Mickey Rourke Interviews Sergei Polunin, March 2014

The youngest and most brilliant principal of London’s Royal Ballet traded the western troupe for the stage of the Musical Theater of Stanislavsky and Nemirovich-Danchenko. But, according to Interview, could any day set sail for Hollywood.  Mickey Rourke invited him. Personally.

POLUNIN:  A strange thing happened to me just a couple of months ago.  Mystic somehow.  Let’s say, when I did the tattoo joker, began a crazy time in my life.  Made tattoo of my director – and everything was stable. When I got Mad House on my back, started again same game.  On my back is the inscription “I’m sorry, tiger.” I lost the girl I called the cub. So I made a tattoo to get her back.

Rourke:  Never forever be engraved next to the name of the girl, as I did.  A long time to get rid of it. ( Polunin laughs. )  I had just cut a piece of skin. ( Rourke turns to the dog, sitting on his hands. )  Kiss Daddy!  Do not want?  Only after shopping?  Oh, it flows Russian blood! ( Laughs .) Russian blood from Beverly Hills.

POLUNIN:  Moscow girls too often powder brains.

Rourke:  Yeah, heard.  Hey, is there something you’re eating, or what?

POLUNIN:  No, it’s just a lip balm.

Rourke:  Gotcha.  When you’re in LA, you can stay with me.  On the second floor.  I’ll feed you normal food.

POLUNIN:  Thank you, Mickey!

Rourke:  To your health!  Still, I would take you up on a couple of ballet lessons.  I want just once to jump really high.
