Mark Wahlberg - What ever happened to the poor guy who''s eyes he stabbed out?

Anybody else see last night's 60-Minutes interview with "Marky Mark"? The reporter, Laura WhatsHerName giggled and grin throughout the entire thing while recounting to Wahlberg his multiple car thefts, stealing and robbing back in Boston. Even his local priest had an "aw shucks, he was such a little scamp" attitude while recounting how Wahlberg would smile and wave to him while driving by in stolen cars. He robbed a guy outside a store in Dorchester, a Boston 'burb and stabbed him with something and took the man's eye out. Wonder what ever happened to that man and if the very high-brown 'actor' and 'producer' ever compensated him in any way. I had no idea he was such a violent little homophobe.

Here's the story.

Wahlberg claims to have been in trouble 20-25 times with the Boston Police Department as a youth. By the age of 13, Wahlberg had developed an addiction to cocaine and other substances. [5] [6] At 15, he harassed a group of African American school children on a field trip by throwing rocks (causing injuries) and shouting racial epithets. [7] When he was 16, after robbing a pharmacy under the influence of PCP, Wahlberg knocked a middle-aged Vietnamese man unconscious, left another Vietnamese man permanently blind in one eye, and attacked a security guard (again using racist language). [8] [9] For these crimes, Wahlberg was charged with attempted murder, pleaded guilty to assault, and was sentenced to two years in jail at Boston's Deer Island House of Correction, of which he served 45 days (6.16%). [8] [10] In another incident, the 21-year-old Wahlberg fractured the jaw of a neighbor in an unprovoked attack. [11] Commenting in 2006 on his past crimes, Wahlberg has stated : "I did a lot of things that I regretted and I have certainly paid for my mistakes." He said the right thing to do would be to try to find the blinded man and make amends, and admitted he hasn't done so, but added that he was no longer burdened by guilt : "You have to go and ask for forgiveness and it wasn't until I really started doing good and doing right, by other people as well as myself, that I really started to feel that guilt go away. So I don't have a problem going to sleep at night. I feel good when I wake up in the morning." [12]

After landing in prison following this assault, Wahlberg decided to change his ways. In his own words, "As soon as I began that life of crime, there was always a voice in my head telling me I was going to end up in jail. Three of my brothers had done time. My sister went to prison so many times I lost count. Finally I was there, locked up with the kind of guys I'd always wanted to be like. Now I'd earned my stripes and I was just like them and I realized it wasn't what I wanted at all. I'd ended up in the worst place I could possibly imagine and I never wanted to go back. First of all I had to learn to stay on the straight and narrow". Wahlberg first relied on the guidance of his parish priest to turn his back on crime. He told his street gang that he was leaving them and had "some serious fights" with them over it. The actor commented in 2009 : "I've made a lot of mistakes in my life and I've done bad things. But I never blamed my upbringing for that. I never behaved like a victim so that I would have a convenient reason for victimising others. Everything I did wrong was my own fault. I was taught the difference between right and wrong at an early age. I take full responsibility". [13]

[quote] I was taught the difference between right and wrong at an early age. I take full responsibility". I'm sorry, are we supposed to feel sorry for him or excuse him now? I think that little line he uses is what's given him a pass in Hollywood. "Oh look, he was just a troubled kid. He apologized, it's okay." Apparently he was raised by white trash whores and drunks. I'm sure the blind/half blind man who lost his eye for a 6 pack considers his mea culpa appropriate. I mean, it's only his eyesight, right? Mealwhile, Wahlberg lives in Beverly Hills with his fugly little offspring and his mobster-wife mate and speaks to reporters like he's a grand master of the Hollywood game.

I saw an 'E' True Hollywood Story on Marky Mark, and, really, he owes his career to Donnie. When he was in jail after stabbing the Vietnamese guy in the eye, Donnie said he had to fashion a career for his brother. He came up with the idea of having Mark front a group--and saved his brother's life. Without that, Mark would probably be dead by now--or serving a life sentence!

Oh, so because it was one eye and not 2, and punched instead of stabbed, it's not that big of a deal? Fuck you, "TV Critic."

