The Sexual History of 30 Rock’s Jenna Maroney and Mickey Rourke, in Pictures

In seven seasons of 30 Rock, we have met Jenna's mother, fans, and drag impersonator/husband. But there is one important figure in her life that we have heard quite a bit about but have never actually seen: Mickey Rourke. At sporadic times, she'd surprised us with a tidbit from their tempestuous and often life-threatening liaisons, like, "Your new vibe is a double-edged sword, much like the kind Mickey Rourke tried to kill me with," or, "I'm gonna have to reinvent you. Break you down completely and build you up from scratch. Just like Mickey Rourke did to me sexually." And yet we've never seen the two together to get a real sense of the magnetism that drew these two hot-headed and -blooded thespians together. With the series ending this Thursday, we recruited illustrator Kyle Hilton to bring to life four of their most torrid flings, whether occurring in a catapult or on a catamaran. Get ready for a love affair that makes Nine 1/2 Weeks look like 3 Men and a Baby.
