    Mickey Rooney is back!


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     montebubbles told me she caught Rooney at a pre-Oscar event: 'I was told, there's Mickey Rooney and we grabbed our camera and microphone and hurried to where he was and waited. He only took questions from two of us and I was one of the lucky two.We were wound up and he knew it. Mickey Rooney, there before us! I was so shocked at seeing Mickey Rooney and I had to give thought as to what one question I would ask that people would want to hear. All I could think of, because there was Mickey Rooney, I'm young, a student and that's the question that popped out of my mouth. '
    - hhanks, CNN iReport producer

    While age and illness may have slowed Mickey Rooney down, the bright light that Mickey Rooney was, still is, as Mickey Rooney will always be Mickey Rooney.

    Mickey Rooney at any event, even a pre-Oscar event is something to celebrate as he has seldom been at any events for years.

    Mickey Rooney is at work again as he is a force of nation, and during his lifetime nothing has kept him offscreen for long. Joell Posey caught up with Mickey Rooney and this question was asked at Roger Neal Style Hollywood Beauty and Couture Suite celebrating the 86th Academy Awards.
