The actor won more money than any other Hollywood actor in 2017, but the zeros in your account will not remove the dream and just wants to continue “working hard”
“I don’t know how to determine ‘who won what’, but I do know that I did not open my banking to anyone,” quipped the actor, who this week premieres the film of action Mile 22.
“But, do you know? I’m just grateful for being in a place, which I have worked long and hard to get, where can I get to make the films that I want you to do. So I’m keeping a low profile. There are many projects that I want to do, some of which I want to fund myself. Just keep working hard and I’m not worried about anything of those things”, he added.
Wahlberg (Boston, 1971), with tapes such as “Transformers: The Last Knight” or “Daddy’s Home 2” entered USD 68 million last year to lead the Forbes list of the highest paid actors in 2017heads now the cast of “Mile 22”, a feature film in which he appears accompanied by Lauren Cohan, John Malkovich, Ronda Rousey and Iko Uways.
“Mile 22” focuses on a team of special forces that you need to move a valuable resource from the american embassy of an asian country to an airport, a plan that has dozens of enemies will try to thwart.
Without much space for any distractions and with a tumultuous international scenario as a backdrop, “Mile 22” offers an hour and a half of pure action, almost like a video game in which the hero overcoming phase after phase, and represents the fourth collaboration of Wahlberg with filmmaker Peter Berg after “Lone Survivor” (2013), “Deepwater Horizon” and “Patriots Day” (both of 2016).
“We have a unique bond. We want to, we love working together and we work very well together. Peter is a truly talented, in addition, he was an actor first, so that really creates an environment for the actors that I think that you can be as creative as possible,” said Wahlberg.
“I encourage anyone who is thinking of work somewhere in South america go to Colombia to film”, he added.
Seriously, almost shy, formal and very correct in the short distances, Wahlberg has moved away from its turbulent early years, in those who had problems with drugs and the law, and now sells a public image of perfect father, able to get up at 3 in the morning to go training, and based his life on the ideals catholics.
In this sense, his role of James Silva in “Mile 22” could not be more different to the artist, since a character is impulsive, a little largemouth, and always at top speed.
“But he still had that kind of energy and intensity and kept walking on the thin line of ‘good guy, bad guy’, ‘I don’t give a shit, I do my job’ and ‘I do not answer to anyone’, which I liked a lot. That was very attractive to me,” she said.
Nominated twice for an Oscar and after having worked with filmmakers of the likes of Paul Thomas Anderson (“Boogie Nights”, 1997) or Martin Scorsese (“The Departed”, 2006), Wahlberg also addressed the controversy over “All the Money in the World” (2017) of Ridley Scott.
After dozens of accusations of sexual assault against Kevin Spacey require you to re-record part of the movie with Christopher Plummer as a substitute, it came to light that Wahlberg it had charged $ 1.5 million to shoot these new scenes compared with less than $ 1,000 that he had received his companion of cast Michelle Williams.
The interpreter, who finally he donated the $ 1.5 million to the legal defense fund “Time’s Up”said that the actresses are doing “an amazing job” and that they should be “compensated” in an equitable manner.
“Over a period of time has been unfair and I think it is time that people begin to recognize the value they bring,” he concluded.
