(CNN) – In the famous words of rapper Eminem, if you had one shot, or one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted, would you capture it, or just let it slip?

(CNN) – Before he just played one in the movies, Mark Wahlberg was a criminal in real life. In 1988, when he was 16 years old, he assaulted two men while high on drugs and alcohol.
He beat one so badly, the victim was left blinded in one eye, according to ABC News.
The sentencing memorandum notes Wahlberg also made racial slurs during and after the attack. After pleading guilty, Wahlberg served 45 days for the crime.

(CNN) – Mike Nichols, legendary filmmaker, masterful storyteller, and one of the few people to win an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar and a Tony award, died Wednesday.
Nichols, 83, was a masterful storyteller whose most famous final scene, was from only the second film he'd ever directed – "The Graduate."
His characters illustrated, and acted out our lives, loves, failings, from the dissolution of a marriage in "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf," to our willingness to betray ourselves to please those we love in "Birdcage".
