Religious movie star Mark Wahlberg struggled with the script in director M. Night Shyamalan’s new movie The Happening – because his character was required to blaspheme. Wahlberg has no problems swearing in his often gritty movies, but he tried not to use God’s name in vain.
So, when his latest director asked him to blaspheme, Wahlberg admits he had a real dilemma. He explains, “I had to say ‘G’ ‘D’ in this new movie and that was extremely difficult… He (Shyamalan) asked me if I would say it and I did, and I asked for forgiveness that night when I got home.”
I can sympathize with you, Mark. That’s not something that I would want to do on film or any time off film either.
