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*

    No one wants to talk about Mickey Rourke though so I’ll just shut-up!

    Wait a mintue… I’m here all by myself!

    Mommy!

  2. God Loves Mickey Rourke.

    I’m Mickey Rourke and Jesus saved me from myself.

    He can save you too!

    Don’t let anybody punch you in the head ok?

    B Safe!

    You know, “The Pope of Greenwich Village” is a pretty good movie. Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts show a lot of talent in it but you can totally tell they’re just not going to have these great careers later on.

  5. We NEED Mickey Rourke to win best male lead. First, because he basically admitted to shooting roids during the shooting of The Wrestler where a costar this week – the guy who played the steroids dealer – led police on a chase and plowed thru 5 cop and DEA cars.

    Rourke brings authenticity to his role cuz he lived it baby. Screw this Batman dead star wins BS. Ledger was good and all but cmon now – he just playeda hero in a thriller. Nothing artistic there.

    PS: Win it and give us a long rambling speech of insanity!

  11. azalea

    Hey…. I’m pissed! 60. azalea is not me!

    I’m a God fearing Lord loving born again Christian!

  12. Borat

    Sean Penn is faggot. Mickey Rourke was robbed.

  13. Borat

    But praise the Lord anyway!

    I was so rooting for Mickey Rourke..there is just some thing about him that is strangely intriguing in a somewhat pathetic way…as for fat fingers, those are the hands of a real man, not some pencil pusher who sits at his computer all day, writing retarded comments on here and trying to be the first to comment…..Im sure his women love fat fingers, they are good for more things then what u’s use yours for :P

  15. miller

    He is so old but still keeping hooking up on ^^ W e a l t h y S i n g l e . N e t^^ with beautiful young ladies, is he very rich?

  16. jordan

    he smells like piss i bet.

  17. 64. MissHillbilly idiot

    You just insulted every asshole who posts on this website including Fish.

    “not some pencil pusher who sits at his computer all day, writing retarded comments on here and trying to be the first to comment.”

  18. jordan

    Baptize the bastard. How about the Jordan?

  19. I’m getting my second wind!

  20. Someone on the site is advertising for an online redemption club ” W e L o v e J e s u s . N e t “, I have just read the news on the soul seeking club that “W e L o v e J e s u s . N e t ” advertisers you need to stop! This is a controvercial site for high quality athesists!!

  21. We could have used some crazy at the Oscars.

    Actually Eric Roberts has surprised me a few times lately (Mob Boss in Dark Knight, etc.). Maybe his best roles, or his only watchable roles for that matter, are still ahead of him. Now where’s Frank Stallone?

    I should watch PI sometime. I own two copies now. It sounds interesting. (Aranofsky)

    Mickey Rourke looks like a stretched out hairy ball sack. Dude is a complete wanker. WTF is he doing with his hand down his pants FFS. I’m going to kick him in the nuts if I ever encounter him. All those B-grade celebretards who actually laughed at his lame-ass “jokes” (insults) are just as bad, too. The world is indeed a tragic place when a bag of douche such as Mickey Rourke is admired.

  29. Mickey Rourke's gay lover

    I’m willing to bet that he smells like a combination of cigars, Chihuahua piss and used condoms.

    How nice. He is so handsome, and I like him very much, I have seen him on
    _____Millionaire Romances com_____, I also met a lot of wealthy singles and celebs here. I am so lucky.

    The Oscars are garbage. The products are usually immoral, the hosts America-hating jerks, and the winners are either Affirmative Action or political picks. Ergo Penn over Rourke so he could bash the majority of California voters.

  33. Micky is the man! Finally a speech that isn’t all thank yous.

  34. Tam Burlaine

    No 64 Miss Hillbilly – right with you. It’s wrong, I know, but I’m a big fan of what-the-fuck? experiences and I would ride him like a rocket ship. See that Loki pendant knock-knock-knocking against his chest. Yeah.

  35. Fluffy Butt

    Please make hime go away. His second 15 minutes is up.

    That is one F*CKED UP looking guy!
    He needs to be put down like a dog whose owner kicked him out of the car on the freeway at 75mph!

  37. Black Dalia

    Those you speak too badly about Mickey Rourke are just conservative f******* and freaks and you need to be isolated from the rest of the world cause you hate the world!Let the man have a good time!Mickey was an idol on 80′s ,he is a very capable incradable handsome actor that many of you and of course too many actors are jealous(as hell!)He was the best actor back then that all people had the lust and desire to watch in movies and you know it!So cut the crap and stop behave like nerds full of complex!He is as human as you are (lying bastards)and probably even more!

    I love idiots like you who consider acting in front of a camera to be “Real Man’s Work”. By the way he has Clubbed Fingers, which is a well known sign of DISEASE, not hard work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clubbed_fingers

  39. Pavlo

    In medicine, clubbing, finger clubbing, or digital clubbing is a deformity of the fingers and fingernails that is associated with a number of diseases, mostly of the heart and lungs.

  40. The Oscars are garbage. Products are often immoral, America welcomes shock and hate, and the winners are either positive or peaks policy. Ergo more Rourke Penn, so he can bash the majority of California voters.
