Star of “Broken City,” MARK WAHLBERG makes and appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday, January 17th. Mark chats with Ellen about his busy schedule, working on his Mom’s new reality show and how he injured his toe…and then he shows off his toe. Apparently his feet don’t stink.
Check out the highlights of the interview below.
ON HIS MOM’S REALITY SHOW AND HOW HE INJURED HIS TOENAIL:
Mark: It’s a very lively crowd here. It woke me up. I’ve had a long day
Ellen: What have you been doing?
Mark: I just flew in from Boston. I flew in from a snowstorm
Ellen: Really, today?
Mark: Yeah. We were in Boston last night. New York yesterday during the day. We were doing publicity for “Broken City” and we had a fundraiser at a restaurant “Wahlburgers” and my mom is now filming a reality show that we sold to the history channel about building a family business.
Ellen: Oh wow
Mark: So we went there to do that and then I jumped on a plane this morning and there was 2 1/2 inches of snow and it was very bumpy and I had to have half my toenail removed.
Mark: The thing’s just growing the wrong way. So I had a problem before and the guy Mickey O’ Keefe who played himself in “The Fighter”?
Mark: He’s a police officer? Well his daughter in-law, thank god is a podiatrist came so she came and cut half my toenail off.
Ellen: Wait, ok so I’m still in the snow. Did this happen on the plane?
Mark: It happened before I got on the plane.
Ellen: Before you got on the plane? So are you shot up with pain stuff or?
Mark: It’s worn off now.
Ellen: So now you’re in pain?
Mark: Yes. I’m feeling it…But the energy is making me feel better…I apologize; I know that was a random story.
Ellen: I love random stories. I don’t like to stay on the straight and narrow. Can we see it?
Mark: Do you wanna see it? It’s wrapped up. You don’t believe me?
Ellen: I believe you. Was it an ingrown toenail?
Ellen: It was the Big toe?
Mark: Yes. That’s the medical term.
Ellen: I still don’t know if I believe you. I think you have that on there…
Mark: I never go without socks.
Ellen: But why?
Mark: I just don’t.
Ellen: You have good feet. You have really good feet.
Mark: Because I always wear socks.
Ellen: Let it air out…. That’s good. Let it rest, it needs to rest. [Mark puts feel up] Can I get you a drink?
