Mickey Rourke thanked his dogs in Golden Globe acceptance speech


 

Even Movie Stars Need Their Dogs!

 

Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke thanked his pooches while delivering an acceptance speech after winning the Best Actor Golden Globe award, as they were there for him even in his darkest hour.

Mickey, who won the award for The Wrestler, revealed on Barbara Walters show that, when he was left alone and was almost on the verge of breaking down, his dogs were the only ones to be by his side.

“I sort of self-destructed and everything came out about fourteen years ago or so … the wife had left, the career was over, the money was not an ounce, The dogs were there when no one else was there,” People magazine quoted Mickey as saying.

Mickey revealed that after his wife Carre Otis left, he faced a major blow and he had only his dogs to make him feel wanted.

“What happened was, I was not in a really good place in my head and my heart, and I think when the wife left, it all came down and I didn’t want to be here,” Mickey said.

“Look, there’s always a weak way out. I’ve always known that. Yeah, I didn’t want to be here, but I didn’t want to kill myself. I just wanted to push a button and disappear,” Mickey added.

Mickey revealed that while he was on the verge of becoming suicidal, he realized that he had to live for his loving dogs, the only ones, who stood by him.

“I think I hadn’t left the house for four or five months, and I was sitting in the closet, sleeping in the closet for some reason, and I was in a bad place, and I just remember I was thinking, ‘Oh, man, if I do this, And then I looked at my dog, Lowjack, and he made a sound, like a little almost human sound. I don’t have kids, the dogs became everything to me. The dog was looking at me going, ‘Who’s going to take care of me?’” Mickey said.
