Marky Mark Creeped out by the Gay Thing

His prosthetic penis wearing, blow job hustling in the parking lot Dirk Diggler days faded to the back of Marky Mark’s mind as he talked to the WENN recently.

MARK WAHLBERG is glad filmmaker ANG LEE passed over him when he cast BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, because the Oscar nominee was “a little creeped out” at the prospect of having to play a gay cowboy.

Poor Marky Mark Creeped out by Gay Thing. Happy to have lost Best Supporting Actor for Super not gay Role (The Departed) rather than lost Best Actor for Super Gay Role (Brokeback Mountain) to Another Guy who won for Mega Booyaa Gay Role (Capote)

From his early days as Calvin Klein ad meat: Marky Mark has made it clear that the gay thing was off limits … unless of course he got paid, got attention … or got a leg up towards a supporting flack role in an Oceans Any Number movie. Please.

The DEPARTED star reveals he and pal JOAQUIN PHOENIX were originally considered for the roles of ENNIS DEL MAR and JACK TWIST in the 2005 film – but both felt uncomfortable about sex act scenes in a tent.

Wahlberg explains, “I met with Ang Lee on that movie, I read 15 pages of the script and got a little creeped out. It was very graphic, descriptive – the spitting on the hand, getting ready to do the thing.

As we mentioned above, in the CK ad context – hands on his crotch was pretty much Marky Marks ticket out of Vanilla Ice land. marky32big.jpg

Still there’s nothing like an Oscar nomination to bring on that NKoTB flavored Alzheimers. The Departed was a showboaty, sub-standard Scorcese re-tread–but it did have lots of chest beating and fake Boston Irishness. That re-assures a certain beer swilling demographic that their manhood is viable … as they watch bloated actors be men with guns. Not however gay cowboys with guns … and of course saliva.

“I told Ang Lee, ‘I like you, you’re a talented guy, if you want to talk about it more…’ Thankfully, he didn’t.”

Which some sources believe is an exact repeat of how he turned down Calvin K’s request for a date back in the day … Maybe the two of them can still catch it on DVD at home one night over a nice sour grapes Shiraz. MMW aint seen it yet:

“I didn’t rush to see Brokeback, it’s just not my deal… Obviously, it was done in taste – look how it was received.”

    espcially when he goes all Flashdance and shows off his shoulder

  2. Mr. T says:

    I don’t think this qualifies as gay bashing. Anytime, anything is mentioned about gays, the gays go nuts.

  3. FF says:

    Well he’s been to prison. Might sway things.

  4. neelyo says:

    Mr.T, who said anything about gay bashing? Although now that you mention it, Mr. Wahlberg has an arrest in his past for beating up a man and calling him a ‘faggot’, and another one for helping beat up an Asian man who lost an eye. But I suppose if I mention that, I’ll be screaming ‘Asian bashing’, wouldn’t I?

  5. Cupcake says:

    Oh pleeeease, every single blog I’ve been to today is bitching and moaning about how Mark Wahlberg didn’t want to do a gay movie… Did I miss something? Did we become the United Sates of Gay? When did it become mandatory to want to portray a gay man on film? Personally, I think he’s a breath of fresh air in what’s been feeling like a world of effeminate male actors lately.

    Seriously, a man didn’t want to do a gay love scene, get the hell over it.

  6. kikistar says:

    Neelyo- That’s interesting…Didn’t know that. It might explain things indeed…

    Anyway it’s better he wasn’t in this beautiful movie, HE CAN’T ACT.

  7. UrbanDK says:

    I love it when the gays go nuts … especially when thye start at Mr. T’s and work their way up. He makes such funny faces

  8. Mr. T says:

    UrbanDK, I’m sure someone must understand what the heck you’re talking about. I’m not gay enough I guess. Smile, Jesus loves you and don’t bend over in the shower.

  9. Anonymous says:

    Omigod JesusRodriguez was bending over in the shower the just other day … I didnt even know you knew the Rodriguez family … Mr. T you are too sly with your gay nuts and chillin in Jesus shower … dont’ you pay attentions what everyone says about you … it’s probably genetic

  10. Jeane says:

    Pff I don’t see what’s wrong with a man not wanting to do a gay sex scene. Most men are like that anyway.

    I really respect Heath Ledger and Jack Gylehatever for having the guts to do it but to be honest, I haven’t seen the movie because I think they are both hot hot hot and to see them making out would be gross.

  11. woodhorse says:

    He is so fine, wish he were a little older…. in my dreams.

  12. frewtloop says:

    Can’t see anything there to get worked up about. The whole gay thing doesn’t do it for me either. I’m not anti – just not interested.

  13. Kiwi says:

    Why bring that up now? Isn’t it a couple of years ago?

  14. suki says:

    He didn’t have to say he was “creeped out”. What an asshole.

  15. rose no thorns says:

    So he can’t say what his real feelings were? Since when did not being comfortable with something gay, (if it involves you) automatically make you a homophobe? Now I don’t know if he is anti-gay or not but I am tired of persons overreacting to celeb comments.

  16. MissMara says:

    Why is it that I feel a bit sick whenever I read about Marky Mark and his Funky Crotch? Not hot at all, more like a child caught in a man’s body…

  17. Anastasia says:

    I say this as a straight woman: Brokeback Mountain was fucking HOT.

  18. topaz says:

    I second that statement “Anastasia”! And I’m also I straight woman. Brokeback Mountain was a Great movie. A love story… AND, they both looked HOT.
