Mickey Rourke: His Great Tribute


I watched most of the Academy Awards last night, and I was so moved by Mickey Rourke. I always thought he was a bit strange, but my impressions of him have changed so much this past year. His love for his pet chihuahua Loki is so endearing, and you can see the pain he was feeling last night as he talked about his dog Loki and how she past away just days ago.

In rememberance, he wore a necklace with Loki on it. The talk of the Oscars are usually all about the glamour and glitz and how everyone is dressed in their best, and who they are wearing. How wonderful of Mickey to take that opportunity to pay tribute to his loving dog.

Here you can check out the video of Rourke's interview with ET about his dog Loki.

A few weeks ago, he also thanked his dogs in his Golden Globe acceptance speech. I thought that was so sweet too.

I haven't seen the little necklace I only heard that he was critisized because of his neglected outfit ! I didn't know about the dog either. That's really touching !

This is very touching~!
I seen he got interview at the red carpet, he was almost crying~!
I am purring for his baby woffie~!

Goldie, Shade and Banshee said...

That really is sweet!
The PM saw "The Wrestler" and was amazed at how well he acted. Boxing really has screwed up his face but he is a great actor!

The PM still thinks about his "9 1/2 Weeks" time.

mickey rourke was the only reason i watched the academy awards. he was absolutely terrific in the wrestler (and i hadn't been that big of fan before). and then his tribute to loki sealed the deal for me. the guy is a real sweetheart despite his demons.

We felt bad for Mr. Rourke that his woofie went to the Bridge. It was nice of him to pay tribute to Loki.

I thought that was very sweet, too. He was obviously very devoted to his special buddy Loki. It was so touching when he said that she left him when she knew he would be okay. Didn't he say something about having her little tuxedo with him?

That's a nice story. I missed that one, so thanks for posting about it.

Joe Stains said...

We certainly think he is a much cooler guy now that we have heard about how much he loved his dog.

The Cat Realm said...

We loved him for the fact that when he won the Golden Globe in his acceptance speech he thanked his dogs!!!!
