Rooney was famously married to Ava Gardner in 1942 when she was a 19-year-old up-and-coming actress and he was 21, much to the chagrin of MGM studios.
His marriages provided plenty of material for his jokes, with comments including: "Always get married early in the morning. That way, if it doesn't work out, you haven't wasted a whole day.
"I'm the only man in the world with a marriage license made out to whom it may concern."
But in a more sombre moment, Rooney said, "Nobody's proud about having eight wives ... You're supposed to marry your childhood sweetheart and go off into the sunset ... saying, 'It's forever, darling.' It doesn't work out like that and every marriage and every divorce are like a five-car crash."
