Mickey Rourke was one of the top male leads of the 1980s – he weas known for his boyish good looks and smooth moves with the ladies. He effectuated a severe career change as he abandonned acting for professional boxing, with the results now apparent on his face. One thing is for sure; Mickey Rourke talks the talk AND walks the walk! Unfortunately, the actor has clearly made the decision not to quit smoking cigarettes, with the devastating long term effects that decision will have.
Puffing on those things does not make you look cool, Mickey. They make you look like a moron. Just like playing chicken with a train: people looking at you won’t admire your bravery, they’ll think – and rightly so – that you’re being an idiot.
