Hollywood legend Mickey Rooney has died according to an April 6 report. The actor was 93.

TMZ was the first to report the news, but little details about the actor’s passing were unknown. The site reported that Mickey Rooney passed away due to natural causes and that he had been in poor health for “quite some time.”

Mickey Rooney acted for nearly all of his life, beginning at the age of two in his parents vaudeville act before hitting the big screen in his first film when he was 6. Rooney was signed by MGM when he was just 14 and from there his career took off.

However, Rooney was known for more than just his acting talent. The actor was married eight times and had nine children.

It is sad news to learn that Mickey Rooney has passed away, but there is no doubt that the 93 year old lived a full life. More details of his death will likely be available throughout the week.
