Hollywood star Mark Wahlberg states that it is not right for celebrities to openly voice their views about politics, particularly when they do not have that in-depth knowledge about the subject.
In context of Presidential Election held in the US, many celebrities had come forward in openly criticising the newly elected US President. Mark Wahlberg thinks this is nothing more than a childish act. The actor believes that the actors should rather focus on what they do best, acting.
"A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn't. You know, it just goes to show you that people aren't listening to that anyway. They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don't put food on their table. You don't pay their bills. A lot of Hollywood lives in a bubble." Wahlberg said.
The 45-year-old star also states that celebrities have the least idea what a common man has to go through everyday in their lives.
"They're pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family." The actor said.
However, Wahlberg sees himself as a commoner, who understands the hardship of the real world.
"Me, I'm very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world. And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it's afforded me, I also understand what it's like not to have all that." The actor added further.
