Mark Wahlberg Explains Why He Wants to Be Pardoned, Says It's Not About Entitlement

Mark Wahlberg and Will Ferrell zip around on a motorcycle while filming scenes for their latest venture together titled Daddy’s Home on Tuesday (December 16) in New Orleans, La.

The 43-year-old actor recently explained why he wants a pardon for his crime of beating up a man back in 1988.

“I think for most people, the initial reaction was, ‘Oh, well he is very successful now, so he just feels a sense of entitlement, he should get a pardon.’ And it wasn’t about that, the only reason why I felt even confident in asking, whether the answer was yes or no, is because of how much work I’ve done to give back and how much I’ve done to better myself and prevent kids from making the kinds of mistakes and working with inner city kids and at risk youth. That’s why I felt comfortable in asking,” Mark told Yahoo.

Mark added about the man, Johnny Trinh, forgiving him for his crime, “I can’t wait to thank him in person and give him a big hug, and being a devout Catholic, the only way to be forgiven is to forgive for him to come out all these years later and tell the truth.”

Nicki Minaj Named New Face of Roberto Cavalli - See Her Glamour Shots!

Nicki Minaj has just been named the new face of the Spring/Summer 2015 advertising campaign for Roberto Cavalli.

“I chose Nicki Minaj because she embodies the exuberant and modern femininity of the Cavalli woman. In recent years we have become accustomed to women castigated in clothes that hide their body shapes. With this campaign, I wanted to send a strong countertrend message. I wanted a sensual woman who is aware of her body, who is not afraid to show her curves, rather she make them as a strength,” Roberto himself said in a statement.

Nicki posed for the fashion shoot in Los Angeles. It was shot by Francesco Carrozzini (who along with being a famous photographer, is also known for being Lana Del Rey‘s boyfriend!)
