Mark Wahlberg: One of My Big Regrets was Quitting High School

Mark Wahlberg poses for a pic with a fan while leaving Bristol Farms on Wednesday (May 22) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 41-year-old actor recently discussed one of his biggest regrets: not finishing high school.

“One of the big regrets in my life is that I didn’t finish school,” Mark told MTV News. “I quit when I was in the ninth grade… I didn’t have too many people to look up to so the key for me to really make an impact was just to speak to them [students] directly — tell them about my story.”

    I would have thought his biggest regret would’ve been nearly killing that Asian shopkeeper in a racist attack, for which he went to prison.

    His story is that he quit school and became incredibly successful anyway. He’s a multi-millionaire movie star. I’ve got a high school diploma, a college diploma and a university degree. Where’s my big pay cheque?

    There’s an Asian man who probably has a different biggest regret – losing an eye after being beaten mercilessly by Wahlberg in a racially-motivated attack.
