Mickey Rourke Used Dead Pets for His "Iron Man 2" Scenes

Posted: April 13th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Mickey Rourke Used Dead Pets for His "Iron Man 2" ScenesSubmit Comment
Right before the Oscars last year, one of Mickey Rourke's four chihuahuas died. The actor ended up wearing a photo locket of Loki-the-dog around his neck during the awards show and mentioned that if Loki would have lived, he would have brought it with him.

Apparently the deaths of his pets hit Rourke so hard that he can't help but start crying when reminded of them. In fact, he used this to evoke emotion during the filming of some of his "Iron Man 2" scenes, much to the surprise of his co-stars.

"He would have someone holding pictures of recently deceased pets off camera to make him feel sad or whatever for a scene," said Robert Downey Jr. "It was all serious stuff. Iíve never seen anything like it."

I respect Rourke, he was down and out and picked himself up. Pretty similar to RDJ's story, minus the copious amounts of cocaine and smack.

That title was kind of misleading.

My money is on him snorting the ashes when he had it cremated.

Love that he did that. By the way, why are we discussing this now? RDJ mentioned this like 3 weeks ago on Jimmy kimmel.

Great for the acting, not so much for the tough guy image.

Chihuahuas? Who are you, Sharon Osbourne? Next time get a real dog Mick!

Mickey did you love your pets or did you LOVE your pets?

I remember reading that Rourke, while filming scenes with DeNiro in Angelheart, held an ice-cube in his hand to get the "shiver up your spine" feeling of the devil.

Chihuahuas... great. f*cking cats that bark!

I'll take you dog shopping next time Mick (and no... you c*nt bring Loslag home).

@Ricky - snorting ashes... lol... priceless!

I thought this story was going to be about Rouke whipping the sh*t out of dead dogs.

That dog in the picture looks like an *sshole. I would pinch the hell out of him. RIP Loki

@rocket - or swinging dogs around by their hind legs to destroy Iron Man.

For someone who seems like a bad ass his whiny p*ssy factor just multiplied 10 fold.

Goes to show you that Rourke may be quite strange looking, but there is still talent there after all these years. Give this man an Oscar ALREADY!

Just the very idea of Mickey Rourke's villain in Iron Man 2 having a weapon that shoots dead pets at the good guy makes me all giddy...
