You know him from such films as Daddy’s Home and Daddy’s Home 2.
Hollywood bad boy Mark Wahlberg has starred in a lot of movies, with a storied career that spans over two decades. But do you know what all of his roles have in common? I’ll tell you: They’re all bad boys.
Have you ever stopped to wonder why he only plays bad boys?
Well, friends, I have a theory…
Come closer and I’ll tell you.
Come on, don’t be afraid. Come a little closer.
Just a bit more…
That’s perfect! So, what I have to tell you is…
Hollywood bad boy Mark Wahlberg doesn’t know how to smile.
Oh you don’t believe me? Well, the proof is in the pictures.
Here he is making his best attempt at a smile. What’s he doing with his mouth? I couldn’t tell you. What I can tell you is that it’s not a smile.
Here’s another one.
Here’s a pretty sad attempt.
Anddd here’s another — COMMIT, MARK. COMMIT TO THE SMILE.
It’s the face ventriloquists make when they want it to look like their puppets are speaking.
It’s as if he’s trying to act natural at the very same moment that he’s whispers to Heather Graham, “act natural.”
And here we have another brand of Wahlberg smile. It can best be described as the face you might make while staring directly into the sun.
Here’s the staring-into-the-sun look with sunglasses on.
And here’s the staring-into-the-sun look with Christian Bale.
Mark, buddy, what is going on?
Here he is looking confused. Wouldn’t YOU be confused if you didn’t know how to smile?
And here’s Mark’s natural state.
Mark, if you’re out there, if you’re reading this, we’re pulling for you. One of these days, you’re gonna figure it out.
