Celebs Addicted to the Knife: Mickey Rourke

leave a comment »

Actor Mickey Rourke, whose career has been on a downward spiral for quite sometime now, has found himself back to acting in movies and he was richly rewarded for playing “The Wrestler” and was up for an Oscar Nomination yesterday evening and also took home a Golden Globe earlier this year for his lead role in “The Wrestler” as well.


It seems that Mickey Rourke’s personal life has consistently haunted his career. Director Alan Parker has said “working with Mickey is a nightmare. He is very dangerous on the set because you never know what he is going to do”.

Rourke has undergone several plastic surgery procedures and has even admitted to going to the “wrong guy” for the job. The difference in the up-close photos are more than obvious.

Mickey Rourke began boxing professional in 1991 after he felt his acting career was over. The short-lived boxing career resulted in several injuries including a collapsed cheek bone and a broken nose.

Rourke states: “Most of it was to mend the mess of my face because of the boxing, but I went to the wrong guy to put my face back together. I had to have cartilage taken from my ear to rebuild my nose and a couple of operations to scrape out the cartilage because the scar tissue wasn’t healing properly. That was one of the most painful operations.”
