Mark Wahlberg threatened by Taylor Lautner

By Alexandra Heilbron on August 5, 2011 | 6 Comments

At the Hollywood Foreign Press Association Luncheon yesterday afternoon at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the association awarded $1.5 million in grants to groups such as the American Cinematheque, the American Film Institute, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Chapman University, UCLA, the Film Foundation and the Ghetto Film School. Various celebrities came to the stage to present the awards and when Mark Wahlberg, 40, was onstage with Leonardo DiCaprio, 36, he told the crowd: “I’m sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me,” he said, gesturing towards DiCaprio. “So, we’re both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We’re screwed.” The crowd laughed, while Wahlberg added, tongue firmly planted in cheek: “It’s over, dude. Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run and on to the next.” After the luncheon, Lautner told E! Online: “I don’t even know the word to describe being here. It’s so odd. It’s such an honor. I’m up on the stage and talking in front of people like that? The people that I looked up to my entire life? Hearing words like that from Mark, and everybody it’s just really surreal.”

    I noticed he didn’t say Taylor is a better actor. But he’s right, Taylor’s better looking than Leo and is in better shape than Mark (he’s in better shape than just about anyone). Gotta love Mark. Great actor, great looking, great sense of humour.

    Title is deceiving. Whalberg is funny. But yeah at least DiCaprio and Marky Mark are certainly better actors and can still look goon on screen. 40 is the new 30 apparently.

    totally agree about the title I was like say what? Team Mark all the way I’m sorry Taylor who? he is a terrible actor I can’t say Mark started off great but he’s certainly got better and is a top contender now and personally think that he has a nicer body than Taylor hands down but still does not compare to Leo’s acting chops I personally don’t think that Leo is good looking but definitely one of my favorite actors he can pull off anything thats thrown at him every since he was kid
