    Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke joined shoppers queuing to buy a Vladimir Putin t-shirt, at a department store in Moscow's Red Square. The Wrestler star drew big crowds as he bought, and immediately put on the top, which shows the Russian president in a military hat surrounded by flowers. Rourke is dating Russian Model Anastassija Makarenko since 2009, but his latest t-shirt choice may raise eyebrows, with Western leaders imposing sanctions on Russia over the crisis in the Ukraine.
