Mickey Rourke got engaged to his 24-year-old Russian girlfriend


Oh, Mickey. Will he ever learn? Probably not. Page Six is reporting the rumor that Mickey proposed to his 24 year old Russian girlfriend Elena Kuletskaya recently, and that they plan to marry in the spring. Mickey is 57 years old. This would be his third marriage, and probably her first, but who really knows anything about this girl? I mean, other than she’s probably kinky enough to get Mickey to propose. I love the guy, but something tells me he likes some crazy stuff in bed.

Reformed Hollywood hell-raiser Mickey Rourke is making plans to wed Russian beauty Elena Kuletskaya in Russia this spring, sources tell Page Six.

Rourke, 57, has been dating stunning blond model Kuletskaya, 24, for several months and popped the question to her over dinner last week. The star has told friends he’s planning a Moscow wedding in April.

“They haven’t booked a venue or made any solid plans. He just knows he wants to do it in April, and he’s been asking what is involved in a traditional Russian wedding ceremony,” a friend of Rourke said.

Kuletskaya reportedly dumped Russian pop star Dima Bilan for Rourke, whom she’s been tutoring in her native tongue for his role as Russian villain “Whiplash” in the upcoming “Iron Man 2.” She and Rourke have recently canoodled their way through New York and Europe. She was dripping in diamonds as she accompanied Rourke to pick up his GQ Man of the Year award at London’s Royal Opera House in September.

In Manhattan last week, the lovebirds went puppy shopping to replace Rourke’s beloved dog, Loki, who died right before the Oscars.

Rourke has already hit it off with his mother-in-law-to-be: our spies spotted him giving Elena’s mom the star treatment a while ago at The Bank at Wonderland in LA.

It will be the third trip to the altar for Rourke, who cleaned up his bad-boy image and revived his career with the 2008 hit “The Wrestler.” He and actress Debra Feuer ended their eight-year marriage in 1989. Rourke later said that his role in the steamy “9½ Weeks” “was not particularly considerate to my wife’s needs.”

In 1992, he wed “Wild Orchid” co-star Carre Otis. He was arrested for beating her up in 1994, but they stayed together till 1998. Rourke’s rep didn’t return our calls.

Well, if it’s true, congratulations to the happy couple. I do think Mickey is probably in the best place in his life at this moment. He’s spent the last fifty years wrestling with his demons, and in interviews from the past year, he seems so mellowed and, for lack of a better word, Zen. I also think it’s a good sign that Elena is an animal lover, or that she seems to love dogs. Because Mickey’s puppies are his family. Those are his babies, and they’re getting a new mama!

Mickey and Elena at the GQ Men of the Year show on September 8, 2009 in London. Credit: WENN. Photo update: here are some photos of Mickey out with Elena on 11/7/09. There’s some question over whether this is the same woman. This woman is not named by the photo agency, but in the event pictures she’s listed as Elena Kuletskaya

Update by Celebitchy: After many of you said that Rourke was photographed out with a different woman than shown in these event photos, I compared the pictures and it does look like another woman. They are the same height and build with the same hair but the two women have different face shapes and noses. The woman with Rourke at the event was credited as Elena Kuletskaya by the photo agency back in September. The woman he’s out with earlier this week is not named.

    I like Mickey, scary face and all. I just saw The Wrestler the other day and it was really good. I hadn’t been all that interested to see it, but it was totally not what I thought it was going to be.

  2. the truth says:

    hmmmmmmmm i wonder why she is with him, could money and fame be part of it?

  4. CadieBelle says:

    The “crazies” always go for the Russian girls

  5. Linda says:

    They look ridiculous!

  6. birdie says:

    She is quite attractive… But I can’t help thinking “Mail Order Bride”

  7. Powerade says:

    poor man’s michelle pfeifer.

  8. ~M says:

    She is Russian. They are not too choosy.

  9. MSat says:

    Yes, because one look at him and you say, “That’s husband material.”

  10. lilred says:

    Somebody please show this man what soap and water are for.

  11. princess pea says:

    @ ~M – Hi. I’d like to formally introduce myself. I’m the annoying one in the comments who will take the time to point out that you really oughtn’t generalize an entire nation of people to one characteristic. It’s rude and false.

    Find another reason to snark… Make fun of her makeup, or her taste in men. But not her nationality.

  12. Popcorny says:

    Usually I have fun with Mickey Rourke and think of him in comical terms based on his looks and offbeat persona.
    But all of a sudden I now remember him as being physically abusive (against women). Drugs and partying wasn’t his only issue.
    I dunno, just gave me a bigtime pause on hearing his “happy news” and it kinda made it not-so happy or cute an idea/person.

  13. birdie says:

    Also, who wants to be in married in Moscow in April? That’s not a spring wedding… It’s still freeeeezing there until late May.

  14. Lantana says:

    Maybe they’ll be bff’s with Ronnie Wood and his lovely lady!

  15. Icecat says:

    LOL Princess Pea!

  16. ~M says:

    @PP: Unfortunately you have the facts wrong…

    And it IS a fact that 99.9% of Russian women are materialistic twatts and 99,9% of man are alcocholics. And those numbers are a good reason to generalize.

    The White Russia you are trying to defend was wiped out and long gone in 1918 when communist took over. What is left is the 99% I’m talking about.

