After his recent red carpet rant, Mark Wahlberg decided to clear the air regarding rumors that his harsh words were directed towards fellow actor Tom Cruise.

As previously reported by GossipCenter, Mark lashed out against actors who compare themselves to soldiers at the red carpet premiere of his flick "Lone Survivor."

"For actors to sit there and talk about 'Oh I went to SEAL training, ' and I slept on the - I don't give a f--k what you did. How f--king dare you. You don't do what these guys did," “The Departed” actor explained.

Wahlberg continued, "For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as somebody in the military's. How f--king dare you. While you sit in a makeup chair for two hours."

The Internet was a fire storm after the rant hit the airwaves and now the 42-year-old is clearing up certain rumors.

"I didn't know that Tom Cruise was the one who said that," Mark stated to a TMZ cameraman. "I love Tom Cruise. He's a great actor."

"I have the utmost respect for Tom Cruise, but I have the utmost respect for military guys; it's just unfair for anybody to comment on that," he added.
