Mark Wahlberg, 41, has revealed that he's pursuing the high school diploma that he never earned as teenager. The singer-turned-actor, who has been open about using drugs and alcohol while growing up in Boston, left school at a very early age. "I was climbing out the window and staying out all night when I was 12 or 13, and by the time I was 13 or 14, I stopped going to school," he once told Vanity Fair. "My older brothers taught me how to get high when I was 10, and gave me a couple beers. ... When I was 13, 14, 15, I had a pretty serious cocaine problem." Now that he's clean, the reformed Wahlberg plans to complete his studies online through a New Orleans-based company. "They're going to give me whatever credits I already have, which is probably like one or two," he joked on 'Late Show With David Letterman.' "But I'm going to make it happen."
