is talking about. He is criticizing someone who was never really comparing the two.

Read the full story and even these lame f**ks from TMZ acknowledge that Tom blew off the assertion that he was comparing the two.

Get f**king real.

I'm not defending Tom either. I think his religion is f**king fanatical! Crazy bat****.

He said "AN ACTOR" not Tom Cruise. Terrence Howard agreed with Tom Cruise maybe he was thinking about him since they worked together before. But he is saying for Tom Cruise to STFU....

I'm not usually a Tom Cruise defender but in this case I really do think tmz has got it wrong about him. I'd never have interpreted Tom's words to mean be really believes acting to be as hard or as serious a job as being a soldier who risks their life in Afghanistan. He said "come on it's just a movie, man" and the "brutal" business just sounds like a lame joke. He does sound arrogant though, and he's in his 50's, he really should know how to play the media game better than this by now.

OK    

Marky Mark and Tom are both nuts. Marky Mark said if he were on United Flight 93 he would have saved it. LMAO! They both have no military training and are just Hollywood blow hards.

How soon we forget Mark Wahlberg your error the beginning of the year when you said if you were there during the terrorist attack of 9/11/01, you would have fought back. And how you had to eat your words later. Don't throw stones. Tom Cruise after 9/11/01 and going forward, open clinics for ALL who inhale the toxic dust and needed health help. Where was Mark. Tom's court statement was taken out of context Mark. He was saying sometimes it FEELS like deployment being away from your loved ones because you must to away to do your job. That's all. And you call yourself a Christian Mark? Note every other word out of your mouth was laced with curses. All I heard was bleet, bleet bleet as you spoke.
