Mickey Rourke confessed he wasn't at Fashion Week to check out the latest trends.

The "Wrestler" star, who turns 57 today, said he was at the Max Azria show to gawk at the leggy ladies parading down the catwalk -- not to admire the latest threads.

When asked how he liked his models, he replied, "Fat."

Rourke was seated in the front row with blonde model gal pal Cheyenne Tozzi -- but said he has no preference when it comes to blondes or brunettes. 

"It depends on what I'm drinking," he quipped to E! News.

As for his beverage of choice, Rourke was equally as nonchalant.

"It doesn't matter," he said.

Rourke reportedly couldn't keep his paws off his new leggy lady at the show, E! News reported.

It was the actor's second fashion show in 14 years, he said, but he wanted to show support for designer Max Azria.

"I like little short guys," he told E! "And he's got a beautiful wife."
