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.

1 I had to go back to boxing because I was self-destructing. I had no respect for myself being an actor. So I went back to a profession which really humbled me.
2 I didn"t really care for the script, but I wanted to work with Darren (Aronofsky) and I kind of thought that whoever wrote the script hadn"t spent as much time as I had around these kind of people and he wouldn"t have spoken the way the dude was speaking in the screenplay. And so Darren let me rewrite all my part and he put the periods in and crossed the t"s. So once we made that change I was OK with it.
3 I waited 10 years for her to come back... I won"t compromise. Carre was thunder and lightning. If I can"t have thunder and lighting then I won"t have anything. It"ll be a one-night stand here and there, but I"m not going to compromise. I can"t.
4I met Warren Beatty one time and I thought ... "What a creepy puke ass." <1994 interview>
5Alec Baldwin, Daniel Day-Lewis, Kevin Costner ... you put me in a room with any of these actors, I"ll eat their asshole. (1994 interview)
6 Hollywood hung him by his heels and that little prick Robert Downey? He"s gotten like a million chances. And you know, the rumors have taken their toll on him. He needs to humble himself like I"ve had to do. He needs to make a film less than 10 million and show them he can do that. I"d work for scale for him.
7People say, "You"re so aggressive, you"re so competitive." So what? What the f**k is wrong with that? I"ll be less aggressive and competitive when they put me in the ground, OK?
8 She is the best young actress I"ve ever worked with. I don"t know if a lot of her films have showcased her acting ability more than, say, being action oriented, but she really stepped up to the plate with this one and was very consistent and professional, beyond her years. At 23, I couldn"t do half of what she"s doing.
9(1987 Playboy Interview) Success has changed me in one way, exposed me to a certain level of independence-a kind of selfishness that I"m ashamed of. I got ants in my pants. But the fact is, when I"m working with people I want to, on a project that I respect, I really do love acting. And that"s all that matters. It"s almost as good as catching somebody with a good left hook.
10The first act of my life was crazy, but I"ve learned from it. If you"ve got the guts and the desire and the talent, the first time around is easy. The second time around, it"s murder. How many guys make it round the second bend?
11I"m looking for an English wife. I"m looking for a house over here (in England). I need a boxing ring though and a full-sized gym. London"s like my second home.
12Monogamy? I can"t wait. I don"t practice it, because I haven"t met the one I"d practice it with, but I believe in it absolutely. I"d join that club in a heartbeat.
13 Stallone, when I was flat broke and I could hardly pay for a bowl of spaghetti in a restaurant, gave me a couple of weeks on Get Carter (2000), and that paid my f***in" rent for eight months.
14 I got the most touching letters and communiques from everywhere. From Emma Thompson, who I"ve never met, to Al Pacino, Robert Duvall, and Jon Voight. I got a letter from Kim Basinger, who I hadn"t heard from in 20 years. I just thought, "Wow." I mean, for me, I don"t think I could"ve had a better compliment than a few words from Al Pacino.
15 I didn"t think I was gonna win, because of Proposition 8 and the whole gay marriage thing that was going on in California. But it wasn"t just that. Sean did a hell of a job with his character.
16 Eric Roberts is probably the best actor I ever worked with, and I don"t know why in the last 15 years, ain"t nobody give him a chance to show his s*** again, because whatever he did 15, 20 years ago should be forgiven, and I"m g**d*** serious about that. Eric Roberts is the f***in" man. And, like I got, he deserves a second chance. And I wish there would be one g**d*** filmmaker in this room that would let him fly because the man, he is something else.
17Hollywood is a very unforgiving place.
18 It was physically brutal. I had to do seven and a half months of extensive weightlifting, and eating six or seven meals a day, to put on 27 pounds of muscle.
19 In the end, the Oscar should be about the acting. But there is a lot of grey, a lot of politics involved and a lot of interests. I did all I could do. Whatever happens, happens. I want to keep moving forward. There are always things that happen as the years go by, but I can"t complain. I"m still standing.
20My grandmother always said: "God has a plan for all of us." I should have went along with his, not mine, my plan sucked!
21I read a lot of biographies from Montgomery Clift to Errol Flynn. And it"s the same thing, where you take people who are tremendously famous, and over time the power or money doesn"t fill the gaps, and the emptiness that comes along with the ride.
22I wasn"t in the <19>90s, I was sitting on the bench.
23 He was this Jewish kinda dude who couldn"t work on Fridays. And I couldn"t wait for that day to come along.
24As long as I can work with people I"m excited about working with, it will be okay. I just can"t work for the paycheck.
