Mark Wahlberg - Ward's Sisters Unhappy With The Fighter

The sisters of boxer MICKY WARD are unhappy with their portrayal in MARK WAHLBERG's new movie THE FIGHTER, according to the film's director.
The Hollywood actor brings the real-life story of former world champion 'Irish' Mickey Ward to the big screen in the new picture, which has won rave reviews and a number of high profile awards nominations.
The film reveals the relationship between Ward and his boxer step-brother DICky Ecklund, and also focuses on their family, including seven sisters, who are portrayed as rude and foul-mouthed and are even seen scrapping with Amy Adams' onscreen character.
However, director David O. Russell admits the real-life female siblings are unimpressed with their representation, and one even left a screening of the film.
He tells the New York Daily News, "One sister walked out when we were screening it for them. I talked to the family about it, and they said 'One out of seven ain't bad.'"
