Wahlberg Startled By Atheist Fan
MARK WAHLBERG is still rattled by a 2004 fan-charging incident during a guest appearance on MTV's TRL - because the crazed girl who rushed at him wasn't very Christian.
The actor was promoting a movie on the show when a screaming fan ran towards Wahlberg and had to be pulled off him by security guards - and the star fears her intentions might not have been altogether good.
He explains, "The only thing that was a bit disturbing was she had a pin (badge) on that said 'God is not real' and that was upsetting to me. But I still pray for her to this day. Hopefully she's changed her mind."
The deeply religious star, a Catholic, has a small chapel in his Hollywood mansion.
