And no, it’s not what you’d think. After spending days whooping it up in the UK, winning a BAFTA and trying hook up with a glamor model, it was time for Mickey Rourke to head home. But on checking into Heathrow airport, his suitcase was found to be over the weight limit. Because it contained 77lb of shoes.
“It was really weird and extraordinary to watch… Staff thought at first he must have had his BAFTA in the case. It was freezing cold but he had no socks on and a pair of blue slip-ons with very low heels. And it turned out that he had about 40 pairs of shoes very similar to the ones he was wearing in the case. It’s the sort of thing you’d expect of Victoria Beckham, but not of a tough guy like Mickey Rourke,” a source tells the Sunday Mirror.
When you’ve got a look, you’ve got a look, we guess. But we’d never noticed Mickey’s shoes before. To be honest, once we’d taken in the hair and the face, that was basically enough for us to be getting on with.