The entire point of this thread is how someone who has a history of unprovoked, racially-motivated attacks resulting in serious injury should not be having their past glossed over like you and this "60 Minutes" interview are doing. He has done nothing to show that he paid for his mistakes except make vague claims that he "does right" and goes to church every day.

On top of all that, he has the nerve to say he didn't bother to make amends with his victims and he doesn't feel guilty anymore. He only apologized at the hearing so the judge would be more lenient.

And you want to say "oh, but it was just ONE eye, and he SEEMS sorry." Rot in hell, fuckwit.

Lainey's Blind item

the top guess for Chocolate is George Clooney

Cuba is either Matt Damon or Mark Wahlberg

Cuba and Chocolate

Two different megastars, two different preferences, but in the end, the act is the same.

The first is a happy father, settled down and reformed, bankable and respected at the same time%E2%80%A6 a major player. Which is why it%E2%80%99s so important that he keeps his Cuban male lover hidden away to be enjoyed when he%E2%80%99s not on location. It might seem risqu%C3%A9, having his secret stashed so close to home and his official partner, but he%E2%80%99s hot and horny, and it%E2%80%99s not like he%E2%80%99s not living in a freestyling environment, although I have to tell you, this one really, really surprised me. He plays it so well. And in the end, if it wasn%E2%80%99t such a fraud, it totally wouldn%E2%80%99t matter. He is the nicest, nicest person. Kind and considerate and generous%E2%80%A6 makes me sad he%E2%80%99s forced to live a lie.

The other is much less attached, but just as heterosexually pressured, perhaps even more so. While he%E2%80%99s best known for his female pursuits, and so many females need to believe it that way, it would seem that women are not his only pleasures. When he decides he has a yearning for the other sex however, his flavour is decidedly darker. Sweet chocolate is what they call it? Yes. Black men are his weakness. On occasion, his hankering for it can get him into trouble. He was recently captivated by a fine black man working security at an event who was, unfortunately, not a homosexual. Apparently our star doesn%E2%80%99t have a very sophisticated gaydar because he hit up the wrong dude who did not appreciate the attention, even coming from such a powerful and coveted celebrity. He almost had his ass kicked. His people had to intervene, placate the man, pay off the man%E2%80%A6 although if he did end up getting the beat-down, he probably would have liked it. Because word is, as time goes on, he%E2%80%99s leaning towards picking a side. Like playing exclusively for the boys team.

It must have been them. Also, if anyone noticed when, during the 60 minutes interview, Marky Mark was asked about Amy Adams, he said, "We sure got lucky there." And that was that. Weird thing to say about an actress so lauded for her chops, and who is playing your love interest. The way this is being marketed - as if she's not even in the movie.

He did not "do the time". He got off very, very light and never made any attempt at amends.

He blinded a guy -- one eye or two doesn't matter -- admits he charmed the judge with a display of remorse so he could get s lighter sentence, serves 45 days (a fraction of his two year sentence), goes on to fame and fortune, NEVER compensates the man he blinded or contacts or attempts to make amends with him in any way, but claimed he's "unburdened by guilt" over this. Oh and he goes to mass every day and supports the catholic church.

"He is to be commended". Yes, because choosing not to beat up racial minorities after awell-connected family member scores you a gig that pays piles of money is so very admirable.

Charlie himself is quite affluent and comes from money. People from this class love to fall all over themselves with paise when someone from the lower classes "makes good"...even when anyone with a critical eye (and no knee-jerk need to prove they "get" the "little people") can see it's all a big lie.

The guy is a thug. He never did the hard work to reform himself, never made any amends with the guy who's eyesight he stole. He just rakes in millions while projecting an image of religious family man.

Wahlberg did not get Oscar prestige for assault and battery. (At most, you could say that he has received critical acclaim in spite of his felonious past, not because of it.)

Then again, Charles Dutton, a fine actor (and I truly think he is), is a convicted murderer. Do you hold that against Dutton, R120?

by Anonymousreply 12105/08/2011

That depends on the circumstances re: Dutton.

If it was felony murder, that's different.

Ryder is blacklisted because she's unstable, not because she shoplifts R120. Also, it's much harder to be female in Hollywood.

