Biography and 15 best films, great actor..Mickey Rourke


Mickey Rourke is an American actor and screenwriter, a former professional boxer. He became famous after starring in Hollywood films.

Mickey Rourke (real name – Philip Andre “Mickey” Rourke Jr.) is a Hollywood actor, boxer, and an outstanding person. He was born on September 16, 1952, in Schenectady. The father of the future celebrity, who was a baseball fan, often called the son in honor of the famous player Mickey Mantle.

Rourke’s childhood was not very happy. When the boy was 6 years old, parents decided to divorce. His mother, taking children with her, moved to Liberty City, Miami district, where most of the population was African-Americans. Soon after the move, Philip’s mother married a retired policeman Eugene Addis. By that time, Philip, being a teenager, did not accept his stepfather with his rules.

Rourke spent a lot of time on the streets of the city. His friends were pimps and drug dealers. Life in such an environment led the young man to the boxing ring.

Philip did not like to study but he was interested in baseball. Also, he attended the acting class of the famous in South Florida teacher Jay Jensen. When Rourke graduated from the school in 1971, he had good mark only in physical education.

Once, Mickey’s friend, who staged Jean Genet’s play “Haute Surveillance” at the university, invited the future Hollywood star to take part in the play. Then the actor decided to play this role but didn’t decide to devote himself to this profession.

Mickey Rourke started his career with physically hard work. Then he spent several years in a criminal environment, selling drugs. He even nearly died during the shooting. Since then, the man decided to leave criminal life, and, taking several hundred dollars, moved to New York. He entered The Lee Strasberg Theatre and Film Institute. Rourke had to work in order to pay for his studies.
