Mickey Rourke Walks the Dog

By: Janie Marcus / October 23, 2008

Weathered (and that’s putting it mildly) actor Mickey Rourke was snapped taking his pooch out for a stroll in Rome, Italy.

The pup is taking advantage of Italy’s rep for fashion by working a darling sweater-like pullover. It wants to go to Milan, stat!

That doggie is so doggone (sorry) cute that it even eclipses Rourke’s recent….rugged…appearance. It’s not like Mickey isn’t working, though.

He’s getting rave reviews for his role in Darren Aronofsky‘s The Wrestler, and did a similar bang-up job in Sin City a couple of years back.

Of course, these were roles that REQUIRED him to look like 25 miles of bad road but, hey, whatever works.
