Mickey Rourke Steals The Show At The Immortals Premiere

Actor Mickey Rourke knows a thing or two about being the center of attention and he put that knowledge to good work while working the red carpet at the Los Angeles premiere of The Immortals.

Rourke, who was recently graced with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, posed with his girlfriend Anastassija Makarenko before sauntering along to steal the spotlight.

He wore black cat-eyed sunglasses with a black three-piece suit, pink dress shirt and matching pink silk tie because everyone knows a real man wears pink.

Additionally, actresses Isabel Lucas and Freida Pinto wowed in white while posing for photos.  Luckily, they opted not to wear pink and have Rourke steal the spotlight from them.

Mickey Rourke Celebrates Career Achievements With Hand & Footprint Ceremony At Grauman’s Chinese Theater

Academy award nominated and Golden Globe winning actor Mickey Rourke had another opportunnity to celebrate his illustrious career, as his achievements were the highlight of his hand and footprint ceremony at Grauman’s Chinese Theater.

This made Rourke the 254th person to have their work and career celebrated in cement near the famous Hollywood theater, solidifying him with famed contemporaries like Marilyn Monroe, Betty Grable, Jennifer Anison & Tom Cruise.

Rourke is a heavy hitter, beginning his career in the late ’70s and blossomed into a leading man in the 1980s with films like 9 1/2 Weeks, but spent the ’90s pursing a career as a boxer, taking small supporting roles at the same time.

However, it was the Darren Aronofsky’s 2008 film The Wrestler that solidified his career and comeback.  Rourke continues to choose roles that have a level of emotional depth and tragedy, which allow him to display his range and talents as an actor.

While signing his hand & footprints Rourke posed like a proud peacock, displaying the star quality that garnished him success to begin with.

Is Mickey Rourke Engaged?!

His is one of the biggest comeback stories of the new millennium!

After getting the Oscar nod and earning scores of new fans, it’s now being reported that Mickey Rourke is engaged to Elena Kuletskaya. Rumor has it that the couple will get married in Moscow this April, after dating for just a couple of months. Apparently, Mickey popped the question during a romantic dinner, and has been studying Russian in order to learn Elena’s native tongue.

It must be love if he’s willing to learn a whole new language! Congrats to the happy couple — let us know if you need a wedding photographer!

Snaps from the UK Premiere of Inglorious Basterds

Last night was the UK premiere of Inglorious Basterds, and it was kind of surprising to see who was there and who wasn’t there. Let’s do a quick roll call, shall we?

Rihanna? There (and looking totally fabulous)!

Quentin Tarantino? There!

Diane Kruger? There!

Mickey Rourke? There!

Brad Pitt, who is the star of the film? …Bueller? …Bueller?

Where was Brad?!

Mickey Rourke at the Sunset Marquis

Mickey Rourke was at the Sunset Marquis Hotel in West Hollywood yesterday (these pics were taken as he was leaving). I see that he’s taken a page out of David Hasselhoff’s style book by wearing the blue Hush Puppies, but what’s up with the patterned vest over the patterned shirt? It’s a bit much.

Dig the silver hair, though!

Pics from the Premiere of The Informers

Last night, Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger hit up the premiere of The Informers at the Arclight Hollywood. It’s weird, because I totally just read that book last month — I’m a pretty big Bret Easton Ellis fan. Still, I didn’t know it was being made into a movie (or if I did, I forgot). So, I did a little Wiki search and this is what I found:

  • The movie stars Brad Renfro. It’s the last movie he made before he passed away.
  • Ashley Olsen was originally cast in the film, but was replaced by Amber Christie
  • The book’s vampire subplot is nowhere to be found in the movie
  • Chris Isaak IS Les Price!!! I friggin’ LOVE me some Chris Isaak!

As I’m writing this post, I’m singing the Informer song from the 90s. You know, the lickey boom boom down one. I think I’ve been watching too many of those VH1 top 40 countdown shows.

Mickey Rourke at Wrestlemania

Array Please link to www.mavrixonline.com

Mickey Rourke made a special guest appareance at Wrestlemania in Houston last night, posing in the ring with Ric Flair and Chris Jericho. I keep wanting to type it out Jherico, like Jheri Curl, but apparently that isn’t the right way to spell it.

After Mickey got robbed at the Oscars this year (yeah, I said it), I’ve decided that I’m really fond of the guy. I hope he gets lots of decent acting jobs in the future, because he’s earned them with his amazing comeback. A few years ago he was practically nothing, and now he’s a household name again. I dig his underdog story.

And I can’t get enough of his outfit. The Crocodile Dundee goes semi-formal in the swamp look is where it’s at. The vest just puts everything over the top for me, and the bare midriff is hitting me like a bullet train full of molten style. Sexy.

Mickey Rourke at Fashion Week

Mickey Rourke attended the Domenico Vacca Show during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in NYC yesterday. Somehow, he doesn’t exactly strike me as the fashionista type.

In other news, it’s being reported that Mickey’s beloved dog, Loki, passed away yesterday at the age of 18 (human) years old. When Mickey won the Golden Globe for his role in The Wrestler, he made a point to thank his dog in his speech. Such a shame!

Will Mickey Rourke Be a Real-Life Wrestler?

Mickey Rourke, who has recently been nominated for an Academy Award for his role in The Wrestler, may hit the real-life wrestling ring!

According to the reports, Rourke confirmed on the red carpet at the SAG Awards that he was contacted by WWE Chairman Vince McMahon who asked him to appear at the 25th Anniversary of WrestleMania in Houston, TX. He agreed, suggesting he’ll face Chris Jericho in a match and issed a warning, saying:

“Chris Jericho, you better get in shape. Because I’m coming after your ass.”

I can’t wait!

Evan Rachel Wood attended the premiere of The Wrestler in Beverly Hills last night, and all I have to say is: damn. I didn’t think it was possible for people to be that white, but she seems to pull it off. I didn’t realize day-glo came in a white color.

You know who else was there? Mickey Rourke. Wonder how long it’ll take the two of them to officially come out as a couple? I give it another two months.

Mickey Rourke Needs to Get His Hand Out of His Pants

Seriously, who walks down the red carpet with a hand down their pants? I honestly can’t believe what I’m looking at. Did nobody tell him to stop? Other than that, Mickey Rourke is looking like the type of guy I wouldn’t mind making out with. Don’t get me wrong, I certainly wouldn’t tell anyone about it afterward, but I’d still do it. It must be the red jacket.

Somebody also needs to tell Evan Rachel Wood to stop trying to out-diva Dita Von Teese. It’s not happening, though I almost fell for it for a second.

Mickey Rourke leads a rally outside Hot Dog Puppies in South Beach, Fl. The actor was protesting the pet store whom he alleges are selling sick puppies. Rourke reportedly bought a puppy for his friend John “JP” Parlavecchio from the store at Christmas, unfortunately, “Chich” soon fell ill just a few days after Parlavecchio received him. The dog had come down with a common airborne virus that puppies sometimes get called Parvo, which eventually led to the dog’s death. 2/1/07
