Actor also considered suicide

Mickey Rourke has revealed he came close to killing a man who raped someone close to him.

The actor also planned to take his own life after the murder and even penned a suicide note.

‘I was about to commit two mortal sins,’ he tells Maxim.

Fortunately, Mickey, 52, was talked out of it by New York priest Peter Colapietro.

‘He had a letter he’d written – a note of a conciliatory nature,’ says Father Pete.

‘I told him: “Let’s fold it up and put it behind the statue of St Jude”.’
