He’s made a slew of successful films and has firm roots as one of Hollywood’s A-list, but Mark Wahlberg surprisingly never graduated from high school. That’s all about to change, as the Ted star has revealed that he’s going back to school…online.
Wahlberg, a high school dropout, revealed on Monday night’s “Late Show with David Letterman” that he has enrolled himself in an online program and finally plans on receiving his diploma.
He said: “They had this new program in Massachusetts where you can take the courses online so I’m starting this month and getting my high school diploma. I’ve got to take on all the courses I’ve missed so I’m a little nervous.”
The 41-year-old star added: “I’m going to make it happen though. I have a lot of downtime on movie sets in the trailer and stuff so I’m just going to blast through it in eight months or so hopefully.”
The Oscar nominee is currently the ambassador for Taco Bell’s Graduate-To-Go program.
