This is the third year in a row I've heard that Mickey Rourke died in a snowboarding accident. Can't gullible people at least use Google?—

Setting aside cheap jokes about plastic surgery for the moment, no, Mickey Rourke has not died, and he wasn’t in a snowboarding accident. The actor does have a way of escaping death’s clutches on Twitter, though — he survived a similar, non-existent snowboarding accident last summer as well.
Someday Mickey Rourke will really die and nobody will believe it. He's achieved a type of immortality!—

Hollywood agents are not releasing details on the condition of Rourke’s career, however.
Mickey Rourke is alive and Osama Bin Laden is still dead.—

Mickey Rourke just died… and then he was made not dead. It's a miracle! No, it's the Internets.—

The thought of Mickey Rourke snowboarding is weirder even than the thought of him dying that way.—

I legitimately wanted to believe Mickey Rourke was dead and tweet about it rather than do the work I'm supposed to be doing. I AM A MONSTER.—

Back to work, you ghoul! Now that we know he’s still alive, there’s time for a couple of plastic surgery jokes for old times’ sake.
Most of Mickey Rourke's body was replaced with anti-dying material, so I'm going to guess he's still alive, twitter rumors be damned.—
