  • Sean Penn • on winning the best actor award for “Milk.” OK, it wasn’t as good as Mickey Rourke’s speech last night, but we’ll give him credit for saying something funny. • source

Culture: Mickey Rourke doesn’t even have his dog anymore

  • His adored Chihuahua died! On Oscar Week! When Rourke won his Golden Globe, he thanked his dogs. “Sometimes, when a man is alone, that’s all you got is your dog,” he said “And they’ve meant the world to me.” Well, the star of “The Wrestler” is gonna be tested – hardcore – later this week, as he faces the Oscars, where he’s nominated for best actor, without his all-important dog. No word on whether his truck broke down or his wife left him. source
