Celebrated womaniser Mickey Rourke would give up his wild lifestyle to settle down with just one partner - as long as it was ex-wife Carre Otis.

The actor insist his lothario behaviour is just a way to take his mind off WILD ORCHID co-star Otis, to whom he was married for six years, because their divorce in 1998 still haunts him.

He says, "We do crazy things to numb the pain. If I had my pick I'd be with one lady. Why do you think I have seven dogs? Because I can't sleep in my bed without them. Because the bed's too big."
