Mark Wahlberg.

Maybe Mark Wahlberg shouldn't have inserted his ego into a question about 9/11. The "Contraband" star, who was scheduled to be on the American Airlines flight from Boston to Los Angeles that crashed into the World Trade Center on 9/11, toldĀ  Men's Journal in their latest issue, "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.'"

Families of 9/11 victims were quick to express their disgust. Wahlberg apologized late Wednesday, saying in a statement, "To speculate about such a situation is ridiculous to begin with, and to suggest I would have done anything differently than the passengers on that plane was irresponsible. I deeply apologize to the families of the victims that my answer came off as insensitive; it was certainly not my intention."
