Depending on which report you read, Tom Cruise may or may not have compared filming to being a soldier fighting in Afghanistan, which in turn, made a bunch of people who have neither acted nor fought in Afghanistan to become angry. Like Mark Wahlberg. TMZ reports:
Mark Wahlberg lashed out at Tom Cruise — somewhere between directly and indirectly — last night, saying "For actors to sit there and talk about 'oh I went to SEAL training? I don't give a f**k what you did." Wahlberg was speaking at the AFI Festival in L.A., when he was asked about the story TMZ broke about Tom Cruise saying in a deposition that his job was like fighting in Afghanistan. Wahlberg unloaded, saying "For somebody to sit there and say 'my job was as difficult as being in the military.' How f**king dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for 2 hours." Wahlberg didn't stop there. He said, "I don't give a s**t if you get your ass busted. You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order your f**king chicken."
Cool story, Mark. But before you fist bump your Marky Mark poster, please keep in mind that this is the same Mark Wahlberg who said if he had been on any one of the planes during 9/11 that he would killed the terrorists with raging American freedom boner because he had pratice beating people up when he used to put little black kids in the hospital in Boston. Also, he's like 5'6". Anyway, let's just make believe that he's not trying to get military personnel to go see his new movie (where, coincidentally, he's playing a SEAL!), and saying something that most people know doesn't really need to be said. And if you're reading this out there, thanks for serving.
