Actor Mark Wahlberg criticized his peers in an interview on Tuesday, saying that Hollywood is out of touch with reality and that people in the industry should keep their opinions to themselves.

“A lot of celebrities did, do, and shouldn’t [talk politics],” he told Task & Purposemagazine. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills. A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble. They’re pretty out of touch with the common person, the everyday guy out there providing for their family.”

Wahlberg said that he has spent most of his life around the common person. 

“Me, I’m very aware of the real world. I come from the real world and I exist in the real world,” he said. “And although I can navigate Hollywood and I love the business and the opportunities it’s afforded me, I also understand what it’s like not to have all that.”
