It looks like Mark Wahlberg has spent a little too much time talking tough on movie sets. In an interview with Men’s Journal, the actor claims that if he was onboard a hijacked plane on Sept. 11, things would have ended differently.
(Before we get started, some fun facts about Mark Wahlberg: He’s 5-8 and doesn’t have a pilot’s license.)
“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did,” says the actor, who had purchased a ticket for one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center but changed his travel plans.
“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.’”
Oh, Mark. In the real world, saying heroic things in a Southie Boston accent doesn’t magically kill the bad guys.