Christian Bale, who used to hang around with her when he was young, is a meth & coke head, but works because he has his shit together for shooting. He's also lower profile out and about.

Dutton's a convicted murderer? I knew he was in jail, but this is the info from his IMDb profile%0D %0D [quote]Charles S. Dutton was convicted of possession of a deadly weapon and served a three-year sentence. While in prison he assaulted a corrections officer and was sentenced to an additional 7-1/2 years in prison. While serving his sentence he read a play that amused him so much he started a theatre group. To start the group he had to be attending school, and he had dropped out of school in the seventh grade. He not only took classes to finish his elementary school education, but by the time he finished his sentence he had a two-year college degree.%0D %0D This man sounds far more impressive than Wahlberg.

Also, didn't he also get into a verbal fight with Madonna, and a phsyical fight with her manager at a club, calling Guy Oseary a fag, etc???

A funny video I saw from Lainey which was only a stop motion pic, but a reporter asked Mark Walberg on some red carpet about Justin Bieber, and his wife standing next, let out a huge sigh and rolled her eyes and walked away. Pretty funny stuff.

R136, I don't disagree with you. I am a big believer in a person's capacity to reform and change. But in the case of Mark Wahlberg, I sense a swagger and a self-righteousness, a glibness that just doesn't work for me.

He's been wildly successful. He has enough money and connections to buy himself out of trouble. He's also shrewd and smart enough to keep his world small and familiar. He picks his people and he picks his fights.

I don't hate him. I enjoyed his work in The Fighter, and The Departed, where he essentially played himself. But I don't trust him. Not a guy I'd ever want to meet, or talk to. I think he's a racist and a homophobe. I think it's hardwired into his brain.

A good second-tier actor. In fact, he is a better character actor than a leading man.

As for the BI posted earlier: the married guy is Matt Damon. The story has been out there for years about the Cuban "friend" who lives near him. In fact, I think that at one time the guy was a "personal assistant." Do a search here at DL.

A friend of mine met Damon a few years ago at a Democratic fundraiser. Told me the Damon was real easy on the eyes, nice, and not someone with an attitude. I also heard that anyone with gaydar would definitely get a vibe from him.

Wahlberg was not amused (esp. since the joke came after his loss).

He owes his career in showbiz to his brother Donnie. Donnie put together and promoted his musical group, which lead to the Calvin Klein commercials that made him a star. Donnie also turned to acting first, I'm guessing he had something to do with introducing Mark to some people in Hollywood.

I can't believe people are surprised he's done well in Hollywood after that type of childhood. He sounds impulsive and narcissistic, two qualities found in abundance in Hollywood.

So what made the Wahlberg boys so lucky? Connections,Thuggery and Sex. Being scrappy and amoral got them where they are. Everything Wahlberg touches turns to gold. It's not an accident. I would love to discover the real story behind their ascendance. I suspect it is sordid.

"This burns my ass. He makes millions of dollars and has done nothing to make amends for his thuggish ways."

I am in no way a fan of Mark W. He has been good in a couple film, most recently the one he played the boxer...

He did "pay" in the legal sense which is really all we can evaluate or hold anyone responsible for. And he did change his life. I suppose he is one of the rare ones who did rehabilitate. Are we supposed to think this is a bad thing? Or are we to condemn for life all those who serve their time and go on to live their lives, and do so despite their current behavior? He is not a pedophile you know (something that does not go away or rehabilitate well.) Do they owe the world forever, or do they owe their legal punishment?

I think I would rather leave it up to courts than to public opinion or free floating anger and envy almost as acute as he had as a kid, here on DL. I sure those on this thread who have gotten into trouble might agree.

No one on this thread has any idea of what he does charitably with his current wealth either. This is just one of those screed threads where posters give free rein to their anger at an apparently easy target- in fact few know much of anything about his life since his days of crime. Oh yeah he has been homophobic- but I have ascribed most of that to the language of his culture. He has been no more homophobic in a knee jerk fashion than 50% of the posts you read on DL.

I am no fan. I do find his story interesting because he mostly certainly has found a way out of a life that seemed destined to self desgtruction and harm. I agree he is not a particularly attractive character, still- but he sure is interesting.

