Actually, let me ask this: is there anyone in Hollywood that graduated from high school? After doing a little research on this, it seems like almost everyone in the entertainment world is not only filthy rich, but without high school diplomas as well. There are a few celebrity parents though who are determined to change that.
Big screen tough guy (and forever Marky Mark to me) Mark Wahlberg recently admitted that even though he’s got millions in the bank and a pretty successful film career, he’s ready to go back to high school to get his diploma. And it’s not a GED that he wants, but an actual diploma that he plans on getting by completing online courses with the education system in the state of Massachusetts.
Fortunately for Mark, he’s not alone in his quest in getting a diploma. Another celebrity parent who is willing to go back to school to get her education is new mom Beyonce. Blue Ivy’s mama was recently spotted at an Alternative Education Complex where she is currently studying to pass for her GED. Queen Bey dropped out at age 15 when she joined Destiny’s Child and even though she had a tutor with her while she was on tour, she never went back to high school to get her diploma.
