It takes a lot of money to look this good, but Mickey Rourke still has a few dollars to spare for the homeless. Hundreds of 'em!

Nice gesture on his part. Maybe he found out that fame can be fleeting.

For all of you applauding his generosity, what exactly is it that you think the homeless man will spend the money on? A new suit so he can get a job? A hotel room so he can have a nice shower and sleep in a warm comfortable bed? Maybe you think he'll spend it on his other homeless buddies by taking them all out for a hot meal? Or maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaybe, he's going to go get high. Hmmmmmmmmm, what is the most likely?

He just enabled this guy to run out a get a high.

If I was rich, I would do stuff like this all of the time. Build up my karmic balance. But I'm not, so I don't. :(

Tmz, what do you have against Mickey? Give the guy a break, he seems like he is a genuinely nice guy. At least he actually has a ton of talent and is not just another pretty face.
I am sure he dislikes what the surgeons did to his face enough on his own without heartless a-holes like you commenting on it all the time, that's just cruel ya know!

Don't assume #7, you know what they say about assumptions. Not every homeless person does drugs! : )

I'll have to agree with #7 here. I live in NY and I'm fairly certain that I could count the number of times on one hand that i've ever seen a homeless person sober. That $100 probably went to drugs, a bit of 'walking around booze' and maybe some spare change left over that he tucked into his socks.

Mickey never did much for me. I haven't even seen The Wrestler. But I love him. He seems like such a genuine person. The way he talked about Loki his dog and giving that homeless man in a wheelchair $100, He rocks.
