Mickey Rourke obviously doesn't deny getting plastic surgery, but he has quite the back story to justify it. This once strickingly strikingly handsome took up boxing in 1991 which turned out to be a mastake. When reflecting about it, he this to say about it to the Daily Mail in 2009, "I had my nose broken twice. I had five operations on my nose and one on a smashed cheekbone. I had to have cartilage taken from my ear to rebuild my nose and a couple of operations to scrape out the cartilage because the scar tissue wasn't healing properly. That was one of the most painful operations, but the worst was hemorrhoids." So, Mickey Rourke clearly needed the plastic surgery for medical reasons. But, why did it turn out to be such a bad result? The actor once claimed that he went to the wrong man to put his face back together, and he has continued to try to correct the 2008 hatchet job ever since. This photo shows him after the bad plastic surgery.
