The 'Fighter' actor wants to finish his education before his children graduate from schools.
Actor Mark Wahlberg is heading back to school - he plans to hire a private tutor so he can complete his education. "The Fighter" star endured a turbulent childhood, spiraling into drug addiction and spending time behind bars after dropping out of school in his teens.
But despite going on to forge a hugely successful Hollywood career, Wahlberg still has ambitions to boost his academic ability. He tells Britain's The Sun, "I need to get a diploma before my kids graduate! I definitely want to further my education. I've got a few years."
"Somebody was on a plane with me recently and said, 'Oh, I'll get a guy to come over and tutor you for a couple of hours.' I was like, 'It will be more like a couple of months.' But I think I've got to do it. I'll feel great about it once I do."
