In the issue, the movie star discusses how he was scheduled to be on one of the planes that crashed into the World Trade Center on Sept. 11.

“If I was on that plane with my kids, it wouldn’t have went down like it did," Mark says. "There would have been a lot of blood in that first-class cabin and then me saying, ‘Okay, we’re going to land somewhere safely. Don’t worry.’ ”

Now, to be fair, Men's Journal hasn't posted the complete interview, so the context of the quote is unknown.
