Mickey Rourke Net Worth $10 Million
Mickey Rourke’s father, Philip Andre Rourke Sr., was a body builder, and his mother, Annette Cameron, worked as a police officer. Rourke was fond of boxing from his early years of adolescence. From 1964 to 1973 his boxing record was twenty-seven wins and three losses, which certainly assisted his net worth. Mickey Rourke further expanded his net worth account as an actor, with a supporting role in the film ‘1941’ directed by Steven Spielberg. Also, he appeared in films including ‘Body Heat’ written and directed by Lawrence Kasdan, ‘Diner’ written and directed by Barry Levinson – which has brought him the award of the Best Supporting Actor from The National Society of Film Critics – ‘Rumble Fish’ and ‘The Outsiders’ directed by Francis Ford Coppola. However, the film ‘9½ Weeks’ directed by Adrian Lyne increased Mickey’s net worth much more, as he landed a leading role with famous actress Kim Basinger in the erotic thriller; he was considered to be one of the sexiest actors at the time. He also was starred in the films ‘Barfly’ directed by Barbet Schroeder, ‘Angel Heart’ directed by Alan Parker, ‘Francesco’ directed by Liliana Cavani, ‘Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man’ directed by Simon Wincer, and ‘White Sands’ directed by Roger Donaldson. However, Mickey was a tough personality, and apparently difficult to work with.
In 1991, He decided to check himself to see if he was still able to fight in the ring. This attempt cost him an operation of face plastic surgery, as he was past fighting. In the late 1990’s Mickey got back onto the big screen, and played in the action film ‘Double Team’ directed by Tsui Hark, ‘Another 9½ Weeks’ directed by Anne Goursaud, and ‘Spun’ directed by Jonas Akerlund, but the films were poorly evaluated by critics and audience. Nevertheless, Rourke managed to prove that he was one of the best and added to his net worth after he won several awards for his role of Marv in the thriller ‘Sin City’, which was produced, written and directed by Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez. Later, he landed a very successful role in the Darren Aronofsky directed film ‘The Wrestler’, which has also brought him significant awards including a BAFTA Award, A Golden Globe Award, a nomination of Academy Award and others which increased Mickey Rourke’s net worth too.
Mickey has been married twice: from 1981 to 1989 he was married to Debra Feuer. In 1992 Mickey married Carré Otis, but they divorced in 1998. He has since been dating Terry Farrell, Anastassija Makarenko and Sasha Volkova.
