Mark Wahlberg says send Beckhams home, but UK doesn’t want ’em either

Actor Mark Wahlberg, 37, is expecting his third child with his fiancé, model Rhea Durham. He calls Durham his “future wife,” and says their two children, Ella, 4, and Michael, 2, are “darlings… for the most part.” Wahlberg has a foundation for inner city at-risk youth, and he says his “biggest fear” is failing the people that depend on him. “My fear is failing as a father, as a friend, as a son. I have a lot of responsibility and a lot of people counting on me. And I know God has put me in this position to put back and try to create some opportunities for some others, show kids there is another way.” Now, he claims, he feels “like I have a real purpose.”

Wahlberg is also quoted by a questionable source as saying that his neighbors, the Beckhams, make his life difficult with all the paparazzi that are constantly trailing them and spilling over onto his property. He supposedly said they should go back to Britain, but that they don’t want them there, either:

He told the Daily Star: “That f***er lives down the road from me, man! He has to go back to the UK, because he has the paparazzi all over my house. The two of them have paparazzi everywhere.”

He added: “I was in the UK for the last week and they don’t want him back there. They said, ‘Keep him over there!'”

It’s possible this quote is completely fabricated, or he may have said it jokingly to a paparazzo in the neighborhood and it got repeated out of context. You can see Mark getting pissed off like this at his family’s privacy being invaded because of the more high-profile Beckhams down the street. It doesn’t seem likely that he’d say this on the record, though.

Mark Wahlberg is starring in M. Night Shyamalan’s thriller The Happening with Zoe Deschanel. It is out in the US on Friday, and he is shown at the premiere last night, thanks to WENN.

    Beckhams are Scientology-wannabes, so expect it to get worse, Mark. I liked him in The Big Hit.

  4. Cassie says:

    I can’t imagine living down the street from the Beckhams must be enjoyable but the paparazzi attention is not likely to stop anytime soon. I’d advise Mark to start house-hunting, except the housing market is so shitty right now.

    They can’t go back to the UK because Victoria is actually an alien so Scottie best beam her up somewhere. David should quit trying to be every celebrities best friend and concentrate on his staying power in a premiere soccer league.

    “Mark is one tasty piece of meat!
    Love him! ”

    Hmm…whats this story about, invasion of privacy, not respecting someone as a human with their own problems and stresses in life, viewing them as an “object” or even in this case, sex toy…

    …tasty piece of meat… hmm…yeah why are you commenting something completly irrelevant? and making yourself look stupid in the process, of being basically an animal with urges! Is that what you all really are?

    Me personally… I’m an intelligent guy, BUT, I’m ALSO a goodlooking guy… and I’m sure people will say, no you don’t… erm I’m sorry… we met when?
    Oh wait, your illogical and uneducated and personal experiences with opinions doesn’t matter to me… I look hella ALOT like a young Mark.. why am I bringing this up?

    Well because me personally am sick and tired of all the hands, the staring the gawping, the whistling, the treating me like a “piece of meat”… no consideration is taken into the fact, that I am human, that I have feelings, emotions and my own thoughts and problems!

    I feel somewhat that Mark must be going through…so how about all you whom
    “I need to express myself based on the ideals of something so arificial as looks”…

    STFU &

    P.S The Beckams suck, but still they are people, alot of other people would of given up a while ago and never “achieve” what they have, so guys…

    Grow up and live your own life for once!

    K thnx bye
