Mickey Rourke breaks down & tells Piers Morgan 'I wish Putin would wake up & stop this sh**' as he blasts Ukraine war | The Sun

ACTING legend Mickey Rourke broke down yesterday as he demanded Mad Vlad "stop this sh**" in Ukraine.

Speaking to Piers Morgan, Rourke, 69, was forced to don sunglasses as he burst into tears after revealing how harrowing images from the conflict have torn him apart.

The hard nut actor and former boxer, known for hits such as The Wrestler and Sin City, told TalkTV's Uncensored "all this s*** is not right" as he struggled to put into words the hell Putin has unleashed.

He blasted: “I wish some kind of little bell would ring in his head or his heart and he’d wake up and just stop all this sh**.

"I don't understand what he wants… all that sh** is not right.

"They made me think he is doing really terrible, bad things."

Visibly emotional, Rourke said: "I saw an image of a man who was looking at a ditch… and I put myself in his position… he was looking for his brother."

But it all became too much for Mickey who told of one particular image that "bothered me the most".

He explained it was an image of a man left with only a little grey kitten after a Russian strike butchered "five family members" and flattened his home.

Rourke choked up as he recounted the horror images and put his sunglasses on to cover the tears as they streamed down his face.

The actor also addressed speculation put to him by Piers who probed a visit Rourke paid to Putin in 2014 which saw him sport a t-shirt with the tyrants face emblazoned on it.

But actor was quick to set the record straight, slamming: "That was 2014 ok, I just want to make that clear!"

He explained how he visited Russia with a raft of other entertainers from the US, including actress Sharon Stone who allegedly "danced" with Putin.

It was part of an entertainment event thrown by the Russian president.

On the trip, Rourke told how Putin took him to a children's cancer hospital in St Petersburg.

It was here he said that he saw a side to Putin that was "genuinely concerned" and "empathetic".

Pushed on how that Putin compares to the one who has launched a bloodthirsty invasion of Ukraine killing thousands of kids, the former boxer said it "blows my mind".
