Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke says he has calmed down with age and now uses physical violence only when all else has failed.
Rourke said he no longer jumps in readily to fight, reported contactmusic.com. 'The other day, there was some drunk guy troubling me in a restaurant. So I gave him the benefit of the doubt and I told the waitress, 'I want you to watch this. If he touches me, I'm going to knock him right out'. And they got rid of him.'
AdvertisementRourke added: 'In the old days, I would have just punched him in the mouth. He was being really rude and obnoxious, but I'm now able to evaluate and see what the consequences are.'
