The Departed's Matt Damon comforted his co-star Mark Wahlberg during the fifth game of the Los Angeles Lakers-Boston Celtics NBA finals about the poor reviews Wahlberg has been receiving for his work in The Happening. Wahlberg felt especially hurt about the negative comments about his acting. Wahlberg said, "I really tried with my performance. I did my research. I remembered my lines. But, I gotta admit, I was totally caught off-guard by the fact that we were supposed to be making a B-movie. Nobody told me that."
Damon told Wahlberg that it happens, but it shouldn't bring him down. Damon said, "You can't win them all. But you just can't please everybody with every movie you do. I've got lucky the past couple of years with the Bourne movies, but don't worry about it. You'll win 'em back next time." Wahlberg hope that he would be able to win back the audience's trust with his next film. Wahlberg said, "If the next script I read even has one single scene involving a tree, I'm passing — even if Scorsese is directing it." Damon asked Wahlberg if he would feel better if he got to sing about how he's fucking Matt Damon. Wahlberg nodded and said, "It'd make me feel a lot better if I was fucking Matt Damon."
