With Mickey Rourke, the honeymoon period consists of a gun to the head, his ex wife Carré Otis tells Anderson Cooper on Tuesday’s Anderson.
“It wasn’t the first time, but I had said to him, ‘I don’t want you going out,’” Otis, 43, said she told the Iron Man 2 star, who was going through well-publicized battles with drugs and alcohol at the time of their June 1992 wedding.
But Mickey, Otis said, didn’t bother staying in despite his new bride’s wishes.
“He put a gun to my head and told me he was going out,” she said of Rourke, whose career was reborn in 2008 playing washed-up grappler Randy “The Ram” Robinson in the Oscar-nominated film, The Wrestler.
“He put a gun, right to your head?” Cooper asked Otis.
“He did,” she said.
The ill-fated couple finally divorced in 1998.