People often put episodes in their life they are most ashamed of in a separate mental space and rarely visit them. In some ways that helps them move on which is necessary to get on with life. But he could have and should have tried to find them. They very well could be dead or moved back to Vietnam. That seems more likely or why wouldn't they have sought him out themselves? Maybe Donnie quietly took care of them long ago. Surely though Wahlberg could have someone quietly look into it.

Hmmm. After reading this it sort of warps my small Mark W. story. This was *years ago*, but because I never thought he swam at the same Ymca as me (ifyaknowhatimean) I will post.

I was going to go see some indy movie at the Nuart Theatre in LA, years ago. I had just finished eating at the subway across the street, I was crossing the street on Santa Monica Blvd, there was so much traffic. As I was crossing I noticed 2 guys in a top down car (not good with cars - just the ones with the top down in LA smile) I noticed that the one in the passenger side was stairing at me as I crossed, and when I arrived at the sidewalk. I noticed it was Mark W. The other dude the driver, was looking str8 ahead, but Mark watched as I walked right towards the Theatre. I was dressed casual, nothing major. I thought, hmm weird. I just remember he was kinda intense.

So anyways after reading this... Maybe it was I need to let out some steam and pummel your eyes. Yowza! It was just odd, never pinged for me.

He'd never compensate this man in any way . He has not changed, he just found a racket that is better than his street thug days. Mark Wahlberg is a vulgar, talentless piece of shit and a violent, uneducated street thug. Hollywood or prison are the perfect places for him. But his less than desireable educational and personal characteristics uniquely qualify him for a successful career in Hollywood.

Hollywood is a cesspool. Wahlberg's resume of drug use, arrests for violent attacks, and lack of education is in the eyes of Hollywood akin to finishing with a degree from Harvard. It is the only industry/profession where a criminal past, lack of education and inability to pass drug testing will not be held against you when applying for a job. That kind of past is probably a PLUS in Hollywood.

Educated, professional and decent people who chose to be in the acting business have said they find Hollywood to be a filthy business and that many of the people in it are trash. But to remain employed they must "smile and wave boys, smile and wave" because these same people determine their bread and butter.

Only in a business like Hollywood could a talentless piece of scum like Wahlberg be successful. He must be saying to himself "Wow ---what a racket. I can hardly read but they pay me to ACT".

I'm another who thinks he's a horrible actor and not impressed with his face.

R224 he was already famous as Marky Mark when he started rimming old man ass in Hollywood to advance further...sure there are tons of male prostitutes in LA...but few of them are as famous as marky mark and willing to get jerked off on.

I haven't read the whole thread, but here's a couple things I haven't seen brought up about his homophobia. Shortly after he became famous, he was on a UK talk-show with some fundie douchebag going on about how gays are sinners, going to hell, whatever it was, and Mark started nodding approvingly. He actually stood up and encouraged the audience to applaud. Most of his fans were gay at the time from the underwear ads, and they heard about the talk-show appearance and were pissed. Mark claimed he was just supporting free speech, as it that's an excuse. People don't cheer on the KKK when they spew their racist crap. Being a dullard bigot himself, of course he doesn't get that.

Ang Lee said he offered numerous young actors the leads in Brokeback Mountain, and many were homophobic about it and turned it down. But none but Mark had the nerve to actually say publicly that he turned it down because it grossed him out. He was probably asked to play Ennis, and Ang wanted him to play opposite Joaquin Phoenix. Mark said Joaquin was also grossed out. Joaquin is sensitive enough to being into animal rights, but is too dumb to get what's wrong homophobia. I hate both of them.

I have it on very good authority that Mark Walhberg's association with and interest in the Sandusky affiliated "Second Mile " program was more than just charitable.

Alledgedly.

Why this piece of shit (and his equally assholic and talent free brother) are still in the public eye is beyond me.

Brokeback Mountain freaked him out? How about sucking Heavy Whalestein's cock? His cum must taste like icky Saltines mixed in with stale mushrooms.

R231 You are intimating that he likes young boys. Names,places please......

