ACTING legend Mickey Rourke broke down yesterday as he demanded Mad Vlad “stop this sh**” in der Ukraine.
Sprechen mit Piers Morgan, Rourke, 69, was forced to don sunglasses as he burst into tears after revealing how harrowing images from Die russische Invasion in der benachbarten Ukraine ist ausgebrochen, und die ukrainische Hauptstadt Kiew wird angegriffen have torn him apart.
The hard nut actor and former boxer, known for hits such as The Wrestler and Sin City, told TalkTV’s Uncensored “all this s*** is not right” as he struggled to put into words the hell Putin has unleashed.
He blasted: “I wish some kind of little bell would ring in his head or his heart and he’d wake up and just stop all this sh**.
“I don’t understand what he wants… all that sh** is not right.
“They made me think he is doing really terrible, bad things.”

Visibly emotional, Rourke said: “I saw an image of a man who was looking at a ditch… and I put myself in his position… he was looking for his brother.”
But it all became too much for Mickey who told of one particular image that “bothered me the most”.
He explained it was an image of a man left with only a little grey kitten after a Russian strike butchered “five family members” and flattened his home.
Rourke choked up as he recounted the horror images and put his sunglasses on to cover the tears as they streamed down his face.
