Mickey Rourke

Good Genes

or Good Docs?

5/30/2009 3:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mickey Rourke rebuilt his damaged career by playing "The Wrestler" ... and he doesn't have the scars to prove it.

Here's the 31-year-old back in 1984 (left) -- and 25 years later, the 56-year-old version earlier this year (right).

He's as good as new.

You people are horrendous, please try desperately to focus on getting a life and quit hating on a good man.

Wasn't he in a major accident and they had to reconstruct his face? That was a long time ago.....took a lot of surgery then.....plus I'm sure there was a lot more ELECTIVE surgery.

TMZ needs to "Neither" and "Both" as categories for these things.

Actually, he's looking better now than he did a few years ago. Yeah, the guy's had plastic surgery for damage from his boxing career and a severe accident. Do an image search - he's looking more like the old Mickey now than he had for several years.

It took me less than a minute to find an article on line with Mickey saying he had to have his nose reconstructed and a crushed cheek bone fixed after boxing....he admits to going to the "wrong doc" to have it done. Give the guy a break. If his face was that badly smashed he didn't have a choice.

Am I the only one here who thinks he looks good for 56?..Also I have to disagree about the bad doc remarks, I think he looks pretty natural...I mean considering it's hollywood..

Definately Docs --- or could it have med students? As to Commenter #7 Add Michael Jackson to the top of the list of the worst butchered.

By the way, Rourke was shown on a video clip a couple of weeks back in an outdoor cafe with a bird on his shoulder. My question is when did he get the tat on the right side of his neck, and why there?
