The woman who tamed Mickey Rourke: Actor is still going strong with Russian model Anastassija Makarenko

Over the years, Mickey Rourke has developed somewhat of a reputation as a ladies' man.

But after enjoying the company of many gorgeous females on the awards circuit for The Wrestler a couple of years ago, it looks like the actor may have finally settled down.

The 58-year-old is still going strong with Russian model Anastassija Makarenko, 24, after nearly two years together.

Onlookers may have thought Rourke had moved on after seeing the pair walking through Greenwich Village - however it appears Makarenko had simply cut off her long locks in favour of a short crop.

The couple met on a photoshoot in 2009 and are now living together in New York.

He said in an interview last year: 'She's a gift from heaven.

'Obviously she's a very beautiful woman. But she's got the biggest heart, she's got a great family, she's really close to her mother and father – they're great people.

'I wouldn't trade her in for 20 Academy Awards.'

While the couple are living in domestic bliss, Rourke insisted there were no plans to get engaged.

When asked by a photographer if he planned to wed, he said: 'I'll never get married.'

Rourke's reluctance to wed is understandable following his two failed marriages to actresses Debra Feuer and Carre Otis.

He recently downsized his Manhattan loft for a duplex apartment in the West Village.

Since a career resurgence thanks to The Wrestler - for which he won a Bafta in 2009 - Rourke is in demand again in Hollywood.

He recently wrapped filming on Greek epic Immortals and The Courier.

He's also signed for numerous future projects including The Blind Bastard Club, Seven Psychopaths, Mississippi Wild and The Expendables 2.
