Mickey Rourke stripped his tough-guy “Wrestler” act when he tearfully dedicated his Walk of Fame honor to his grandmother.
The “Iron Man 2” star became the 254th celebrity to leave his prints in front of the Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on Monday, according to Contactmusic.com.
Rourke attributed achieving such a milestone to his grandmother’s affection and motivation, the Associated Press reported.
“She would’ve told me to...’take that goddamned toothpick out of your mouth so you don’t look like a white trash hillbilly standing on the corner,’” Rourke said. “I wouldn’t be here if I didn’t have the love she gave me.”
