6. Mickey Rourke

Speaking of cautionary tales, where do we even start with Mickey Rourke.

For starters, he was poised to take over Hollywood; then somehow, it all went away.

To be honest, this list wouldn’t be complete without mentioning the retired boxer.

Mickey Rourke gained international fame after starring in movies like Diner, Rumble fish, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Barfly, 9 ½ Weeks, The Rainmaker and Get Carter.

His notable turns in these movies landed him a role in The Wrestler which earned Mickey an oscar nomination.

However, as with most celebrities – Mickey got involved with drugs, alcohol and the evidence of his bad choices began to tell on his appearance.

In search of a quick fix, Mickey turned to a plastic surgeon.

His cheek bones and nose reconstructions, hair implants and skin tightening has Mickey looking like nothing of the man who was set to conquer Hollywood.


See what we mean?
