A source close to Mark tells RumorFix, “He was not referring to Tom Cruise. Mark made a nearly identical statement two weeks ago.”
During a Q&A session for the movie Lone Survivor, Mark said, “For actors to sit there and talk about ‘oh I went to SEAL training? I don’t give a f**k what you did.”
He added, “For somebody to sit there and say ‘my job was as difficult as being in the military.’ How f**king dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours.” I don’t give a s**t if you get your a** busted. You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order your f**king chicken.”
Gossip blogs speculated that Mark was talking about Tom, because the Oblivion actor recently compared being on the set of a movie to being in the military in a deposition.
But our source says, “Mark has the utmost respect for Tom and was responding to a question about preparation for the role. He didn’t even know about the Tom Cruise connection until this morning.”
