Hollywood Sex Symbol in Sarajevo

Mickey Rourke in between the process of undergoing the knife almost too unrecognizable familiar face of Hollywood sex symbol of 80s had no means to conceal the damage caused to his face, but only to rise above all in rather flirty matter, with addressing the Sarajevo Press Audience. Something that you can check out on official festival site www.sff.ba

Born in New York in 1952, Rourke's teenage years were more aimed towards sports than acting. He took up self-defense training at the Boys Club of Miami, where he learned boxing skills and decided on an amateur career. His boxing career resulted in severe facial injuries which required a number of operations to repair his damaged face. So, Rourke turned to acting, but worked in relative obscurity until he won a Golden Globe Award for his role as Randy "The Ram" Robinson in “The Wrestler (2008)”. He was also nominated for Best Actor, as well. “When I read the story and then met Darren Aronofsky I knew he was going to make me go to some dark places and it would be painful emotionally and physically. But I'm so glad I did it because it is the best work I've done in the best film of my career.”

 

The 56-year-old star suffered a wide range of injuries while in the ring, but admits the cuts and bruises were nothing compared to one little-known side effect of the sport he took on in life. His acting career went off backwards because of it. Once Mickey admitted to Britain's Daily Mail newspaper: "I was out of control and did not think the party was going to end. My mansion in Beverly Hills was like something from 'Halloween III' - Elvis on acid. The neighbors were moving in and out almost monthly."

 

Sarajevo Film Festival brought back his confidence, judging by all those female fans standing in line for his signature. And clearly almost everyone wanted to know about the real life erotic relationship with Kim Basinger and their huge hit from 80s “Nine and half weeks”.We have seen each other again after 20 years; it was warm and welcoming encounter.” I bet many women in audience got really disappointed to hear that such an erotic big screen story was, after all, just a fiction.

Well, let me tell you something: he did had a company in Sarajevo and on Dubrovnik Meeting, on a romantic beach…
