Mark Wahlberg Couldn't Have Prevented 9/11 After All

Mark Wahlberg was scheduled to be on one of the planes that hit the World Center on 9/11, but he changed his flight at the last minute -- his smartest move since putting pants back on.

But if he had been on the flight, he wouldn't have worried anyway.

As you may have heard, Mark just told told Men's Journal:

"If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn't have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, 'OK, we're going to land somewhere safely, don't worry.'"

First of all, shouldn't it be gone down, not went down?

Secondly, does Wahlberg really think he's the action hero in real life that he plays for fake (and for moolah)?

If so, could The Rock and Vin Diesel have averted the other plane tragedies that day?

Could Tom Cruise merely hold up a hand and stop a hurricane?

Nah. They couldn't even cut through rush-hour traffic.

Fortunately, Wahlberg has rethought his claim and apologized in the wake of loud protests.

"To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with," he now says, wisely, "and to suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible."

Cool.

But I do hope Wahlberg sneaks into the next Republican debate and kicks some ass.

He's a yucky homophobe. Blech.

Jackass.  He's proven himself to be just another in a looong chain of idiot actors who thoroughly believe their own publicity and actually believe they ARE one of the "heroes" they play on-screen, e.g., Tom Cruise, who thought he and his fellow cultists could "save" all the first-responders at Ground Zero with their vitamins and  hoo-doo-mumbo-jumbo.  If I were a family member of one of the victims on the doomed flights, I'd be mightily insulted and pissed off at this stupid, vain, deluded douchebag.  NOTE TO WAHLBERG ET AL:  You are paid to memorize and recite lines.  Just stick to that plan.  When you veer from the script, you're clearly way out of your depth.

Here's a great comment from my Facebook page:

"I sat across from Mark Wahlberg on a flight from JFK to LAX last year. He got on-board the plane, took 2 pills with a glass of wine and was out cold until about 30 minutes before landing..He would have been lucky to detain someone like Betty White based upon his mental and physical state on that flight."

He would have definitely eclipsed Berry Berenson as the biggest star to die on 911.

He's never been the sharpest tool in the shed--though he somehow emerged as a big box office star and producer, so I give him credit.
