Watch out, Harry Styles — and the rest of One Direction — because Mark Wahlberg is coming after you. The “Lone Survivor” star tells Conan O’Brien that he wants to beat up the members of the ultra-popular boy band because his daughters are now way more interested in 1D than they are in their father and his work.
“The tables have turned to One Direction and it’s like they don’t care about dad anymore,” Wahlberg says. “My 4-year-old’s going ‘Daddy, I like Harry!’ And I’m like ‘Well I’m going to punch Harry in the nose when I see him!'”
Wahlberg also reveals his nefarious plan to exact revenge for taking away his daughters’ affections: He’ll invite the guys of 1D to the “Transformers 3” premiere and lure them into a room, where he will then beat them up. Fool proof!
Seriously, though, he does hope to get his daughters some face time with the boys. “I am going to make a point to get my daughters to meet them. I’d rather do it now, [when they’re 4 and 10] — that’ll be the only time I’ll ever introduce them to a boy. After that, they get locked. It’s Rapunzel time,” he says. It’s unclear if he’s joking or not.
