Don't call him Mark Wahlberg Marky Mark again. Ever. He's a respectable actor now, folks. No, really, he is pretty damn good, appearing...

After Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg got engaged back in April, one voice was suspiciously absent from the chorus of congratulations.

Donnie's A-list younger brother Mark Wahlberg kept mum on the topic of his sister-in-law-to-be and it seems we now know: he can't stand her!

Donnie and Jenny made it official over the weekend, but Mark pulled a Rob Kardashian and skipped his own sibling's wedding. He did, however, post this video to Instagram congratulating the newlyweds:

Yes, it was nice of Mark to take the time to post that clip online, but a 15-second greeting in which you don't even mention the couple by name isn't quite the same as attending your brother's wedding.

Forbes magazine has released its annual list of the top-earning actors in Hollywood, and you may find yourself astonished not only by the stars who took the top two spots, but also by the staggering amount some A-listers pulled in this past year. 

Amazingly, the highest paid actor of 2013 has managed to do it again, as Robert Downey, Jr. took home a cool $75 million thanks to his ongoing role as Tony Stark/Iron Man.

The former Marky Mark earned $32 million in the past year, thanks to roles in films like Lone Survivor and Pain & Gain.

Downey played hardball before signing on to Avengers: Age of Ultron, and he's reportedly been rewarded with his biggest pay day to date.

And just how big has Marvel's tent pole franchise become? The number five spot on the list is none other than Thor himself, Chris Hemsworth, who - despite being paid about half what Downey pulled in last year - still took home a not-too-shabby $39 mill.

But while the actors in the gallery above certainly aren't hurting, the movie industry ain't what it used to be and of all the past year's top earning actors, only RDJ (just barely) cracked the top 10 on Forbes' 2014 list of the most powerful entertainers.

Note to Harry Styles: Run and hide.

Mark Wahlberg was a guest on Conan this week and acknowledged that, yes, his kids are excited to see him in Transformers 4.

But his daughters are sort of over their father being a movie star these days and are totally focused on One Direction instead, Harry Styles in particular.

So how does Wahlberg plan on solving this problem? Simple: invite the group to a red carpet premiere. Lure Styles to him... and then punch the "prick" in the face.

Watch him hilariously explain the scheme now:

Mark Wahlberg went OFF this week on actors comparing themselves to soldiers in an expletive-filled rant that did not name Tom Cruise by name, but ...

Given the controversy over comments in Cruise's lawsuit deposition in which he compares acting to fighting in Afghanistan, the implication is clear.

Speaking at the AFI Festival, Wahlberg lashed out, "For actors to sit there and talk about 'oh I went to SEAL training? I don't give a f--k what you did."

"For somebody to sit there and say 'my job was as difficult as being in the military.' How f--king dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for 2 hours."

"I don't give a s--t if you get your ass busted. You get to go home at the end of the day. You get to go to your hotel room. You get to order your f--king chicken."

Mark Wahlberg is feeling some good vibrations this week.

The actor, 42, dropped out of high school in ninth grade, but the Oscar nominee wrote in a Huffington Post op-ed yesterday that he went back, worked hard... and has earned his diploma!

"My circumstances were not unlike millions of other teens today, who live in tough working class neighborhoods surrounded by drugs, violence and crime, and who struggle to stay on the right path without positive influences," Wahlberg wrote, adding that he's been "lucky" to have a career that enabled him to graduate after all these years.

Mark Wahlberg has been where Justin Bieber is at now.

The Oscar nominee was once a teenage star and, in light of Bieber's impressive run of scandals and moronic behavior (peeing in a bucket? Really?!?), Wahlberg has some advice for the young celebrity.

"Justin, are you listening? Don't be so naughty, yeah?" Wahlberg joked in a Webchat with Great Britain's The Sun. "Be a nice boy, pull your trousers up, make your mum proud, yeah? Stop smoking all that weed, you little bastard."

The actor was mostly kidding, however, though he did then get serious and jump to Justin's defense.

Pain and Gain is like if a Coen Brothers movie and a Scorsese movie had a baby and that baby disappointed its parents and went into porn.

At its core, the film is about a trio of hapless men just trying to get ahead in life, but who end up getting in way over their heads.

The difference between Pain and Gain and every Coen Brothers movie with that premise is that Michael Bay’s hapless men aren’t timid and pathetic.

They’re not looking for recompense or justice. They’re just greedy meatheads.

Justin Bieber has a pair of major celebrities in his corner.

At last night's premiere of Pain & Gain, both 50 Cent and Mark Wahlberg responded to the controversy surrounding Bieber and his recent Anne Frank comments, with the rapper echoing the sentiment that has landed Bieber in trouble:

"She probably would have been [a belieber]," Fiddy said of the Holocaust victim.

Shia LaBeouf is out.

And Mark Wahlberg is in?!?

Confirming surprising rumors that circulated around the Internet last week, Transformers director Michael Bay left a note on his website yesterday that acknowledged the Oscar nominee would anchor the fourth installment in this critically-lambasted franchise.

Referring to a recent collaboration between the pair, Bay wrote:

"Mark is awesome. We had a blast working on 'Pain and Gain' and I’m so fired up to be back working with him. An actor of his caliber is the perfect guy to re-invigorate the franchise and carry on the 'Transformers’ legacy."

The first three Transformers flicks have earned more than $2.6 billion worldwide. But, come on, they're terrible.

What do you think of Wahlberg  being cast in Transformers 4, which comes out in June 2014?
