Mark Wahlberg Calls Justin Bieber A 'Little B**tard*
Actor offers teenage pop megastar some frank words of advice...
The star of The Fighter didn't pull his punches when he got onto the subject of Biebs' recent troubles during a webchat with The Sun.
He said: "Justin, are you listening? Don't be so naughty, yeah?
"Be a nice boy, pull your trousers up, make your mum proud and stop smoking weed, you little b**tard.
"He's a teenager living in a different day and age. I was in prison before I got a record out and I don't think he's been to prison.
"He's a nice enough kid and you're going to be a teenager, but if you're being a teen in the spotlight you're going to be criticised for it. This career can be short-lived - you might as well be the best you can while you're doing it."
But he clearly hopes JB will take his advice in the friendly manner it was intended, because he said they could still work together.
"Justin and I were talking about doing a movie, which could still happen," he said.
"We have a great script that could be a vehicle for him to make his debut in movies, then maybe we could do something for the soundtrack."
