Mark Wahlberg has criticized Hollywood and celebrities who he thinks should stay out of politics.
The Boogie Nights actor told Task & Purpose magazine that Hollywood is out of touch with reality and that people in the industry should keep their opinions to themselves:
“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk politics]. 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. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family.”
Wahlberg says he has separated himself from the average Hollywood lifestyle:
“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.”
