Mickey Rourke Lines Up for Putin T-Shirt

A T-shirt adorned with Vladimir Putin’s head in a sailor cap, framed by a wreath of flowers? Count Mickey Rourke in. The actor and martial artist lined up with hundreds of people at Moscow Central department store in Red Square to buy the much-coveted T-shirt, which went on sale for the second time on Monday. “If I didn’t like him, I wouldn’t buy the T-shirt, believe me,” Rourke (who seems to have put the shirt on immediately after purchasing it) told a reporter at the scene. “I met him a couple of times and he was a real gentleman, a very cool regular guy, looked me right in the eye. I think he is a good guy. If I didn’t, believe me I wouldn’t wear the T-shirt.”
