Melbourne (ANI): After two failed marriages, Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke has vowed never to marry an actress. The 57-year-old star was previously married to actresses Debra Feuer and Carre Otis and the separation has left him badly bitten.
"I don't want to live with an actress again, no matter how they look," the Daily Telegraph quoted him as telling the Mail on Sunday newspaper. "I'm working opposite Megan Fox and Eva Green next, and I'm certainly not complaining. But I'll tell you, once bitten ..." he added.
The Wrestler star, who has four pet Chihuahuas, credits his dogs to help him get through the dark times. "My dogs really helped me get through the dark times. I lost everything at the same time - my wife, my career, my house, my credibility - and all I had left was the dogs plus just two or three people who stuck with me," he said.
"I was living under the mat - being known and then being known for being out of work, for having fallen from grace. You go and buy a pack of smokes and people say, “Hey, didn't you used to be that actor?" So it was a very shameful place, and the dogs (he has owned eight chihuahuas) were my friends.
“A lot of people you meet out there turn their backs on you once you're down, but the dogs don't. The one dog I loved, Loki, died last year, and she is deeply missed but with me in spirit," he added.
