Former “beautiful” person turned beast, actor Mickey Rourke has come out of hiding to accept a
Golden Globe Award and Oscar Nomination, only to scare the crap out of the public, and
even the most seasoned news journalists.
Above are Rourke’s plastic surgery pics. Below is Rourke today transformed into a pumped up roid freak, and looking scary as ever.
Rourke is making the rounds promoting his film The Wrestler, but the interviews are mighty painful to watch.
On the TODAY Show, Matt Lauer tiptoed around Rourke with carefully worded questions, while Rourke ribbed his puffy lips nervously, and from time to time peered through tinted glasses with a strange, shameful, vulnerable expression that one would not expect from such a tough guy.
On The View, the normally perky crew circled around Rourke like mothers to a child, making comments that seemed nothing more than an effort to make the guy feel better about himself. They even brought out his little pooch, announcing her as “his date” which made the whole scene even more pathetic.
Truth be told- I too feel sorry for him, how can you not?
But remember, Rourke did this to himself (a fact he readily admits).
At the height of his career, when being compared to Brando, the guy asks some hacker to:
- Stretch his entire face as tight as can be.
- Add some puff to his lips (which is rather odd for a man don’t you think?)
- Plug in some huge ass cheek implants.
- God knows what else.
- Finish whole deal off with a heavy dose of steroids and you’ve got a self made monster.
Now before you say I am being mean and insensitive – here’s some insight into Rourke’s charming personality;
Just a few weeks ago he was castigated for uttering a “gay slur”
against a Los Angeles journalist, and shortly before that had to
apologize for a foul-mouthed outburst at a female movie executive. “I
didn’t realize that the c-word would be offensive to a lady,” Rourke
explained according to Telegraph.
How lovely. Moving on to the time he cut off his pinkie finger because, hey, he didn’t need it….
“I cut my little finger off because I thought I didn’t want it. I was
angry about something so I decided I didn’t need the end of the little
finger on my left hand. I didn’t cut it off completely – it was still
hanging on a tendon – and an English friend, Gary, carefully carried
the end of it as we went to hospital to try to rectify the situation.
It took the surgeon eight hours to sew it back on. I still can’t bend
it properly.” – Starpulse
With that, I’ll close my chapter on Mickey Rourke. I likely will not see the movie, too depressing, so instead I’ll wait for his next physical transformation.
