Mark Wahlberg is proving it's never too late for an education.
Handsome, wealthy movie star or not, Wahlberg is setting out to complete his high school diploma. The actor says his troubled youth derailed him from the milestone, but he'll shoot for his cap and gown online.
"I quit kind of during the ninth grade," Wahlberg told David Letterman of schooling in his teen years (watch his full "Late Show" appearance below).
The "Contraband" star will use a new Web-based program in Massachusetts to earn an actual diploma (as opposed to the popular GED equivalent), and transfer the existing credits he earned.
