Mickey Rourke Really Gets Into Character
In The Wrestler, Mickey Rourke plays, get this, a wrestler! A wrestler who uses all sorts of enhancements to look all beastly and wrestler-like. Men's Journal (via Rush & Molloy) suggests that Mickey had a little help from Roidy McRoids. When asked about this claim, Mickey slipped his hand into his safe place and said, “When I’m a wrestler, I behave like a wrestler.”
Hasn't 21st century Mickey Rourke always looked like he was made from one of Vadge's roided-up vag lips? I figured roids were part of his daily ritual. He gets up, accidentally looks in the mirror, goes to get the kitchen, grabs a dustpan, cleans up the broken mirror he just looked into, takes out a needle and jabs it into his face cheek. You know his face eats roids. Major.
I went to see Mickey's hatchet face show in The Wrestler last week and he kind of charmed my ass in a "do me in a dirty trailer" kind of way. It's sad, but I'd totally let him hit it on a barb wire fence. He won't win a Golden Globe tonight, but I hope he does so that we can watch the statue shake in fear from being so close to his overdone scrambled eggs face.
