Mark Wahlberg Interview – Patriot’s Day – “I was the one solely responsible for this in the eyes of Boston”
Actor, producer and all-round movie mogul Mark Wahlberg has all but conquered Hollywood, despite his early beginnings as bad boy rapper, Marky Mark. So makes perfect sense that the next step would be directing – wouldn’t it?
Q: When we last spoke, you said this movie put huge pressure on your shoulders. How do you work past that?
WAHLBERG: … I like to go home all the time, I work there all the time and I like to be welcomed with open arms every time I go back there. I don’t want that to change so that’s why I knew I had to get this right no matter what. And if I didn’t, it wasn’t on the studio, it wasn’t on Pete, it wasn’t on anybody else but me. I was the one solely responsible for this in the eyes of Boston and I was aware of that from the beginning.
