Mickey Rourke Rocks Animal-Friendly Attire at Iron Man 2 Premiere

| by PETA

Oh, Mickey, you're so kind, your love for animals blows our minds … Hey, Mickey!

Why am I cheering for Mickey Rourke? Look at the mock croc he rocked at this week's Iron Man 2 premiere:

"[It's] some kind of crocodile or something," says Rourke. "It's not real, though … I didn't make it. A guy named David August made it. Sylvester Stallone turned me on to the guy. He's really a rock and roll dude."

A dude who has always worn his heart on his sleeve (and lapel), Mickey wouldn't hurt a fly—or a crocodile, a dog, or any other animal. Just check out his moving essay in the paperback version of PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk's book, One Can Make a Difference: How Simple Actions Can Change the World. He writes about how his six rescued dogs brought him back from the brink and "saved my life!"
