Mark Wahlberg, just as many of us, was in a saddened mood after learning of the bombings at the Boston Marathon. The singer turned actor attended the New York premiere of his new film, Pain and Gain and like many of us worked to make heads or tails of the explosions.
Earlier Monday two bombs went off near the finish line at the Boston Marathon. Three people were killed, including an eight-year-old boy and at least 140 were injured.
“I really didn’t even want to come tonight. I hadn’t really heard much – I spoke to my mom, and most of my family seems to be OK,” said Wahlberg, a Boston native. “It’s such a big event, there’s so many people there. It’s horrible man. It’s f***ing disgusting, man. I just – I’m very upset,” Wahlberg added Monday night.
“You try to put everything in God’s hands and whatever happens here is out of our control and there’s a bigger picture. But it’s still obviously upsetting,” the actor added.
Monday’s explosion at the Boston Marathon took many (if not all of us) by shock, including entertainers and singers.
Monday’s marathon had 23,000 runners that took part in the race. Each year the legendary marathon attracts more than 500,000 spectators. The marathon is also held on Patriots Day, a Massachusetts state holiday which commemorates the first battles of the American Revolution in 1775.
