Mickey Rourke Is Brutally Honest


As you could probably guess by now, Mickey Rourke is not afraid to speak his mind. Unfortunately for producers of his movies, his honesty is not always good for the movie. New York Magazine caught up with Mickey at a Scream 4 screening and basically Mickey said that every movie he has been in for the past year or so has sucked, that he did them all for the paychecks and that Megan fox is a horrible actress. This is of course after he called her a great one previously. To be fair, at the time Mickey called her a great actress, he had not actually worked with her yet, and probably did not realize that she had a boyfriend so would be uninterested in sleeping with a 50 year old boxing damaged, heavily botoxed, crazy dude. Once it was established she would not be sleeping with him, he became honest.

his face is brutal.

i ran across some site where someone commented that mickey had to do 'something' in order to get the role in 'the wrestler'. i wonder what that 'something' was.

Ha ha. Um. What's that saying? In Vino Veritas. That's it. Doesn't he look like someone who smells like a dumptruck? Or an ashtray? Or a barmat? He's pretty disgusting, though I did think he was awesome in The Wrestler.

I'm gonna be brutally honest myself: that tragic baby elephant ad is donkeypunching my soul. Can you just provide links to, like, ironic hipster t-shirts and porno subscription services like every other gossip blogger instead or tragic and graphic pictures that make me feel guilty for being part of the human race?

I mean, I think it's great that Enty is bringing awareness to animal-related issues, but his frequent baconmongering also kinda cancels *that* out. ;-)

Am I alone? I seriously can't be the only one who doesn't even want to glance at the main CDAN screen anymore. :-(

Sorry for the rant. This is the last time I'll mention that ad, I PROMISE.

I still see John from 9 1/2 Weeks, I can't help it.

@Ida - I dunno, I don't mind the ad. If it helps people realize how animals are treated in circuses, so be it. Too often we close our eyes to ugly truths.

I read this interview this morning...the way he got around the Fox quote was sneaky. The interviewer said "But you said she was one of the greatest actresses?" Rourke smirked and said, "That *I* have ever worked with." I suppose meaning he hasn't worked with very many good actresses. Rourke, meet Heigl. I bet you two would get along great.

"Angel Heart" is my all time favorite horror film. For that alone I'm willing to forgive him for almost anything.

MCH said...

@Ida - They bother me too BUT RocketQueen is right.

He's kind of frightening looking but I love that he's so honest. Makes for great reading! :)

@looserdude
Absolutely!
Angel Heart is amazing!

I really can't look at his face. Ack.

No clue what elephant ad your referring to - I'm not seeing it. Use Firefox to browse this site and add Ad Block Plus and you won't see any ads at all!

To be fair...he's kinda right. Megan is a horrible actress. As for his face, it's all damaged from boxing and have to have plastic surgery and stitches. He used to be soooo hot.

blondegossip said...

I kind of love that he'll say whatever. Why not be honest at this point in his life?

Mooshki said...

Has he been brutally honest about how he used to beat the shit out of Carré Otis? He's scum.

The Nightmare Child said...

Shit, I'd totally hang out with him.

anita_mark said...

He sickens me too. I've no patience for men who abuse women.

Nate F. said...

Most gossip sites are praying that Megan dissapears and stays away forver.

Me - I really like her. I don't get the hate. She's not pissing her career away like some other 24 year old "actresses" out there. Megan just completed a movie with Jon Hamm and is co-starring in the "Knocked Up" sequel.

What job has that other one got lined up? That Gotti thing? That's going to fall through for her like everthing else. It's Thursday evening. I'll bet she's gearing up for a drunken night out as I type.

I wish Megan would dump David Silver though. judging from their epic fights - that could happen before the year is over.

Lori said...

I miss 9 1/2 weeks Mickey...he was almost unbelievably hot.

Rose said...

I wouldn't hang out with anyone who would beat the shit out of me. That behavior may not be used on every woman but it's not saved for only one woman.
