    Default Mickey Rooney Died He Was 93

    Mickey Rooney — the elf-like Hollywood legend whose acting career spanned from silent-era films to the 2011 “Muppets” movie — has died at the age of 93.

    Rooney, who was famously married eight times, died Sunday from natural causes.

    The actor had been ill in recent months and was the victim of elder abuse at the hands of his stepchildren.

    Despite his poor health, Rooney had been working on a film titled “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.”

    Rooney’s acting career was interrupted in 1944 when he entered the military. During his 21 months in the service, Rooney mostly entertained troops in America and Europe.

    Once out of the military, Rooney picked up where he left off, acting in numerous films, including “Breakfast at Tiffany’s,” “Requiem for a Heavyweight,” “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World” and the “Black Stallion.”

    He is survived by his eighth wife, Jan, and nine children.

    Default Re: Mickey Rooney Died He Was 93

    Legendary screen star Mickey Rooney, whose incredible career spanned eight decades, died Sunday night in Los Angeles, according to police. He was 93.

    The 5-foot 2-inch dynamo, a Brooklyn native, acted in hundreds of movies, from dramas, to comedies to musicals.

    He made his stage debut in 1921, at 17 months, in his parents’ vaudeville show.

    His first film role, in “Not to Be Trusted,’’ came five years later. His last was in 2006’s “A Night at the Museum.”

    Between the two, the versatile actor-singer starred in some of America’s most beloved films, including nearly 20 in which he played all-American teenager Andy Hardy.

    Rooney’s first major adult success was opposite Elizabeth Taylor in 1944’s “National Velvet.’’
