"The Wrestler" star was forced to submit -- to airport security.

Actor Mickey Rourke was stopped by airport officials at JFK last week on his was to Bosnia for the Sarajevo Film Festival, a snitch told The New York Daily News.

The Academy Award-nominated actor was forced to wait 10 minutes as security rummaged through his belongings and asked him about the amount of money he was carrying, the paper reported.

Rourke was apparently not amused by the hold-up.

When the actor was finally sprung from the clutches of security and determined not to be a threat, he stormed off with his bags and was flanked by two body guards.
