Mark Wahlberg: Disturbed by David Beckham


Have you ever been completely annoyed by one of your neighbors? Take that feeling, multiple it by forty and then you’ll know how Mark Wahlberg feels!

Some neighbors are just total pains in the butts. They make too much noise, they party too hard, they sneak their garbage into your trash can. But according to Mark Wahlberg, David Beckham and his brood take the cake for infuriating behavior.

“Man, the Beckhams. It used to be so quiet on my road. Then David moves in with his family. Suddenly we’ve got paparazzi hanging out day and night,” The Lovely Bones star, 38, sighed to the U.K.’s Daily Mail. “Now they’ll follow any car that drives down the road. I take strong exception to that kind of thing. When I take my kids to the park I don’t want strangers sticking their lenses in our faces.”

And although Mark isn’t happy with the publicity David, 34, and his posh wife Victoria , 35, have brought to his sleepy Beverly Hills hood, he isn’t demanding the Brits be sent back across the pond….yet.

“I’m not telling Beckham to tell his family home,” he says before adding, “I’m just not sure why he cam to America in the first place.”


“Man, we don’t want you soccer,” he rants. “There’s no way Americans are going to buy the idea of 90 minutes of running around without much happening. Thanks for trying guys, but we’ll stick to baseball and basketball.”

OK, OK, so we know that Mark is a hometown Boston boy who loves his Boston Red Sox and Celtics, but that’s still no reason to be a hater! Hate the player, Mark, but don’t hate the game!

Do you blame Becks for being a bad neighbor when the situation is beyond his control or do you think Mark is justified in being PO’d?
