They starred in the movie “Bullet” together and became good friends, and when asked about the late Rap legend, Rourke’s face lit up.
There have been several conversations in recent days about Tupac’s talents thanks to a controversial take by T-Pain, but he isn’t the only one discussing the late star. Rourke also shared a tidbit of his days with Shakur as he remembered his friend fondly.
Rourke recently visited Piers Morgan Uncensored where he spoke about the Amber Heard-Johnny Depp saga at length, but near the conclusion of the interview, Morgan asked the veteran actor what it was like partying with Tupac over two decades ago. The very question caused Rourke’s face to light up.
“We never saw the daylight,” the actor said after a chuckle. “I mean, I love him, I miss him. Daily. We were very similar. We had a lot of stuff in common and we loved each other, deeply. I think about him all the time. All the time. On a weekly basis.”
