Tom Cruise compares Acting to Fighing in Afghanistan

The headline read:

“How F*cking Dare You”, Mark Wahlberg Unloads on Tom Cruise About Veteran Comment

This is one of the biggest lash outs from one actor to another actor in Hollywood. 

TMZ reported that Mark Wahlberg went on a rant and some what directly targeted Tom Cruise and other actors who compare their jobs as entertainers to serving in our nation's military.

Here’s where it all started:

It all happened at an AFI festival last night in L.A., when he was asked about the story regarding Tom Cruise comparing acting to serving in the military in Afghanistan.

Wahlberg simply unloaded 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.”

Mark Wahlberg
“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!”

In his latest film, "Lone Survivor," Mark Wahlberg plays a Navy SEAL.

In 2012 he visited several soldiers in a surprise trip to Afghanistan. But Wahlberg - who plays Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell in his latest flick - doesn't buy what Tom Cruise is selling.

"You get to go home at the end of the day," Mr Wahlberg said, speaking to how actors have it easy compared to what our troops have to do.

"I don't give a shit if you get your ass busted," he said during a Q&A after the flick. "You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order f*cking chicken. Or your steak. Whatever the f**k it is!"

The only similarity, Mr Wahlberg said, was bonding with his fellow actors - Ben Foster, Taylor Kitsch and Emile Hirsch - whom he calls "brothers" in the similar way that servicemen and women are able to bond during their tours.

Mark Wahlberg's response to a statement from actor Tom Cruise - who touched a lot of nerves when it was reported that he believes his job as a professional actor is as grueling as fighting the war in Afghanistan - is not uncharacteristic for Mark Wahlberg who is a huge supporter of our troops at home and overseas.

Millionaire Tom Cruise really is full of shit!

"That’s what it feels like," Cruise reportedly said in a deposition in the custody battle over daughter Suri. "And certainly on this last movie, it was brutal. It was brutal."


Besides Mark Wahlberg, actor John Stamos took Tom Cruise to task saying, "Acting isn't as tough as getting mani-pedi."

It is said that Tom Cruise has a short man's attitude of thinking he's more important than he really is - this sort of statement speaks to just how full of shit Tom Cruise really is.

Tom Cruise comparing his time away from daughter Suri on movie sets to a soldier's tour in Afghanistan, "That's what it feels like. ... Certainly on this last movie, it was brutal" might fly in Hollywood with those who bow down to actors like Cruise.

Mark Wahlberg and John Stamos show that it doesn't fly with them, they have the class to salute those in harm's way and support their mission.

While our troops need all of our support, they'd probably be the first to say that they can do just fine without the support of someone as classless as Tom Cruise.


Tom Cruise agreed that being away from his daughter on movie sets 'feels like' serving in Afghanistan.