25 I was shaking. I went back in the bedroom and I put my arms around him and said, "Hey, bro. I know how painful it is." I told him how much I loved him and everything. And I said, "If you gotta go somewhere right now," I said, "you go ahead and go there and I"ll meet you there later on sometime." I said, "But if you gotta go now, that"s okay, "cause I"ll be okay, you understand?" And he took these weird kind of breaths and died in my arms.
26My mother gave me away to somebody else-who abused my brother and me for years. And if it goes on for years and years, you"re better to take that person outside and put a bullet in the back of their head. Because you don"t get over it. You don"t get over the Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) that goes on for a decade-plus.
27 The bravest person I ever met in my life was my brother. And I miss him terribly. I wonder where he is right now. I think about that a lot. I think about if I"m gonna see him again. I think about if he"s with me ... I think of him every night. He suffered. He didn"t want to go.
28Cate Blanchett is an actress. Paris Hilton is not.
29If I wasn"t Catholic, I probably would have blown my brains out.
30 I"ll never lose it all again. It was too much hard work to get it back and too lonely and too dark. I"ve worked too hard for it. It would be too hard to take.
31 The old me wasn"t accountable or responsible for anything. There were no rules, and I didn"t fear any consequences or repercussions of any kind. I don"t want to go back to that dark place because this is my last chance, and I"m not going to get another.
32 She"s a real lady.
33 He went on to pay us like highest compliments that we could wish for. And actually he got a little emotional about it. And it was kind of like, it was hard holding this guy and hearing him and talking back to him and understanding where he"s been-the journey that he"s been on and all the others that were like him. Because when your time has come and gone and that"s the only thing you know, you can"t go and be a goddamn busboy somewhere. You just can"t do it. And the options aren"t a lot. And it"s not very pretty.
34I remember looking at myself in the mirror and thinking: look at what happened to you. I had blown everything, you know? I lost my credibility, my marriage, my money, my soul. I said to myself, you"ve got to change. And I realized that the acting was the only thing I had left.
35 I remember doing the scenes with William Hurt, who was a pretty big movie star at the time. And I"m thinking: "Well, if that"s a movie star, I"m not going to have no problem in this town." So, you know, the attitude. It was there from the start.
36 I got hurt more in the three months of wrestling than I did in 16 years of boxing.
37 I expect to be back at the Oscars in about two years time. I expect my script "Wild Horses" to be picked up soon, I"ll star in it, and then win the Oscar.
38 She"s a hell of a talent and was very brave for taking her clothes off all the time. I enjoyed looking at her!
39 It"s bittersweet. I said to myself I"d rather have Loki another two years than an Oscar and I told her that.
40 The director was kind of an a**hole, but the project was very interesting. "Charles Bukowski" was on the set. I liked Charlie. Charlie was cool with me. I was never a Bukowski fanatic or anything. I did enjoy reading a few of his books, but, you know, it wasn"t like he was Tennessee Williams to me.
41 I think that movie is the best work I"ve done for 15 years.
42I"m Irish and French.
43 We were watching a soccer game one time during the World Cup, and Italy and Ireland were playing. I said, "John"-because he, you know, liked to gamble-I said, "I"ll take Ireland." And Italy was favored up the ass, right? But Ireland ended up winning the f**king game. And before that I said to John, "What do you want to bet? Ten grand? Whatever? Whatever you want to do." He says, "No, no. I"m never going to take your money. Let"s bet watches." Right? I"ll tell you something. His friends came over three weeks later and brought me the most beautiful f**king watch I"ve ever seen. Autographed, "To Mick, All the best. JG."
44 I learned a lot watching Tony in action. I mean, here"s a guy who"s been one of the great actors for years and he"s still got the enthusiasm of a kid. He keeps trying to sustain a higher and higher level. You can"t tell from looking at him, but try moving him. The guy"s strong, he"s built like a fire hydrant.
45 When I read the story and then met Darren Aronofsky I knew he was going to make me go to some dark places and it would be painful emotionally and physically. But I"m so glad I did it because it is the best work I"ve done in the best film of my career.
46 My mansion in Beverly Hills was like something from Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982) - Elvis on acid. The neighbors were moving in and out almost monthly.
47 Loki is deeply missed but with me in spirit. I feel very blessed that she fell asleep peacefully in my arms.
48 In six months I went from 195 pounds to 230. This was solid muscle. I hired a trainer from the Israeli army, and he was very strict. We trained twice a day with heavy weights, and my eating habits became super-high protein, low carbs, and, let"s say, a lot of vitamins.
49 I have a lot of respect for a sport I was ignorant about. I take my hat off to those guys, I really do.
50 It was a sport I looked down on as fake and theatrical. My half brothers used to go and watch it all the time and think it was real, but I couldn"t stand the f**king sport. I had a terrible disdain for it.
51Actors should shut up about politics, because they tend to be ill-informed finger-pointers who just cozy up to some flavor-of-the-month liberal, you know?
