Now, we all know Mark Wahlberg for being one of Hollywood’s most prolific actors…

And he’s risen to levels of unprecedented fame since his first acting job in 1994.

He’s best known for roles in movies such as The Perfect Storm (2000), Planet of the Apes (2001), and The Italian Job (2003)…

And he’s also known for comedic roles in movies such as Ted (2012) and Daddy’s Home (2015).

​In fact, believe it or not, he was the highest-paid actor in the world in 2017.

Quite an impressive accolade, we must say!

Alongside acting, Wahlberg is also a producer and businessman…

And he received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame back in 2010.

So, there’s no denying he’s had an extremely successful professional life…

But behind the scenes, things haven’t always been so seemingly perfect.

In fact, the actor is certainly no stranger to controversy.

As a teenager, Wahlberg, who comes from a family of 9 siblings, dropped out of high school and quickly became embroiled in a life of crime.

By the age of thirteen, he was addicted to drugs…

And he got himself involved in drug dealing, stealing, and all-around violent behavior which would eventually lead to him serving time in prison at the age of sixteen.

He’s certainly lead a very interesting life…

But sadly, the actor was caught up in some pretty bad antics as a teenager and a young man.

While living in Boston in the 1980s, Wahlberg was twice charged for race-related hate crimes, serving time in jail for one of the attacks.

In 2014, the actor attempted to seek pardon for one of the attacks and have it wiped from his criminal record, saying that while his celebrity should “in no way, shape or form” be a reason to grant it, he hoped his recent actions would show that he had changed.“I am deeply sorry for the actions that I took on the night of April 8th, 1988, as well as for any lasting damage that I may have caused the victims. Since that time, I have dedicated myself to becoming a better person and citizen so that I can be a role model to my children and others,” he wrote in his pardon application.

He later dropped this request in 2016 and in a 2020 interview with The Guardian, he explained that he had “done the work” to make things right.

​“I took it upon myself to own up to my mistakes and go against the grain and not be a part of the gang anymore – to say that I was going to go and do my own thing,” he explained.“[It] made it ten times more difficult to walk from my home to the train station, to go to school, to go to work. But I also prided myself on doing the right thing and turning my life around… I would hope that people would be able to get a second chance in life.”

It’s clear that Wahlberg deeply regrets his vicious crimes…
