    Default Mickey Rooney dies at 93

    Mickey Rooney dead at 93



    Mickey Rooney, who spent nearly his entire life in the show business, died today. He was 93.

    Rooney had been in ill health for quite some time.

    He was one of the most famous child actors in entertainment history. He play the role of Andy Hardy in"The Hardy Boys" in 20 films.

    Rooney also teamed up with Judy Garland for "Babes in Arms" which was a huge hit back in 1939.

    He was the first teenager ever to be nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in "Strike Up the Band" in 1940.

    Rooney and Elizabeth Taylor stared in one of the biggest movies of the 40s -- "National Velvet" -- which launched Taylor's career.

    Rooney also starred with Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany's."

    Rooney appeared most recently in "the Muppets" in 2011 with Amy Adams and Jason Segal and "Night at the Museum" in 2006 with Ben Stiller.

    The 5'2" Rooney was married 8 times.

    Rooney's last few years were filled with family strife. He claimed elder abuse at the hands of his step-son Chris Aber and won a $2.8 million judgment against him last year for siphoning money from his accounts.

    93 is a good run and he certainly lived a "full" life. Married to several hotties including Ava Gardner. He must have had something going for him. Vale Mickey

    To be honest, I wasn't sure.

    Didn't his son swindle him out of a lot of money?

    Me too. I'm sadder than I thought I'd be. Was just thinking of him the other day--Mickey and Judy Garland, back in the day. So long ago now. But I'm a 20th century girl, so they'll always be real to me, not just distant memories from another era, another world.

    RIP Mickey, you were a helluva character. And I suspect the only little thing about you was your stature. Ah hahaha.

    Sounds like he lived the hell out of his 93 years. Still sad, though. Loved him. RIP.
