Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke, although his career failed after some bad issues.
Anyway: Mickey on getting his wife (Carre Otis) back: “Women are stronger than men. When women cut if off, they cut it off.
But men crawl on their bellies to get their women back. I crawled. And I’m glad.” .. Star Watch, The Singapore Women’s Weekly, Sept 98 ..

A buddy in school informed him of an available role in the school play. While supporting himself with odd jobs, he studied with the distinguished coach, Sandra Seacat, who cast him as Eddie in a production of Arthur Miller’s ‘A View From the Bridge.
