Mickey Rourke talked with the Guardian about all sorts of things such as monogamy — he can’t wait to start practicing it! — and death.
In 2006, Mickey lost his brother Joe to a 25 year-long battle with cancer. His grandmother, the woman who raised Rourke and his sibling, kept in touch with the deceased Joe the old fashioned way: via Oijua board. “My grandmother has been the most important woman in my life. I lost her about four months ago, at 99. She was incredibly well read, two books a week her entire life. She taught me the importance of being a gentleman, and how that will carry you a long way. She told me these things a million times, but maybe I didn’t listen hard enough. My brother Joe was just as fond of her. He called her four times a day his whole life. Joe died in my arms, but she still carried on speaking to him, via her Ouija board.”
Listen, Mickey, you’re a little strange and apparently your relatives are a little weird, too. I mean, talking to your dead relatives via Ouija board is just odd. Everyone knows that metal coat hangers are the best way to catch a signal to the afterworld.
