Sunken Dreamboats, Failures, and the Mob

I saw this photo set on the MSN homepage advertising People Magazine's latest issue about former "Dreamboats." What I find striking about these 3 photos is that Mickey Rourke looks like an Igor-like creature! I mean, man! In that pathetic photo, it looks like he's even saying, "yeeeesss, Master!" Then, Tom Cruise has that ridiculous "I wanna look like a 7-year-old boy" haircut, and finally, Val Kilmer is just looking like "Yeah, I farted, I don't give a shit anymore! I admit it... I'm just too damn tired to fake it anyways!"

Another thing I noticed: Look at the weight loss program ad to the right of the "Sunken Dreamboats." In the "before" photo, in my opinion, the woman looks pretty good to me! Yeah, I have never thought the runway model skinny look was attractive, and I think "curvy" women are more hot, but, what I'm saying is" what's so bad about the first woman's body in the first photo!? In the second photo, she looks like she's possibly....well starving...kinda like this chick did (from The Onion)

I used to comb The Smoking Gun all the time to look at the funny mug shots and arrest records of stars and plain old interesting citizens. Here is a funny story I found there recently. I knew a kid like that in school-but he wasn't caught and arrested for it-the way those suckers smelled, he shoulda been!

One of my favorite parts of TSG was the WMOB section. wmob Here, you can listen to FBI wiretap recordings of Federico "Fritzy" Giovanelli and Frank "Frankie California" Condo and a few other wiseguys talk about...well, nothing much, but some of the recordings are pretty funny! Just trying to imagine these wise guys talking about the most mundane things in life, their wives, and digestive health is too funny! Here is a just sampling of some of their funniest clips, but there's a bunch!


I have seen a lot of Failblog's FAIL Blog: Pictures and Videos of Owned, Pwnd and Fail Moments stuff on other sites like For Your Entertainment , but I went and checked out the site and saw this. Somebody has an anger problem.

Mickey Rourke was pretty monstrous in Sin City, but I thought it was all make up. And I don't think I've seen Kilmer in anything in years. "You don't care about me? I don't care about you!"

Micgar said...

OM-where did that quote come from? I Googled it but nothing came from that-I thought it was from one of those actors!

Jen said...

Mickey Rourke
actually paid MONEY
to look like that


I wonder if his
plastic surgeon thought
he did a good job??!

Micgar said...

Jen: He did!? Damn that is one of the worst plastic surgery jobs I have ever seen!

OM said...

Oh, that wasn't a Val Kilmer quote... Just me. I think Kevin Spacey said they went to acting school together. Kilmer was always that guy who'd one day make it big, but years passed and he just didn't. I'll always remember him fondly for Top Secret, though.

OM-yes I loved Top Secret also!
