Wahlberg hates Beckham for moving to HollywoodJanuary 4th, 2010 - 1:26 am ICT by IANS
London, Jan 3 (IANS) Hollywood actor Mark Wahlberg has revealed he hates soccer and dislikes David Beckham for moving to Hollywood.
“The Departed” star lives on the same road as the English soccer ace, and said the neighbourhood has been disrupted since he moved to Los Angeles with his family, wife Victoria and three boys - Brooklyn, 10, Romeo, seven and Cruz, four - in 2007, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
“Man, the Beckhams. It used to be so quiet on my road. Then David moves in with his family. Suddenly we’ve got paparazzi hanging out day and night. Now they’ll follow any car that drives down the road. I take strong exception to that kind of thing. When I take my kids to the park I don’t want strangers sticking their lenses into our faces,” he said.
He added that he doesn’t see the point in playing soccer and thinks it will never catch on and become a popular sport in the US.
“I’m not telling Beckham to take his family home. I’m just not sure why he came to America in the first place. Man, we don’t want your soccer. There’s no way Americans are going to buy the idea of 90 minutes of running around without much happening. Thanks for trying guys, but we’ll stick to baseball and basketball,” he said.
