    Rome, Italy, Aug 25, 2009 / 10:44 am (CNA).- Famed Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke, who was at the Sarajevo Film Festival last week, told a Bosnian newspaper that he thanks God and his Catholic faith for giving him a “second chance” in life to overcome his addictions, which almost led him to commit suicide. Speaking to the Bosnian daily “Avaz,” Rourke said, “God gave me a second chance in life and I thank Him.”   Rourke achieved fame in the 80s with action films and erotic thrillers. At the beginning of the 90s he left film for boxing and fell into heavy...

    Kim Basinger, the actress who last left her imprint on America by leaking a voice mail from her ex-husband yelling incoherently at his daughter (after she had likely prevented the daughter from being available per court instruction for his phone call), has shared with all of us her newest embarrassment these days. Her naughty naked past, is catching up with her. In an interview with Yahoo News, Basinger 55, tells the world how "mortified" she is to know that her daughter's 13-16 year old male friends have all seen her private parts. She claims to feel "vulnerable" to know they've...

With a cast including Jet Li, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Forest Whitaker and The Stath, Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables was sure to one of the best action films ever made. But now, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed on to join the testosterone party, which seals the deal - that this will be the biggest and best movie to hit our screens in 2010.

    Interesting. I don't think he gives Bush enough credit, but he's definitely right about the situation Bush inherited. And I give him a lot of credit for having the guts to say this. He tells the publication, "President Bush was in the wrong place at the wrong time, I don't know how anyone could have handled this situation. "I don't give a f**k who's in office, Bush or whoever, there is no simple solution to this problem... I'm not one of those who blames Bush for everything. This s**t between Christians and Muslims goes back to the Crusades, doesn't it....

    Remember when Mickey Rourke was hot? Check him out in the photo above from when he made 9 1/2 Weeks with Kim Basinger. Rent the movie. Watch it. Then tell me the dude wasn’t hot. He specialized as the dashing bad boy and never struck me as the type to do whatever he’s done to his face. He seemed to not care about his looks. He was ruggedly handsome and was into boxing and living on the edge. Apparently he cared more than it seemed he did. Then he kind of disappeared from the movie scene for a while. He’s...

    Mickey Rourke has been forced to dismiss claims he's homophobic after launching into a foul-mouthed rant about a "fag" he almost punched in New York City. The Sin City actor insists he has lots of gay friends and "faggot" is a word they "toss around" all the time, without any derogatory meaning. But Rourke has upset many in the Big Apple's gay community with his potentially offensive comments. Speaking about a recent near fight with a drunken fan, the tough guy actor said, "He was really, really out of control - some big f**king obnoxious fag. I don't mean fag...