  17. Velvet_Julie says:

    I agree with Princess Pea. There are gold diggers, male and female, willing to marry anyone for money in virtually all nations of the world, so I’d hardly say this is a trait of russians. In the past, many russian women, indeed, married foreigners for money, to escape from poverty in the USSR. But, now, this sort of thing is somehow different. There may be prostituition and there are still some cases of mail order brides, but in a very reduced number, if compared to some years ago. About men being alcoholics, well, Russia is pretty cold and if you had to go through the sh*t they had to, you’d have some good reasons to drink.
    That said, I think this girl is not marrying Mickey for his fantastic beauty (he looks pretty bad now, doesn’t he?). His money and fame certainly play a part in their relationship. Anyway, I hope he has learned how to treat women properly now. His marriage to Carre Otis was pretty nasty.

    P.S: I wonder how ~M got to know 99,9% of the russian population. I’m not that good in Math, but I suppose this includes a lot of people, no? 🙂

  18. Enonymous says:

    Thats the same girl that was with MR when he bought the puppy? I though it was a different girl, in the photo above she looks nice while in the other photos when she was wearing no make-up she looked fug. As for Mickey R, well the word fug is too polite on him.

  19. princess pea says:

    ~M – Funny, I wasn’t actually trying to defend Russia . I was just making a point about stereotypes and prejudice. I’d have given you the same lecture if his girlfriend was Irish and you claimed she was a drunk, or if she was Asian and you made a massage parlor reference. Get it? It’s a coincidence that you’re shitting on my personal heritage right now; I’d be sticking up this way for yours too.

  20. IrenaCam says:

    Enonymous You are right in these photos with Mickey, Elena, and the dog is completely different girl, I live in Russia, I am Russian and I can definitely say live here, not only
    alcoholics, but also quite normal people, you are in America to argue as primitive people, come to us to see how we live, so the news about the wedding of Mickey and Elena next stupid news

  21. ~M says:

    Dear Princess,

    Your real heritage died together with Николай II! Since than you have Lenin, Stalin, Putin and Medvedev left, and you know darn well what they’ve did to your country! That is why Elena is possible and real!

    Unless you are a descendant to the Royal family or to someone who did not lost their soul to Lenin or Stalin you shouldn’t be offended.

    You can not ofend me on heritage. I’m not an American. 😉

    Если вы хотите обсудить историю России и признавать факт, то я могу дать вам мой адрес электронной почты и мы можем иметь беседу. Здесь не место.

  22. Nebraska says:

    Whoa, this Russian stuff is cool!

  23. bros says:

    yah im digging the Russian’s duking it out on the site! more foreign language posts! 🙂

    I heard a very interesting piece on NPR about Russia currently being the largest market for heroin in the world, which comes right in from Afghanistan, and that many people have SEVERE alcoholism there–fully 50% of deaths 25-55 year olds are alcohol related. 50% !!!!

    that being said, gold diggers come in every shape and size. there are alot of entrenched stereotypes about eastern european women and gold digging, however. they are cultural tropes by now. I think its a slight waste of time to go around defending every nationality and ethnicity from their stereotypes.

  24. Who Cares says:

    The girl pictured with him, is not the one he’s been seen kissing and snuggling with from NY to LA for the past few months. There is another thin blond, that he bought a puppy with a week or so ago, that the press is refering to as the same name as this one. If he is engaged, I don’t think it’s the girl he’s pictured with here.

  25. Celebitchy says:

    @Who Cares – I’ve seen those dog pictures, but this woman in the event pictures is credited by the photo agency as Elena Kuletskaya. I think it’s the same woman because she’s the same height (if you control for heels) and build with the same length and color hair. She just looks different with her hair up and without makeup. I’ll add some of those pictures to this post.

    -Update- Ok, I added the pictures and after comparing the face shapes I don’t think they’re the same woman. It’s really hard to tell though. See the update to the post above.

  26. IrenaCam says:

    Ну и причем тут история? Я говорю про настоящее время, историю я итак знаю, а вы давно в России были? Думаю в Америке не меньше любителей пива выпить, чем здесь 🙂
    Expensive Americans, forgive that in Russian
    К тому же вы не видите, что с Микки две разных девушки?

  27. IrenaCam says:

    модель анастасия макаренко And type in the searcher, in Russian, it is better in Google
    To this girl he has presented a puppy, instead of Lena Kuletsky, with Lena it have noticed all once, is simple it its neigbour, at them apartment in one area, they left to walk, and them have there and then married

  28. ~M says:

    Sorry CB, this will be the last one in foreign language! 😉 We are trying to make peace!

    @ Ирена: Если я извиняюсь для быть жестковатой, то вы извиняетесь для факта что я немножко прав?!

  29. olga says:

    i like her, she’s lovely, screw him, girl. The russians girls the best!
    we know how to look after man, we are good educated, we know how to look good, sex- is not a issue. it’s a mate soul…..

  31. good says:

  32. Donna says:

    The girl isn’t the same as that GQ model. ANASTASSIJA MAKARENKO…They look so much alike. She is an Elite supermodel. I wonder if she would support him if he can’t spoil her anymore. NOT.

  33. Anonymous says:

    The girl pictured with him recently is a Russian Model named Anna. She is based in LA and NY.

    Try find some photos of Mickey Rourke at Vitali Klitschkos fight at the Staples Centre and you will see Anna with him. Elena is a different Russian and Anna is the girl he loves.

  34. wickedwillie says:

  35. Pavel says:

    Russian women are some of the most beautiful. I’m happy for Mickey.

  36. Alex G says:

    Hei, it’s their personal (!) business whether they marry for money, fame, sex, “love” or, whatever… why would you care?

    Age difference? Good for them! As long as they 18, they can make their choices.

    I’m Russian myself, but I’m not sure if Russian girls are the best. As far as her looks, she ain’t even beautiful… She looks sexy, alright, but not beautiful… anyway, don’t take it as an axiom, it’s just my opinion… bye (LOL)
