Mickey Rourke is either one of the greatest method actors…or the dumbest.
While preparing for his role in The Wrestler, Rourke trained twice a day with an Israeli cage fighter and ate up to 7 seven meals in order to bulk up.
Speaking with Men's Journal, he also hinted that he might have used steroids, but never admits to anything.
He told the magazine, "When I'm a wrestler, I behave like a wrestler."
Well, he at least won a Golden Globe for the sacrifice of…well, his golden globes.
