Mark Wahlberg: Did He Take a Swipe at Tom Cruise?

Mark Wahlberg has never been afraid to state his opinion. At the AFI premiere of his movie Lone Survivor, Wahlberg launched into passionate remarks when asked about his training regimen for the film in which he plays a Navy Seal.

"For actors to sit there and talk about, 'Oh I went to SEAL training'? I don’t give a f–– what you did," Wahlberg said Tuesday. "You don’t do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f––ing dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours."

Media outlets began speculating whether he was lashing out at Tom Cruise, who was asked during his deposition for his libel suit against Bauer Publishing if he was aware his lawyers had likened his absences from his family for movie-making to those in the military serving overseas.

Mark Wahlberg says his family won't be the new Kardashians.

Wahlberg will appear in a new unscripted A&E series about family-owned restaurant Wahlburgers alongside his mother and brothers Donnie and Paul. But the actor and producer shoots down any comparison to that other famous set of reality TV siblings.

"No, no. It's very different. It's very different. Nothing against them. They've been hugely successful," he said in an interview Tuesday before the premiere of his war film Lone Survivor. ''It's just about building a family business. Uh, it's just very different, very different."

"I think she may insult some people, but she is very, very funny," Wahlberg, 41, tells PEOPLE at Thursday night's Miami premiere of his movie Pain & Gain, presented by Grey Goose.

The actor certainly seems poised for a Wilson barb. He's nominated for best duo for being paired with a computer-animated bear voiced (profanely) by Seth MacFarlane in Ted. Wahlberg's up against a pal, Will Ferrell, nominated with Zach Galifianakis for The Campaign.
