We’re all sick and tired of seeing liberal celebrities engaging in politics and trying to sound smart while bashing President Trump in their pathetic speeches. Well, one Hollywood star had something to say about it.
Actor Mark Wahlberg believes his fellow celebrities should stick to entertaining Americans and keep out of politics.
“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk about politics], Wahlberg said, commenting liberal celebrities’ bashing of Trump.
“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway,” the actor explained during a press event for his upcoming thriller Patriots Day that tells the story of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills.”
“A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble,” says Wahlberg, who has acting credits that date back to the early 90’s and has produced and starred in some of the most successful TV shows and blockbusters of the last to decades.
“They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family,” he said. “Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”
Wahlberg is experienced in politically-charge movie roles, having played former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in Lone Survivor (2013), and Mike Williams, an oil rig worker and survivor of the Deepwater Horizon disaster, in Deepwater Horizon (2016).
Wahlberg says Patriots Day – that will premiere January 17 – will remind people how special and great America’s people, police and military members truly are, reports Breitbart.
“I definitely think the film is going to bring people together,” Wahlberg said. “It will give people an added boost and a reminder of what a great country we do have and how amazing people are. People really dedicated their lives to serving our country and our communities, and we need to honor that. The overall purpose of police and military is protect us. It’s an amazing thing, and every chance I get I want to thank them for their service.”
