Wahlberg on ‘The Fighter’s’ Golden Globe noms

Fighter_boffo Mark Wahlberg tried hard to remember that he was telling a real person’s story in “The Fighter.”

“I never lost the sight of the fact that this was about real person, and I was so appreciative that the material brought on the talent it did like Christian (Bale) and Amy (Adams),” he said.

“It mirrors my family in many ways. Of course it takes a very special person to choose fighting and a lot of time fighting chooses them. After doing this film and going through the training I definitely have new respect for Mickey (Ward) and what his family went through.”
