Mickey Rourke one of my favorite Virgo actors, is basking in the media glow. In Paris this week, he attended the premiere of the Wrestler. In a recent interview, Mickey revealed he has lived on and off in Paris and London for the last twenty years.
Taking advantage of his new Hollywood status, Rourke has bagged a new acting gig. He is set to star in “St. Vincent” as a hit man who returns to New York to complete a botched hit. Masquerading as a priest, he finds himself hearing the confession of the man he is targeting. Rourke is also scheduled to star in Iron Man as Whiplash, also he has several other movies slated over the next two years.
On the Oscar front, Rourke and Penn have decided to bury the hatchet, and were seen together in Los Angeles after Rourke apologized to Penn, the New York Post reported. Earlier Rourke had reportedly sent some depreciating text messages to Hollywood insiders. The message read, “I didn’t buy his performance at all. Thought he did an average job of pretending like he was gay besides he’s one of the most homophobic people I know.” It looks like a new down to earth and humble Rourke has emerged.
If you haven’t seen the Wrestler yet, check it out. It’s a real tear jerker.