[quote]GROW UP LIKE MARK DID. WE ALL MAKE BAD CHOICES IN OUR LIFE,SO SHOULD WE PAY FOR THEM ALL OF OUR LIFE.

No we should not pay for bad choices "all of our life."

The big difference is that the Wahlberg THUG did NOT pay for what he did. He NEVER paid for blinding that man's eye. And you can be sure it won't be forgotten.

And since when is stabbing someone's eye out a "bad choice"? You're a sick puppy, R237.

GREASE FIRE! --- JUMP IN, JACKASS!

[quote]I saw an 'E' True Hollywood Story on Marky Mark, and, really, he owes his career to Donnie. When he was in jail after stabbing the Vietnamese guy in the eye, Donnie said he had to fashion a career for his brother. He came up with the idea of having Mark front a group--and saved his brother's life. Without that, Mark would probably be dead by now--or serving a life sentence!

Too bad Donnie helped him.

Many people have turned their lives around and would like to clear their criminal history. Sorry Wahlberg, just because you're famous doesn't give you entitlement. Deal with it.

R242 Heavy Whalestein is a nickname for Harvey Weinstein.

He sounds like someone with an antisocial personality disorder (violent ex-juvenile delinquent, not capable of empathy, good at faking it). People who have that PD mellow out somewhat when they reach middle age, but the mean streak is still evident.

I read somewhere he goes to church every day. He's either lying or seriously needs to grow up and get out more. He would benefit greatly from learning from his victim (if the victim agreed) and other victims how they put THEIR lives back together. Something like mindfulness meditation or group therapy supervised by a shrink or therapist would be much more useful to him and those who love him than sitting in a church (RC I guess?) which is really just a business in disguise, making him think that material success and hefty tithing are a substitute for emotional growth.

Just because he goes to church every day, doesn't mean he's attending any type of religious service. He probably spends his time in the bedroom of his lover/priest.

I have no idea whether he's a homophobe or not.

All I know is one day I passed by him on the street in NY (this was 14 years ago) - and I felt that he cruised me fairly intently.

Documents included in his pardon request show he called the Vietnamese immigrant a 'Vietnam f***ing s***' before striking him so hard that the stick broke in two and knocked Lam unconscious, according to the documents shared by The Smoking Gun. He then fled the scene and approached a second man, Hoa Trinh, put his arm around his shoulder and asked him to help him hide. But once police passed, Wahlberg hit him, leaving him blind in one eye. When Boston cops tracked Wahlberg down and took him back back to the scene of the assault outside a convenience store in Dorchester, he told officers: 'You don't have to let him identify me, I'll tell you now that's the motherf***** whose head I split open', the documents show.

Authorities wrote that he also made 'numerous unsolicited racial statements about 'gooks' and 'slant-eyed gooks'.' In his plea, Wahlberg said that he was under the influence of alcohol and drugs at the time. 'From later accounts of the incident, it is my understanding that I may have caused serious injuries' to the men, he wrote. Other documents show that, in an earlier attack in Dorchester, he and two friends saw a group of black siblings and chased them.

'We don't like black n****** in the area so get the f*** away from the area,' the boys shouted at the group, according to the documents. They then chased the boys, shouting: 'Kill the n*****, kill the n*****'. The following day, the group encountered one of the boys again and threw rocks at him. One of the rocks thrown by Wahlberg and one of his friends hit a nearby girl. The trio caused 'a high level of anxiety, fear and intimidation', the documents said. Though he was then only 16 at the time of the 1988 attack, he was charged as an adult and convicted of assault. According to NECN the initial charge was attempted murder. After emerging from prison, Wahlberg went on to find success in music with Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch and as a Calvin Klein model.

No matter how much success he's had, he's still a thug and his real reason for requesting a pardon is so he can own guns.

With his new found wealth he's eyeing (ha!) a nice 3 bedroom in a good neighborhood in JP as we speak. Ka-ching!

I can no longer watch Mark Wahlberg in any film. He is such a thug! It amazes me the scum that many Americas follow. I wonder how he would feel if someone did that to his mother??

How 'bout it Wahlberg?? ...a punk wanting a pardon.
