The March issue of Vanity Fair has this article about how HGH use and abuse is rampant in Hollywood, mainly with big stars who need to get ripped out. But I digress. The point of this post is these pictures of Mark Wahlberg on the set of ‘Pain and Gain’ in Miami yesterday. In hindsight I don’t know why I even mentioned that thing about the HGH.

Mark Wahlberg plays a bodybuilder in the new movie ‘Pain and Gain’, directed by Michael Bay, and hopefully they mean in drag as a female bodybuilder because he is nowhere even remotely close to looking like a real bodybuilder. In fact in some of these scenes he’s not even doing his own crunches and has a harness lift him up and down.
They could have cast him as ‘Seabiscuit’ and let Tobey Maguire ride on his back for two hours and it still would have been more believable than letting him play a bodybuilder.

In the wake of Mark Wahlberg letting us know that 9/11 wouldn’t have went down like it did if he had been there, some readers on Sherdog created this thread to document all the others times when things wouldn’t have went down like they did. Mark Wahlberg would have saved us all! Or at least his kids and the rest of the first class cabin. He really is one of histories greatest heroes when you think about it (as long as you’re Mark Wahlberg).

Mark Wahlberg really didn’t do himself any favors today when he went on Kid Kraddock in the Morning to explain why he said what he said about stopping 9/11.
“I would never disrespect the victims of 9/11 or their families. It was completely misunderstood. My only intention was to explain the fact that I would do anything to protect my family – I would put myself in harms way to protect my family or innocent people. That was it.”
“First and foremost, I am not an actor. I am a real guy from the streets and I’ve been in a lot of situations.”
No, dipshit, you’re an actor. I know this because I’ve been seeing you in movies since 1995. Of all people, you’d think the guy from who was dancing around with the Funky Bunch would want to stop being thought of as what he was 20 years ago.

Mark Wahlberg, who as you can see is about the same height and build as Jessica Biel, told Mens Journal that he would have single-handedly stopped the terrorists on 9/11, unlike the docile sheep who sat there and did nothing. And then he would have single-handedly landed the plane, because how hard could that really be, all while giving comfort to the other passengers. Al-Qaeda would rue the day that they entered Mark Wahlbergs world (the first class cabin)!
“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.’”
Needless to say this offended the families of some of the victims. So now he’s apologized, but not really.
“To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with. I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention.”
“Not that my answer wasn’t 100% true, but I should have worded it differently,” he probably added. PR crisis = solved!

Pretend movie tough-guy/real-life jackass Mark Wahlberg has an interview in the new issue of Men’s Fitness, and let’s just get right to it:
On being scheduled to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11:
?“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, by extension, according to Mark Wahlberg, all the people who were on those planes but did not prevent them from crashing were pussies. Who didn’t love their kids as much as he does. And the people who fought back on Flight 93 over Pennsylvania were lumbering doofuses and crashed anyway.
Clearly that’s not how Mark Wahlberg, who starred in ‘the Italian Job’, would have done it. He would have defeated the terrorists with his movie punches, then landed the plane, on time, and killed the Arab-looking baggage guys just in case. That sure would have been exciting to see! If it’s not too much trouble maybe Wahlberg could dig up some of the lazy assholes who died that day and act it out for me.
