We're really impressed, Mickey!
Yesterday, Mickey Rourke visited a children's hospital in St. Petersburg, where he handed out gifts to patients.
Rourke is currently in the city with Sharon Stone and Paul Anka, all of whom are involved in a charity initiative to fight eye disease in children.
Glad to see you continuing to turn things around, Mickey! This is a wonderful and selfless way to spend your time!
Keep it up, bb!
