He often plays the tough guy when getting in character for a film. But Mickey Rourke showed a softer more emotional side as he broke down in tears during a casual outing in Los Angeles on Sunday, Daily Mail reported.
The 62-year-old actor was consoled by his model girlfriend, Anastassija Makarenko, who wrapped him in a warm embrace.
The Sin City: A Dame To Kill For star wore an expression of great sadness while standing on the side of the street next to a white Mercedes Benz vehicle, with Anastassija by his side.
She placed a comforting hand on his bicep before pulling him close for a loving hug.
The duo were also seen standing on the sidewalk, immersed in conversation, as Mickey held his four pet pooches on a leash.
He eventually plopped down on a large boulder and smoked a cigarette.
Mickey appeared to be out running errands, as he carried a bag from Papyrus, which sells greeting cards and stationary.
The Iron Man 2 star sported a black V-neck T-shirt and a quilted vest with dark blue jeans and pale brown Oxford shoes.
He accessorized with a silver heart pendant necklace and a Louis Vuitton man purse.
The couple are very much in love, with Mickey telling People in 2010: 'She's a gift from heaven. Obviously she's a very beautiful woman.
'But she's got the biggest heart, she's got a great family, she's really close to her mother and father - they're great people.'
Anastassija added: 'He's the most beautiful man in the world, he's a sweetheart, and the best boyfriend.'
The two were not seen together on Saturday, Valentine's Day. Instead, Mickey was spotted on a cosy outing in Los Angeles with his two Pomeranian-mix puppies.
The Johnny Handsome star dressed his muscular frame in khaki trousers, a gray V-neck T-shirt, a plaid vest, white trainers, and a gray jumper tied around his waist.
With a pair of gold sunglasses and various necklaces as accessories, Mickey showcased his personal style - along with his famously evolving locks, cut in a long grey a-line bob.
