Mark Wahlberg says filming “Patriots Day” — about the Boston Marathon bombing — was made more emotional because he was shooting in his hometown.

“It’s such a small community, so everyone knew someone who was affected,” he said after a New York screening for guests including former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“I also felt a sense of pride being there. It was extremely difficult making [the] movie . . . it’s becoming more and more difficult to talk about it.”

Kevin Bacon added of reports that New York’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade was a target: “You have to choose whatever feels right to you and your family . . . but what I choose is to not live in fear. Because if you live in fear, they won.”
