Well, this is surprising!

The man who was brutally attacked by Mark Wahlberg 26 years ago just wants bygones to be bygones!

Back in 1988, the now 43-year-old Transformers star was convicted and put in jail for 45 days for attacking and using racial slurs on two Vietnamese men.

During that attack, the media had reported that Marky Mark left one of the men blind in his left eye, but fast forward many years later, and the world finds out that didn't actually happen!

He finally speaks!

It recently surfaced that Mark Wahlberg is trying to be pardoned for an assault conviction he received in 1988.

Since then, there's been a lot of speculation as to why he's trying to get it pardoned, and why he thinks it should be pardoned now!

In his application to the parole board, he writes that he has "used the public spotlight to speak openly about the mistakes [he] made as a teenager so that others do not make those same mistakes."

That being said, it's easy to see why a lot of people are saying he's using his position as a celeb to wipe his record clean.

But during the New York premiere of The Gambler on Wednesday, the actor claimed that's not the case at all!

Winning Vintage Charlie Sheen

Filed under: Charlie SheenSad SadLarry King

Woah! For anyone questioning the legitimacy of Charlie Sheen's mental "winning" breakdown, take a look at this clip (above) of the warlock appearing Larry King Live in 1988 shortly after the success of Platoon.

Intelligent, humble, gracious, and shockingly, he actually cared about his body!

As Sheen talks about his success as an actor after the war film, he told Larry King:

"It's not about getting bigger, it's about being better. It's about focusing on the work, staying true to myself, not abusing the body, and just trying to put across performances that people are entertained by."

It looks like his priorities have changed with age, to say the least.

This clip reminds us of why we fell in love with Charlie Sheen to begin with, but at the same time, saddens us to realize we may never get him back.

Ladies and gentlemen, here is some vintage Sheen.

Jean Paul Gaultier Sings!

In 1988, Jean Paul Gaultier tried to see if he could make it big in the music industry.

Unfortunately, his music career was about as long as a fashion show, but he did release a music video!

The song is called How To Do That and features Naomi Campbell, who also failed to make it as a singer.

The video is pretty wild and the fashion is AMAZING.

Check out JPG's music debut in the clip, above!
