Found January 18, 2012 on Lost My Way:
PLAYERS: Mark Wahlberg
Picture Mark Wahlberg: movie star and superhero. When you're a big movie star you're allowed to say outrageous things because people will listen to you. So during an interview with Men's Fitness Wahlberg had this to say about 9/11: "If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did. There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘OK, we’re going to land somewhere safely, don’t worry.'" Well it's a shame that he wasn't on the plane because a national tragedy would have been averted.

I've heard crazy statements before and while somebody might not see that much harm in the comment you have to think of the implications. In short Mark Wahlberg just called everybody who was on the flights a bunch of *******. Do I think that Mark Wahlberg could have stopped 9/11? I'm not sure, I don't know if he's as tough as the characters he plays in movies, although you have to assume that a 5'7" movie star isn't all that intimidating. I just know that according to him he has the power to avert disasters.

TL;DR Mark Wahlberg is a hero in his movies and in his own mind.
