Mickey Rourke Firmly Grips Another Member

People, people—give Mickey Rourke and his new friend that he likes to wrap himself around while wearing leather pants with the fly undone some room. The man’s a possible Oscar-contender, for God’s sake!

Rourke, in London doing promotion for his critically-acclaimed film The Wrestler, stepped out of the Wellington nightclub last night.

He must be tickled pink to have buddied-up with a local who gets the actor right into Londontown’s most impenetrable private locations.

Plus, the Mickster has gamely been up for wherever his new friend wants to go lately.

Maybe when his new companion flies to the States, Rourke can reciprocate by going down to his own favorite watering holes.

After all, it’s a well-known fact that Mickey bends over backwards for his true friends.
