Mark Wahlberg Is Great At Negotiating
Mark Wahlberg Is Great At Negotiating


As you might know, after it was found out that Kevin Spacey tried to bang a 14-year-old, Ridley Scott replaced him with Christopher Plummer in All The Money In The World and they had to do reshoots. Since they had to do reshoots, Mark Wahlberg and Michelle Williams had to come back. Then this happened.

Mark Wahlberg was paid $1.5 million for reshooting his scenes in All the Money in the World, three people familiar with the situation but not authorized to speak publicly about it tell USA TODAY, while Michelle Williams was paid an $80 per diem totaling less than $1,000.  That works out to Williams being paid less than 1% of her male co-star.

My god. This is just ANOTHER example of the gender wage gap in Hollywood where women are systematically oppressed by a patriarchal society. THIS IS AN EGREGIOUS GENDER PAY GAP oh wait:

“USA TODAY has since learned Wahlberg’s team actually negotiated a hefty fee, with the actor paid $1.5 million for his reshoots. Williams wasn’t told.”

This line was taken out of the original article this morning, because well, of course. Taking it out makes for better outrage. It appears Michelle Williams needs a new team. Or not, because in business, it’s widely know that if you negotiate a rate for yourself, you’re negotiating for all your co-workers as well. That’s just how business works. When you get a raise or bonus because you demanded it, then everybody gets a raise or bonus because that’s the fair thing to do. It happens all the time. Not sure why this doesn’t happen in Hollywood, which is also a business.  There’s also, you know, this (per USA Today):

I adore (Scott), worship him, would do anything for him,” Williams says. “I hated that this man’s time and expertise and gentlemanly-ness was going to be kind of for naught. So when I got the phone call about the change of plans I was thrilled. I was enlivened, it picked me up off the couch a little bit and got me excited.” She continued: “I said I’d be wherever they needed me, whenever they needed me. And they could have my salary, they could have my holiday, whatever they wanted. Because I appreciated so much that they were making this massive effort.”

So basically, Mark Wahlberg thought his time was worth $1.5M and Michelle Williams thought her time wasn’t because she worships Ridley Scott. Good to know. I’m sure Scott will love to work with her again. But if I had any advice for Michelle Williams it would be that now the time has come for you to get up. The rest had you fed up but yo I won’t let up. On the rhythm and rhyme thats designed to make your behind move to what I’m inclined to pure hip hop no sell out. If you ain’t in it to win it then get the hell out.

“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, ‘Okay, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.'”Mark Wahlberg, 2012

Mark Wahlberg Still Wants The Dudes He Almost Killed To Pardon Him

In 1986, Mark Wahlberg, then 15, and his friends attacked 12-year, Jesse Coleman (who is black) while he was minding his own business walking down the street. They chased him, threw rocks at his head, and screamed racial epithets while injuring two of Coleman’s classmates. The next day, they did the same thing to Jesse, screaming “Kill the nigger!” before an ambulance driver came to Coleman’s aid. One of the classmates, Kristyn Atwood, still has a scar from attack. Wahlberg’s punishment? A civil rights injunction. Meaning, he walked in court and they said, “lol we can’t beat up on niggers anymore, white boy. be on your way lol”. Two years later, Wahlberg attacked two Vietnamese immigrants, Thanh Lam and Hoa Trinh, while he was trying to steal beer. Graduated from rocks, Wahlberg beat Thanh Lam unconscious with a stick, leaving him permanently blind in one eye, while screaming “gook” and “Vietnam fucking shit”. His punishment? 45 days in jail. In 1992, Wahlberg fractured his neighbor’s jaw, because the dude just happened to be standing there. Later, Wahlberg co-opted black culture to make millions as a rapper. He wants to be pardoned now, because he’s a famous movie star. His victims want him to go fuck himself.

“I don’t think he should get a pardon,” Kristyn Atwood tells the Associated Press. Atwood, now 38, was one of a group of mostly black 4th grade students on a class trip whom Wahlberg and his white friends threw rocks and shouted racial slurs at during an incident in 1986. “I don’t really care who he is,” Atwood says. “It doesn’t make him any exception. If you’re a racist, you’re always going to be a racist. And for him to want to erase it, I just think it’s wrong.”

