'I did say somebody was going to get slapped, but I figure it's Sunday, I went to church,' the 'Max Payne' lead actor says of the rude male who shouted something vulgar to his co-presenter.
Mark Wahlberg has spoken about the incident on the stage of MTV Movie Awards, during which his co-presenter Mila Kunis got heckled by a male audience. The Micky Ward of "The Fighter" was upset at the audience member, but decided to let it slide this time.
"When I came onstage, some random heckler in the crowd said something vulgar to Mila," the actor said backstage. "So that's why I got a little upset. I did say somebody was going to get slapped, but I figure it's Sunday, I went to church, I'm feeling forgiving right now."
Wahlberg and Kunis were on hand to present Best On-Screen Dirtbag when she was rudely interrupted. "Throughout history, dirtbags have succeeded at rising to the top of their industry," she said before the incident. What the man said was barely audible, but she was clearly annoyed and shot back, "Really?"
Being a gentleman as he was, Wahlberg came to her defense and said, "Excuse me," before asking his "Ted" co-star, "What'd he say?" The "Friends with Benefits" actress kept it cool and tried to hold off the big-muscled actor by shrugging it off, "Doesn't matter, go ahead."
Wahlberg glared at the heckler, fired off a bleeped out obscenity of his own, and said, "And here I thought I was gonna have to slap Russell [Brand]." Kunis herself was apparently still annoyed as she gave a pointed look at the male when she said "dirtbag" to announce the nominees.
Jennifer Aniston won the Best On-Screen Dirtbag, thanks to her role in "Horrible Bosses". She beat Bryce Dallas Howard ("The Help"), Jon Hamm ("Bridesmaids"), Oliver Cooper ("Project X"), and her "Horrible Bosses" co-star Colin Farrell.
