what makes Mickey Rourke so cool?
1.) he has NEVER once in many moons sported a mullet
2.) he has a great swing..with a baseball bat, with those hips on a bar, in the ring with those jabs and punches that can KO you out..just like that smile  
3.) he has never appeared on a 'has-been' TV show..a la` 'hollywood squares', 'the surreal life'
4.) he has the ripped body of 24 year old pro body-builder and looks that kill
5.) he has too much stamina, depth and diversity to be called-out as 'type-cast'
6.) he made a fashion statement of carrying a small dog around as an accessory YEARS ago
7.) he has the best looking mug in the whole deck of celebrity mug-shot cards..by far
8.) he can make a pink striped 'wife-beater/joey buttafuoco' tee look 'couture'
9.) he knows how to use and wears confidence well and to it's fullest advantage
1/2.) he is still mastering the art of "cool" and is hardly done
