‘F-cking Trees Man’: Mark Wahlberg Slams Past Film ‘The Happening’

November 22nd, 2010 // Leave a Comment

Mark Wahlberg let it slip while doing promotion for his Oscar-buzzed film The Fighter that he thought The Happening was an awful movie. You and I both!

Wahlberg was asked about his Fighter co-star Amy Adams, when he revealed they almost did another movie together before.

“I was such a huge fan,” he said of the actress. “We’d actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie, and it was a bad movie that I did. She dodged the bullet. I don’t want to tell you what movie.”

But of course, he did.

“All right, The Happening with M. Night Shyamalan. It is was it is. F*cking trees, man, the plants. F*ck it. You can’t blame me for wanting to try to play a science teacher. You know? I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook.”

He’s referring to the “twist” in the story (spoiler alert…although please, are you really going to see it?), that plants are released toxins to kill off their human predators. You can always count on Mark Wahlberg to tell it like it is. So I guess The Fighter must be pretty good, given that Mark held up a sign declaring his love for the film on his way home from a screening on Friday. Oh and say hi to your motha for me!
