Hollywood Life: Mark Wahlberg's journey to his pardon petition

Mark Wahlberg has been living for nearly 27 years with the consequences of his attack on a Vietnamese man. The victim, Johnny Trinh, recently spoke out for the first time and said that he forgives Wahlberg for beating him. Wahlberg, 43, also talked about the experience at the New York premiere of his movie "The Gambler."

Wahlberg was 16 when he was charged with several crimes, including assault, for punching Trinh in the eye after fleeing from the attack of another Vietnamese man that he beat over the head. Wahlberg was sentenced to 45 days in jail.

Last month Wahlberg petitioned to have his crimes pardoned. In response to those who object to a pardon, Wahlberg said: "I can't control how they feel. I don't think they understand the privilege to every side of it. I think if people understood the debt that I've paid back to society, if people understood what it's like to be a 16-year-old kid incarcerated in an adult prison at 5-foot-2 and 110 pounds, it's not a nice place to be."

Game for romance?

"Game of Thrones" stars Lena Headey, 41, and Pedro Pascal, 39, continued to fuel rumors that they are dating after being spotted out shopping together Wednesday. At The Grove in Los Angeles, Heady was seen laughing while Pascal had his arms wrapped around her, according to the Daily Mail.
