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.
Hollywood agents are not releasing details on the condition of Rourke’s career, however.
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.