So when Wahlberg said he would have prevented 9/11 if he would have been on the plane, it wasn’t because he is some warped version of an American hero that we’re all deluded in believeing, it’s because he just likes beating the shit out of brown people. And 9/11 would have given him an excuse to kill some. Hey, that’s basically the plot of American Sniper. Wahlberg should have just enlisted instead and avoided all this headache.

Here’s The Trailer For ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’


Hopefully the title means this will be the last of this fuckery, because every filmmaker should consider Michael Bay a personal affront to their art. But, we live in America, so his movies make a shit ton of money because EXPLOSIONS! GUNS! ROBOTS! HOT CHICKS! SNAPPY COMEBACK! PLOT? NOT SO MUCH. So yeah, here it is. The first official trailer for Transfomers: Age of Extinction. And if it couldn't get any worse, this one stars Mark Wahlberg. The same Mark Wahlberg who couldn't play Mark Wahlberg in a movie. Mark Wahlberg the huge action star. The same Mark Wahlberg who I stood behind in line at movie theater concession counter in LA once, and I could see the line wasn't that long because I could stare over his head. Do you even not ever wear lifts, bro? I wanna see sweat comin' out ya pores. As you attempt to reach something on the top shelf.

Mark Wahlberg Is Pissed At Tom Cruise
Mark Wahlberg Is Pissed At Tom Cruise


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.

Mark Wahlberg Is In Transformers 4

Despite shooting down an Internet rumor last week that Mark Wahlberg would star in Transformers 4, Michael Bay confirmed yesterday that Mark Wahlberg will star in Transformers 4. No word yet if he had to wash Bay's Ferrari in a bikini. E! Online news reports:

It looks like Mark Wahlberg made quite the impression on Michael Bay while working together on Pain and Gain, because the director has now announced that he's cast the actor in Transformers 4. "Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on Pain and Gain and I'm so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the Transformers' legacy," Bay said.

So the worst actor of our generation to star in a movie made by the worst filmmaker of our generation. Awesome. Can't wait until it's #1 at the box office cuz 'Merica.

“There’s criminal activity going on down the street? Not after I get an all-over face application and blending for a sheer, flawless finish I can guarantee you that.

Here’s more pictures of Mark Wahlberg on the set of Michael Bay’s Pain And Gain, causing the Miami weather center to issue a severe douche warning as Wahlberg and Bay have created a mesocyclone of douche which may cause a douche supercell the likes of which Miami has never seen (except maybe in South Beach).

Rest Easy, People Of Miami

“You see that plane? It doesn’t have any terrorists on it I can tell you that much.”

I bet hurricanes and Miami police officers feel pretty stupid right now with nothing do since Mark Wahlberg is there filming Michael Bay’s Pain and Gain. Hurricanes can just go back to Africa and the police can just go grab some donuts or whatever, because nothing goes down on Mark Wahlberg’s watch. Mostly nothing goes down after the fact in his delusional fantasy where he’s the hero. Criminals better not forget the legendary tale of the 5’5″ wigger douche who cleaned the streets of Boston by throwing rocks at black children on a field trip and beating middle-aged Vietnamese men with sticks until they were permanently blind. To be honest, I’m actually scared right now.

Mark Wahlberg Is A Fucking Moron

[SinglePic not found]

“I was a white rapper and I played a boxer one time. Shit woulda got real, son. See how I hold this Sharpie like a weapon?”

In an interview in the February 2012 issue of Men’s Jounal, Mark Wahlberg says he would have prevented 9/11 by simply being on the plane. Yes. You read that right.

“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.’”

Everyone just let that sink in for a moment while I tell you about the time I saw Mark Wahlberg at ArcLight. He’s like 5’10” in stilts. The only blood that would have been in that first-class cabin would have been from his aorta and his tears. Because I’m sure his terrorist survivor skills he learned getting a pedicure in the makeup trailer and complaining that there’s no soy milk at the craft services table would have made Islamic extremists on a suicide pact think twice before they crossed the guy from the underwear ads. Oh, no. Not him. Fuck that shit. I mean, I love Allah and errrything but you didn’t tell us that wigger from MTV’s Beach House was gonna be here.

Yo, it’s about that time. To bring forth the rhythm and the backpedaling apology (via TMZ):

“To suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible.” But Mark admits he crossed the line — telling us, “To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with.” Mark adds, “I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive, it was certainly not my intention.”
