Mickey Rourke made a personal appearance after a screening of The Wrestler for SAG members in West Hollywood Saturday night. The movie, directed by Darran Aronofsky, was grueling and violent but brilliant. One of the most fascinating aspects of the film was the backstage camaraderie between the wrestlers. Onstage after the movie, Mickey revealed that he gained 30 pounds of muscle for the part (and he looks a lot better now without that weight.) Clad in sharkskin pants and jacket, Mickey captivated the audience with stories about making the movie such as the time Darren the director reminded Mickey about his sick dog Loki to make him more emotional in a sensitive scene. Fortunately,16 year old Loki recovered, and was in the audience.

    If the film doesn’t help his acting career, he can always go back to selling oranges by the freeway entrance.

    Good for him. Maybe he is getting back to what he used to do so well, ACT! Lay off him already.

    He may not be what he used to be, but who is, really? We all get older. You have to admit, there is something special about a man that loves their pet that much. It shows Hollywood hasn’t sucked his soul completely dry yet.

Every post you write makes NO sense whatsoever and all you do is rave about “faggots”…you know…those that rave like you do usually ARE the closet queens, it’s a known fact, closet jerk-off!! Why don’t you do the world a favor and go swallow some drano???!!!

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