52 I want to thank my publicist, Paula Woods, for having the hardest job in showbiz: telling me ... what to eat, how to dress, what to f***.
53 I was bouncing at a transvestite nightclub... and back then all the transvestites were on this sh*t called Angel Dust, so you"d hit them over the head with a baseball bat but they"d keep on coming.
54 I called up a guy who used to hang with me and asked where I might get me some construction work. He brushed me off and said he didn"t have time for my sh*t.
55Hollywood"s a town built on envy.
56I"ll never be mellow, OK? I"d rather be dead than mellow. You might as well take me out the back and shoot me in the back of the head before I"m going to be mellow.
57 It"s voted for by people from the movie business and in the past I"ve hacked them all off. I was good at that. It came easy to me. I stupidly said acting wasn"t a job for a real man. I threatened producers, raged at directors, forgot my agent"s name. I really burned my bridges. And a lot of people have long memories.
58I really only want to work with material that has integrity, and with actors and directors that I respect. You know, people like Tony Scott, Robert Rodriguez, Quentin Tarantino-there"s a shortlist.
59 I couldn"t stand making that movie. I hated every second of it.
60I heard someone say Hollywood"s a celebration of mediocrity, which rings pretty true to me.
61 I didn"t think I"d come back to this level ever again. I hoped I would but I thought too much time had gone by.
62You know the song "I Fought the Law and the Law Won"? Well, I fought the system and it kicked the living shit out of me!
63 Thought he did an average pretend acting like he was gay. Besides, he"s one of the most homophobic people I know.
64For 12 years I was alone, I had lost everything. The three people closest to me-my brother, my grandmother and my ex-wife-were no longer there. I had no real friends. I saw a few girls, Russian strippers mostly, but I wasn"t looking for a girlfriend. My wife"s name was tattooed on my arm. She was the love of my life.
65Who do I share the good things happening to me with? My dogs, I guess.
66 I was fighting guys 15 years younger than me. . . . But I won 10 of 12 fights and had two draws.
67 If I was Nicole Kidman, I wouldn"t want to work with me, either. She"d have to stand up to the plate and get exposed. She wouldn"t have known what hit her. I was flat broke at the time. In the Cut (2003) would have been my first big part in a comeback. But it was my fault to put myself in a position where someone like her could dictate whether I worked or not.
68I always thought I"d accomplish something special. Like robbing a bank.
69 It was the most fun I"ve ever had on a movie. It was one of the happiest times in my life. I was living in New York, and I really enjoyed acting at the time. Also, it"s funny because that was also the time when I went downhill.
70(on his film Spun (2002)) I didn"t care for the material and I wasn"t real interested in the cast. But two years ago I put myself in the hands of an agent, David Unger at ICM, and he said, "Do the movie." So I did.
71 I didn"t have a childhood, really, because I worked my whole life and . . . other reasons. So when I had some success, I went ballistic. That was my childhood, and the party kept going on. I didn"t get off my motorcycle for 10 years.
72 George is doing a hell of a job during very difficult times, more power to him. Screw all them people who don"t like him.
73I"ve talked to my priest a lot. I used to have to call him or the shrink when there was an explosion, because I was really good at not talking to anybody until there was an explosion. My priest is this cool Italian from New York. We go down to his basement and he opens the wine. We smoke a cigarette and I have my confession. He sends me upstairs to do my Hail Marys. I mean, I"m no Holy Joe, but I have a strong belief. If I wasn"t Catholic I would have blown my brains out. I would pray to God. I would say, "Please, can you send me just a little bit of daylight?" He talked me out of it and we started meeting. His name is Father Pete and he lives in New York. Father Pete put me back on the right track.
74You get desensitized to pain and for three and a half years I developed these symptoms of brain damage-you forget what you did the night before. You have to get out when the doctors tell you to; otherwise, you"re on queer street for the rest of your life. One doctor said to me before a big fight, "our neurological report doesn"t look too good." I was like four fights away from a big, big fight and he said, "Mickey, how much are they paying you? Look at your tests-you won"t be able to count the money".
75I lost the house, the wife, the credibility, the entourage. I lost my soul. I was alone ... I"m sort of OK with it now, but the first time I"m in there, pushing a f***ing cart, getting my supper. I used to go to the 24-hour place in gay town, so no one would recognize me. The only thing I could afford was a shrink, so that"s where my money went. Three times a week for the first two years. The year after that, twice a week and now I"m down to once a week. I"ve only missed two appointments in six years.
76<1994> I thought my talent would transcend my outspokenness. I was wrong. I"m willing to give them 100 per cent this time. I just want a second chance at Hollywood.
77 It"s like when I buy a horse. I don"t want a thick neck and short legs.
