“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk about politics], Wahlberg told Task & Purpose, a news and analysis outlet geared toward American service veterans.
During a press event for his upcoming thriller Patriots Day, about the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing, Wahlberg was asked about the seemingly endless number of celebrities who bashed President-elect Donald Trump before the election.
“You know, it just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to that anyway,” the actor told the outlet. “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,” says Wahlberg, who has acting credits that date back to the early 90’s and has produced and starred in some of the most successful TV shows and blockbusters of the last to decades.
