Mickey Rourke settles for a modest duplex rent

Mickey Rourke may have gotten some big projects since his acting comeback. Still, his last movie was a flop, he’s not getting any younger and that showbiz was not as favorable as before. So it wouldn’t come as a surprise if he’s trying to save up for his future. For instance, he transferred from his 5,000 square-foot loft in Manhattan to a modest duplex in Morton Street. But he may not live there for long as he just rented the place for $19,800 and is still looking for practical yet more favorable housing units near Hollywood.

That’s showbiz for you. One moment your career is skyrocketing to sucess, the next, you’re an old has-been who is struggling to find your next big break. Fame can be overwhelming, but you gotta keep your feet on the ground. Mickey Rourke had a rising acting career in his early years when he starred in box-office hits “9 1/2 Weeks” with Kim Basinger and. He did return to his first passion though, which is boxing. He had a good run on his boxing career for a few years until he finally retired and went back to acting. But at least Rourke’s career isn’t totally over. He’s set to star in yet another challenging role as a gay rugby player in a yet-to-be-titled movie.

According to reports, Mickey Rourke is considering the famous Apthorp condominium where units are sold for 3 to 4 million on an average. He and her Russian girlfriend went into the Apthorp condominium to check out units for sale. Some A-listers have dropped by Apthorpe to check favorable living units as well, including Brangelina, Bruce Willis, and Matt Damon.
