Hot new couple alert: Mickey Rourke and Bai Ling

Mickey Rourke, 56, has been spotted getting hot and heavy in public with nipple slip queen Bai Ling, 42. The two made out at celebrity hot spot Chateau Marmont. There’s no word if they rented a room afterwards. Just try to get that image out of your head now – you can’t do it, can you?

MICKEY Rourke (above) is already reaping the benefits of his comeback. The star of “The Wrestler” was at the Chateau Marmont in Hollywood the other night with Sean Penn and his long-suffering wife, Robin Wright Penn, when, our witnesses said, Rourke was accosted by fame-craving Bai Ling. Rourke was only too happy to oblige the Chinese-born actress and the two “made out and partied pretty hard.”

Rourke was linked to Pamela Anderson in September after the two were also spotted making out at a club. Those two seem to make a little more sense than Rourke and Bai Ling, although Ling is in such a league of her own it’s hard to think of a celebrity who make make a good match for her – maybe Dane Cook.

I saw Rourke on “The Tonight Show” on Tuesday night and he was pretty low key with Leno. Leno was his former neighbor so they reminisced a little about the good old days when Rourke was swimming in cash and used to have all his biker buddies over the mansion, their bikes lined up 20 deep outside. Rourke also talked about the pain of his career slump and how he started to get desperate after about 11 years. He told a story about how called up a friend and asked him for a construction job somewhere, only to get hung up on because the guy thought he was joking. Rourke worked as a boxer for around five and a half years in the early 90s when the offers weren’t coming in. For those of you who have mentioned his very obviously altered face – it’s revealed in an interview with CNN that he needed extensive reconstruction after all the damage from years of boxing. He also suffered balance problems and memory loss.

In the CNN article Rourke talked about how his award winning role in The Wrestler was cathartic for him. The character helped him work through the trauma and grief he had after losing everything when he couldn’t get roles due to self destructive behavior. We’ll see if that life-changing role for Rourke also earns him an Oscar. He’s getting more work as it is and things are looking way up for him. He’s even scoring with D-listers.

    Good on him, he is a good actor, All time fav flick of his was Bullet.

  2. CandyKay says:

    Has Bai Ling done anything in the U.S., other than being photographed in extreme outfits?

    I can see from her bio that she’s done a few films in China. Anyone know if that was quality work?

  3. Tess says:

    Holy Smikey!!!

    But must admit, I’ve got a soft spot for Mickey and saw her in a film about 5 or 6 yrs. ago called Face and she did a nice job with it.

  4. kate says:

    i wonder which one of them screamed louder when they woke up together in the morning?

  5. Kelly says:

    shes a pill, Mickey hold out you can do better

  6. voodoobetty says:

    @Kelly – HAHAHAHAHAHAHA good one!

  7. poopie says:

    i still compare the way he looked in 9 1/2 weeks to NOW. i can’t even look at him; he should sue the plastic surgeon who did this to him ! LOOK AWAY LOOK AWAY !

  8. Baholicious says:

    I am only on board with this if we can call them Blourke. Because it sounds like ‘hoark,’ which is what I want to do when I see them together.

    @Poopie: He destroyed his face boxing. His face is mostly reconstructive work so cut him some slack.

  9. Dariana says:

    I was about to say “Are you kidding?” when I wrote that Bai Ling is 42 (Whoaaa!!!). I suppose it’s pretty ok now :) ) Perfect crazy match!

  10. Me2 says:

    Bai Ling has the ugliest nipples in Celebdom.
    Kate Moss comes in a close second.

  11. truth-SF says:

    These 2 together makes perfect sense!!!

  12. orion70 says:

    I’m surprised that Mickey Rourke is actually still capable of moving his face to begin with.

  13. Simon Scowl says:

    Didn’t Rourke just get done talking about what a crappy actor Penn is? Was that, as they say in wrestling, a “work”?

  14. Baholicious says:

    @Simon Scowl: Yesiree Bob, it’s called a “work.” You get a gold star!

  15. Bodhi says:

    Bai Ling is 42?!?! She must drink the blood of virgins to have skin like that!

  16. Chris says:

    The years were not nice to Mickey Rourke :(

  17. Kelly says:

    Do you guys think it really matter if you win a Globe, or Oscar? I can think of many that won then never worked again. for ex, “kelly” from Bad News Bears grew up and was MIA then won an award for playing a creepy pedafile. He hasn’t worked since. So it really doesnt do shit for you if you win. right?

  18. Di says:

    Bai Ling is crazy, but a fine serious actress.

  19. Yae says:

    Candy Kay, we all know you only get photographed if you KNOW someone. Bai Ling I’m sure has made her rounds. At her defense she does look amazingly impish, and like a sprite.

  20. Yae says:

    And really, the way they shove “old ugly men should have fresh women” imagery down our throats to satisfy Hollywood Elite’s males is just too obvious here.

  21. Gina says:

    I think Bai Ling is beautiful. I’ve seen her in 1 film and she was alright in it… not bad acting at all.

    Mickey Rourke looks like Phantom of the Opera. What happened to his face?! I remember back when he was actually attractive… like in 9 1/2 Weeks and Angel Heart. If he thinks he is better looking after his surgeries, then someone needs to check him into a looney bin.

  22. Datou says:

    I just saw a movie “Shanghai Baby” w Bai Ling. I didn’t know she was in it, I bought the fake DVD because I live in Shanghai and thought it would be cool. It was the biggest POS I’d ever seen and she was painful to watch. Except when she was naked, which was most of the movie hehe

  23. Christina X says:

    Oh my god, she really bothered me in The Crow. That’s the best she ever looked, though.

    She has a young face, but (in my opinion) sort of ugly features. I’d rather have an aged face but with pretty features.

    She has a great body, and I like her fashion sense a lot.

    Whatever, at least she and Mickey Rourke won’t be just another boring couple.

  24. believe in me this is far from the hottest couple hahaha… at least i excited to see her new movies coming out… Chain Letter and The Hustle… the trailers for both look really good…
