Mark Wahlberg isn't ready to tell his kids about his troubled past.

The 'Broken City' actor - who has children Ella, nine, Michael, seven, Brendan, four, and Grace, three, with wife RHEA DURHAM - was in trouble with police more than 20 times when he was a teenager and eventually sent to jail for assault, and while he isn't ashamed of his past, doesn't want his kids to think it is acceptable to behave recklessly.

He told Red Bulletin magazine: ''They are still young, and I'm not telling them anything until I have to. I will wait until the last possible minute.

''I certainly don't want to hide my past, but I don't want to make it seem like, 'Daddy went through bad stuff and he came out OK. We can do what we want, it will work itself out,' because that isn't the case.

''I don't know any other success stories of people who survived the kind of place I grew up in and the choices I made and still have the freedom and luxury to talk about it.''

Mark feels lucky to have escaped his past, especially when he thinks about what has happened to his old friends.

He said: ''Let's say I was a petty criminal for a while, but I was lucky enough to be able to get clean, unlike most of my friends from that time, who are dead or in jail. Today, the only real vice I have is golf.''
