Though he tried to remain mysterious, Mark Wahlberg couldn't help but reveal the name of his worst movie during a recent press conference.
Promoting his new drama "The Fighter," Wahlberg told reporters that he and co-star Amy Adams had previously met to discuss doing a different project together that turned out to be a box-office dud.
"We had actually had the luxury of having lunch before to talk about another movie and it was a bad movie that I did," Wahlberg said, taking care not to reveal the title. "She dodged the bullet. And then I was still able to… I don’t want to tell you what movie… alright 'The Happening.' F- it."
The plot of Shyamalan's 2008 bomb involves nature turning against humans and causing them to take their lives. Wahlberg, best known for playing blue-collar characters, starred as a science teacher in the film.
"It is what it is," said 39-year-old Wahlberg. "F-ing trees, man. The plants. F– it. You can’t blame me for not wanting to try to play a science teacher. At least I wasn’t playing a cop or a crook."
