It's Been Asked Before, But What the Heck Happened to Mickey Rourke?

I'm heading to see The Wrestler along with everyone else, but I've just got reflect on what this man did to his face. He was hot back in the day. Now he looks like he got chewed up and spit out by a meat grinder. Take your vitamins, kids (but not the steroids kind) and stay away from the knife. Sheesh.
