Mark Wahlberg's troubled past is no secret. He dropped out of school in the 9th grade being charged with attempted murder.
Well the 42 year old actor just earned his high school diploma in June and said his kids were the reason: "I didn't want the kids saying, 'You didn't do it, so why do I need it?' They are all wanting to do things in their future that require an education."
He hired a tutor and worked between scenes on his movie "Two Guns" not admitting to most what he was doing because he wanted to finish the task first.
Congrats Mark Wahlberg!! Check out the rest of the article here.
