Mickey Rourke is awesome

February 22nd, 2009 // 90 Comments

Mickey Rourke won Best Male Lead at the Spirit Awards last night for his starring role in The Wrestler. His acceptance speech is a long-winded ball of insanity that includes a tribute to his late Chihuahua Loki and a plea for Hollywood to recognize the greatness of, no shit, Eric Roberts. E! News reports:

“Like I got, he deserves a second chance,” Rourke said of Roberts, who eventually yelled, “Accept your award!” at the man onstage.
“I just got done talking to the Santa Monica Police Department,” Rourke continued. “They gave me a bed to sleep in 10 years ago. And I thank them–I asked them for two pillows, they told me to f–k off. But anyway, thank you, Darren Aronofsky, for believing in me…I’ve told people in the past that directors like [him] come around every 25 years…He is one tough son of a bitch and he don’t like it when I say that ’cause he goes, ‘Mickey, you’ll scare all the other actors away from me.’ But Darren, you know what, if they ain’t got the balls to bring it, then f–k ‘em, you know.”
He then forgets costar Marisa Tomei’s name–but gives her quite the shout-out anyway–and thanks the WWE and Vince McMahon for being so supportive while their film exposed the seedier side of pro wrestling–”like steroids and the cocaine and the bangin’ the girl…in the bathroom.”

You can scope out the whole unedited speech after the jump because words really won’t do it justice. Here’s hoping Mickey Rourke wins an Oscar tonight and bites the ear off whoever cuts short his 20 minute salute to Michael Dudikoff. Adding: If there’s a God in heaven, that person will be John Mayer. *fingers crossed*

    Looks like I’m the first post that isn’t a douche. ANyway, if there’s a god in heaven, He’ll win. It wil be GLORIOUS! The Babble meets the Rabble. ANd I hope he’ll have that poor motherfucker Eric Roberts at the top of it.

    It will be a beautiful thing — pure Hollywood Gold

    douching is passe

  14. Bless my soul, bless God. From head to toe, I’ll bless his holy name!
    O my soul, bless God,
    don’t forget a single blessing!

    3-5 He forgives your sins–every one.
    He heals your diseases–every one.
    He redeems you from hell–saves your life!
    He crowns you with love and mercy–a paradise crown.
    He wraps you in goodness–beauty eternal.
    He renews your youth–you’re always young in his presence.

    6-18 God makes everything come out right;
    he puts victims back on their feet.
    He showed Moses how he went about his work,
    opened up his plans to all Israel.
    God is sheer mercy and grace;
    not easily angered, he’s rich in love.
    He doesn’t endlessly nag and scold,
    nor hold grudges forever.
    He doesn’t treat us as our sins deserve,
    nor pay us back in full for our wrongs.
    As high as heaven is over the earth,
    so strong is his love to those who fear him.
    And as far as sunrise is from sunset,
    he has separated us from our sins.
    As parents feel for their children,
    God feels for those who fear him.
    He knows us inside and out,
    keeps in mind that we’re made of mud.
    Men and women don’t live very long;
    like wildflowers they spring up and blossom,
    But a storm snuffs them out just as quickly,
    leaving nothing to show they were here.
    God’s love, though, is ever and always,
    eternally present to all who fear him,
    Making everything right for them and their children
    as they follow his Covenant ways
    and remember to do whatever he said.

    19-22 God has set his throne in heaven;
    he rules over us all. He’s the King!
    So bless God, you angels,
    ready and able to fly at his bidding,
    quick to hear and do what he says.
    Bless God, all you armies of angels,
    alert to respond to whatever he wills.
    Bless God, all creatures, wherever you are–
    everything and everyone made by God.
    And you, O my soul, bless God!

  22. Borat

    Mickey Rourke is funny like town drunk.

    What is up with his fat fingers? Is this side effects of steroids or Human Growth Hormone?

    Fat freaky finger man with dead dog win Oscar tonight. Hope he has another good speech left.

    #27 It’s “tourette’s” . Turrets syndrome is what I have – that’s where I have an uncontrollable urge to take a Howitzer to mimi, CandyO and Bibleguy.

    Amazing how he can remember Eric Roberts (who graduated from the School of Look Ma I’m Acting) back from when they costarred in The Pope Of Greenwich Village but can’t manage to retain Marisa Tomei’s. Hell, all she did was help make The Wrestler his once-in-a-lifetime comeback vehicle, huh? Eric Roberts was notorious for wearing a banana hammock thong on screen every chance he got,, but I’m sure that has nothing to do with it.

    Ok everydouche, let’s all take our meds. I know I know mommy raised some of us like babies. And then we grow up and find that noone really cares about us like Mommy did. Hell you could end up in a war and get a limb blown off. Or mugged in the street or raped. Or lose your job or your home.
    So worrying about who says what on a celebrity gossip column indicates there are indeed some fragile minds out there.
    If there is something or someplace that makes you unhappy…um…why are you going back there? Might I suggest finding something else to do?
    Noone (I hope) here is a real person right? Just characters. It’s called humor.
    If you don’t like chewing acid-laden excrement maybe Mommy doesn’t want you to put it in your mouth? (Thank God humans don’t live very long imagine how crazy they would become after a couple centuries!)

  41. Not CandyO

    Take your medicine, asshole!

  42. HalifaxDavid

    This man, is the man ! Mickey Rourke makes every other actor in hollywood look like a total douche…I would love to see what Rourke would do if he was on the move set with C. Bale when he lost it, Mickey would have probably knocked his poncy fucking arse to the ground.

  43. girrrrrl

    Racist misogynist slime is NOT humor!

  44. Synch G

    Someone needs to slap the Superficial writer in the mouth with a fish!

  45. HalifaxDavid

    ME FIRST!

  46. rushisamaroon

    Let me beat him to death with a baby seal!

  47. justifiable

    I guess I’m just another idiot with an opinion.

  48. justifiable

    #47 No, you’re a troll idiot with an opinion – and no name of your own. No, wait. Mommy DID call you The Abortion That Lived, didn;t she?

  49. justifiable

    Why am I talking to myself?

  50. A

    Boy, it seems like all these media attention and public admiration has gone straight to Mickey Rourke’s head, again, BIG TIME. Couple of months before he started winning awards, Mickey seem more humble and shy, now he has turn to his perverted, asshole, old self again. Old dogs can’t learn new tricks and Mickey Rourke cant seem to learn how to stop being a super freak. He seems like he will most likely going to screw up things again in not time, even if he has that Oscar.
