Hollywood hellraiser Mickey Rourke credits movie mogul brothers Harvey and Bob Weinstein with reigniting his career, and is determined to make their risk pay off. 

The Angel Heart star is thrilled with the success of recent movies Sin City and Man on Fire, but admits he couldn't have done it without the support of the industry giants.

He tells Hotdog magazine, "Harvey and Bob Weinstein have been great to me. Those guys who I once considered the enemy, I now consider people who are helping me get a career again. 

"It's an opportunity to have a second chance. Right now, there's no room to make one mistake, because I'm not going to go back to where I was--living in this f**king hole and not working."
