"He's literally made me afraid of everything. I can't enjoy my life the way I used to," the New York Daily News quoted Wahlberg, as saying. However, the good-humoured Shyamalan insisted that he's not as intense as his actors make him out to be.
"It's a bad rap. I'm a good guy!" said Shyamalan. The Sixth Sense director said he specifically wrote the role for Wahlberg in his latest spooky thriller. However, Wahlberg disagreed by saying: "The only reason I got the role is because Will Smith wasn't available."
