In his acceptance speech for the Generation Award at last night’s MTV Movie Awards, Mark Wahlberg commented that like past winners—including Adam Sandler, Ben Stiller, and Jennifer Aniston—he is now a part of a group who is, in MTV’s gaze, “f*cking old” and “f*cking done.” He spanned the breadth of his highs and lows commenting, “I’m a lucky guy in so many ways to have worked with so many talented people, to have gone from literally being incarcerated to having a one-hit rap career to having an underwear modeling career to getting a real chance from Penny Marshall,” he continued, pausing only to lay down a few more bleeps, commanding the audience to shush. “I’m about to cry in a minute — hold on!”

The rambling-but-coherent speech came from a “truly blessed man” with an “extraordinary life.” He also managed to plug the upcoming Entourage movie, Ted 2, and his Victoria’s Secret wife (“I don’t know how the f*ck that happened, but this is America and anything is possible!”). In the end Wahlberg proved that ten-fold.
