Mickey Rourke Fingernails

Wedding Tips & Ideas | April 12 2010 | by Jenny | 6 Comments

Fingernails are the perfect barometer to say what the state of your health condition is. It is hard to realize that you have some inner wrong condition, but by mere looking at your fingernails, you may discover that you may have some serious state condition that you need to take care of.

That is the case of Mickey Rourke. He is an American actor, who has respected himself and made the most of his appearances as a leading actor in films like Heaven’s Gate, Body Heat, Diner, Eureka, Angel Heart, Desperate Hours, White Sands. Buffalo ’66, The Informers, Iron Man 2, Passion Play and others. These are just some of the movies he played in. Besides playing in movies he has also had a boxing career. In his small boxing career he suffered some injuries, breaking his nose, toe, ribs. He even had a loss of memory for a short time. Anyhow, this sport left marks on his face also, being slightly disfigured.

As his all life he lived as he wanted doing things his way, he was never preoccupied about his health condition, moreover about his look. Taking a glance on Mickey Rourke fingernails, everyone can observe that they are not the healthiest fingernails seen. Taking a better look at them you can see that they are yellowish in color and they are curved. They have been like this ever since we know Mickey Rourke, but keep getting worse.
The Mickey Rourke fingernails curving may signify that he has some inner problems. This curving surface of your fingernails means that you may be experiencing some heart problems, or lung disease or even some other inner trauma. Besides this, you have to associate the yellowish color. This comes with more causes, like respiratory problems, diabetics, liver disorders, kidney disease, or some external causes like smoking or fingernail infection.

While Mickey Rourke fingernails show these two signs, we can think that something very wrong is happening with him. Anyhow, though as obvious as it is, he may not seem to be bothered by this, nor do his acting partners. He sure has the yellowish color gotten from the smoking habit, but it also may be combined with other internal factors. Anyway as he himself admits, he had a crazy life, full of drugs, medicines, fights and alcohol, which could do nothing good to him. He accepts himself as he is, and the viewers have learned to like him for what he represents, the good fierce actor, that pays more attention on the essence than on the looks.

When observing so sizable in your fingernails, one should not think twice when going to a dermatologist to give you his specialized opinion.  He may discover you have an illness you were not aware of having and send you to the right doctor.

    Mickey had lead poisoning as a child you dummies, that
    is why his nails are that way. Mickey is a sexy man any
    way we can have him. God Bless Mickey. Mickey deserves
    a 2nd chance and he is showing that he is worth it.
    Stop trashing True Talent. Mickey is a great actor,start
    watching all his movies you turkeys and shut up.

    The deformity is medically known as “clubbing” of the fingernails or more eruditely as “chronic hypertrophic pulmonary osteoarthropathy”. This physical sign can be hereditary or more commonly associated with lung diseases even lung cancer. The duration would rule out a lung neoplasm, but not other pulmonary diseases. Lead poisoning is not associated with nail clubbing. The toe nails are also usually affected concurrently with fingernail clubbing. The presence of clubbing is not in itself harmful.

      I also have clubbed fingers and toes. They have been this way since I was 17 years old (I’m 53 now). I have had many tests and visited many doctors. No one can give me an explanation for my clubbing. They all say it is idiosympatic (basically this means they don’t have a clue). Just because someone is different than you, don’t go trashing them. I like Mickey. I’d love to meet him some day, and compare clubbed digits. He is the only person I have ever known with the same condition as I have. He is the unofficial spokesperson for a rather uncommon medical condition and I applaud his bravery.

    Dr. Petta is spot-on. Fingernail “clubbing” is related to chronic pulmonary disease and has nothing to do with lead poisoning.
