SLIDES: Amazing Hollywood Comebacks

<div class="meta "><span class="caption-text ">Mickey Rourke became one of the biggest recent Hollywood comebacks with his Oscar-nominated starring role in the film &#34;The Wrestler.&#34; Rourke won a Golden Globe in the best actor category for his gritty portrayal of Randy &#34;The Ram&#34; Robinson in the film. Rourke&#39;s earlier movies include &#34;Body Heat,&#34; &#34;Rumble Fish&#34; and &#34;Barfly.&#34; In the mid-1980s, Rourke had a reputation for fighting with producers that affected his job prospects. He told EntertainmentWeekly.com, &#39;&#39;I knew nothing about business or politics. A lot of the actors who are successful, you look around, these guys are college boys -- Ben Affleck, Matt Damon. Me, I just thought you&#39;re either great or you suck! I&#39;m not saying I was great, but I knew I was on my way to being great.&#39;&#39;  &#40;AP Photo&#41;</span></div>
