Oscars: Mark Wahlberg's knockout moment

February 27, 2011 |  7:26 pm

Mark Mark Wahlberg had a moment when Kirk Douglas made his presentation. Later in the evening, sipping wine, he said it was a knockout moment to see the 94-year-old actor on stage.

"Kiss the feet, right? I watched every boxing movie ever made to get ready for 'The Fighter,' and Kirk Douglas is one of those guys. I love him. What he did in those movies. I mean, I'm not ever going to be one of those Cary Grant guys. I'm not pretty, you know? There's nobody tonight that I want to meet more than Kirk Douglas."
