“Lone Survivor” star Mark Wahlberg made an appearance on Conan’s show Thursday evening, with the overprotective father joking about his daughter’s being huge One Direction fans.
Mark joked that he would lure the guys from One Direction and then punch Harry Styles in the nose.
Wahlberg’s daughters Ella, 10, and Grace, 4, are big fans of the British boy-band and their papa isn’t thrilled.
The father-of-four explains that his daughters aren’t interested in his movie career anymore. “My four-year-old’s going, ‘Daddy, I like Harry [Styles].’ And I’m like, ‘Well I’m gonna punch Harry in the nose when I see him'”.
He adds, “She hides pictures of him in her room, and I pretend to rip them up and get jealous.”
Mark Wahlberg joked about his evil plan to corner Niall Horan, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson and Harry Styles.
He said, “I could say, ‘Hey I really wanna meet One Direction, I’m a big fan,’ and invite them to the [Transformers 4] premiere,” he said. “Maybe you can do the title track for the song, and then I would beat the crap out of them in a video.”
Conan laughed, asking the actor if his plan was to “lure One Direction to help you with a project, get them into a room, and then beat the crap out of Harry?”
“Probably all of them, actually,” he quipped back.
Mark then said, “I am gonna make a point to try to get my daughters to meet them. I’d rather do it now—my oldest is 10, and she’s into them as well. And that’ll be the only time I’ll ever introduce them to a boy. After that, they’re getting locked up,” he said, joking, “It’s Rapunzel time.”
