Actor Mark Wahlberg is so jealous of One Direction that he wants to punch Harry Styles in the nose, or so he told late night host Conan O’Brian on Conan Thursday night.
Apparently, the former teen idol and father of four has been feeling the burn lately as his two daughters have become more interested in the British boy band than their father’s action star career.
Marky Mark (as he was known then) told Conan that his two daughters were initially excited for him to star in the upcoming Transformers sequel to the point that they asked if they could be in the movie.
“But now the girls have turned to One Direction to the point that they don’t care about dad anymore,” he said the red headed host. “My four-year-old is like, ‘Dad, I like Harry!’ And I’m like, ‘Well, I’m going to punch Harry in the nose when I see him.’”
“She pulls out pictures of him and she’s hiding pictures in the room, and I pretend to rip them up and get jealous. But if I see that little prick, he’s going to get it.”
He then goes on to reveal how he would lure the band to be in the same room as him, a plan which may or may not involve getting Harry and the boys to write a song for Transformers.
All jokes aside, Marky Mark would be open to setting up a meeting with One Direction and his girls as it would “the only time I’ll ever introduce them into a boy. After that, it’s Rapunzel time.”
If it’s any consolation, Marky Mark, Harry, Liam, Niall, Louis and Zayn are all great gents. The cast of Anchorman 2 seemed to have loved them.
