Mark Wahlberg On Playing Heroes: ‘They Make Me Want To Be A Better Person’ (VIDEO)

Mark Wahlberg is one of the good guys in Hollywood.

In recent movies, he’s played heroes.

Wahlberg played Marcus Luttrell (Lone Survivor), Mike Williams (Deepwater Horizon), and now a Boston policeman in Patriots Day.

During a recent interview, Wahlberg was asked how playing these heroes has changed him.

Watch his response:

From the video:

Mark Wahlberg: “Especially if you look at Marcus [Luttrell of Lone Survivor fame] – I just talked to Marcus the other day – we talk quite often. Mike [Williams of Deepwater Horizon] – God, the amount of love he has for his wife and his daughter . . . They make me want to be a better person. A better father, husband.”

Good for him!

Wahlberg also recently said that celebrities should shut up about politics. Celebrities don’t understand real life, and “a lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble.”

He’s right!
