To say Mickey Rourke is “our kind of guy” is like saying The Godfather was a good flick: It just doesn’t do the man justice. Much of his body of work reads like The Man Guide’s list of the best dude films of all time: Diner, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Year of the Dragon, Nine 1/2 Weeks, Bar Fly, Sin City, The Wrestler, Iron Man 2, The Expendables, and Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
Beyond his acting chops, we love that he’s lived life on his own terms and either dated or married the hottest women in Hollywood. He took a break from acting to try boxing – not yoga or pilates. The guy’s definitely a man’s man and we respect him for it.
