A popular UK Magazine MyPark revealed, Mickey Rourke caused a stir at London Heathrow when he checked in a five-and-a-half stone suitcase packed with shoes.
The 56-year-old actor who was flying first class from London to New York – was forced to repack his bags as the crammed case of footwear was 4kg over the maximum weight limit.
An airline source told Britain’s Sunday Mirror newspaper: “It was really weird and extraordinary to watch. Five-and-a-half stone ? 36kg ? of shoes is one heck of a lot of shoes, especially for a man.
“It’s the sort of thing you would expect from Victoria Beckham, but not of a tough guy like Mickey Rourke.”
Come on now, he’s up for an Oscar, and was just voted “Man of the Year” by Elle. He has to be stylish these days. I wonder who he will be taking as his date to the Oscars? Well we know it won’t be Courtney Love and Evan Rachel Wood. Maybe Carrie Otis? Stay tuned.
