This slideshow features some handsome photos of a young Mickey Rourke. Born Phillip Andre Rourke on September 16, 1962, Rourke rose to stardom with a successful professional boxing career, intertwined with his lucrative dramatic acting career. In the 80s, he starred in films such as Diner, Rumble Fish, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Barfly, and Angel Heart, to critical acclaim. He took a brief break from acting to pursue professional boxing in 1991. He retired from boxing three years later, and switched back to acting again.

He was nominated for multiple awards for his performance, including awards from The Chicago Film Critics Association, the Irish Film and Television Awards, and the Online Film Critics Society. In 2009, he received a Golden Globe award, a BAFTA award, and an Academy Award nomination for his starring role in The Wrestler. He also starred as the main villain in Iron Man 2.
