This side by side of long time move star Mickey Rourke is truly telling. The young man on the left who was the object of many women’s desire in the 80’s and 90’s has recently revived his career, but not his looks. Props to Rourke on the career resurrection, but better luck next time on the image resurrection.
This type of transfiguration should be a lesson learned for many of those who are considering plastic surgery. The quality of the doctors who typically perform plastic surgery on the stars in Hollywood is better than your average doctor. When Mickey went in for surgery to have a few things done to improve his looks, he came out looking like a totally different person. Now instead of playing the role of a handsome and desirable man, he tends to land roles as a movie villain. He’s done half the work already for the makeup crew, as he already has the scary face built right in every morning.
Not letting his looks deter the audience from his acting abilities, Mickey Rourke has wowed fans recently in films such as “Iron Man 2″ and “The Wrestler.” His emotional roller coaster in “The Wrestler” really revived the career that some thought was destroyed by his plastic surgery disasters. He not only reinvented himself, but transformed himself too.
