has never been one to hold back on what he really thinks, so it should come as no surprise to hear that the outspoken star went on a rant during the premiere of his latest movie, Lone Survivor. What is surprising is that he spoke a lot of sense.

During a Q & A that took place after the screening of his military-themed movie, Wahlberg was questioned about the grueling filming and fitness regime and responded by blasting privileged Hollywood stars and their audacity to suggest working as an actor is a tough gig:

For actors to sit there and talk about ‘oh I went to SEAL training’? I don’t give a f-ck what you did. 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-cking dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.

You tell em' Marky Mark!

Could this little slap down be a direct response to , who claimed at a recent deposition that being away from daughter Suri while filming on Oblivion felt like serving in Afghanistan?

I'm with Wahlberg on this one. Being a movie star certainly has its challenges, but it's also a privileged career that brings trappings of wealth and fame. To complain about a couple of weeks hard work is disingenuous to the vast majority of the population who have to work hard, in unforgiving jobs for their whole life.

I also find it quite cool when he drops f-bombs, but that's how I roll.
