Mickey Rourke -- Unrecognizable ... In a Good Way!

What's made the bigger comeback ... Mickey Rourke's career or his face?

The "Sin City" star was out Thursday afternoon in L.A. visiting his tailor, but it's his face that seems a good fit ... after several years of looking a few sizes too small.

Perhaps like a chocolate soufflé, Rourke's face just needed some time to set.

Seriously ... an amazing turnaround. He looks great.
