Wow what a scumbag:

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6957761/Shocking-casting-couch-claims-surface-late-actor-Mickey-Rooney.html

"According to a 2015 biography, Mickey had an illicit affair with Elizabeth Taylor on set of National Velvet when she was just 14 and he was 24."

"Craig apparently heard countless stories of Mickey lining up 'auditions' with aspiring young actresses 'for roles that didn't exist'.

As Craig puts it, 'Mickey almost wore out the casting couch'. "

Girl Crazy for the film? With Judy Garland, on its IMDB trivia page it says filming went way over schedule.

Drewholtaus said...

This is really no big deal since Louis b meyer and the studio heads had the secretary pool serving up blow jobs every afternoon after lunch at the office.

gauloise said...

National Velvet didn't start fliming until 44, they churned them out fast in those days.

Mickey Rooney. The ancient Egyptians had condoms. Why couldn't he?

Drewholtaus said...

Howard hughes was ten times worse. Didnt he keep eva Gardner as a virtual sex slave for years according to the dm

MichiganMama59 said...

I thought Mickey, too!

And Liz Taylor at 14 was like most women at 34.

Tricia13 said...

He had a Napoleanic Complex...
I still laugh whenever describes something exceptionally small with him. Ex: we are at dinner and she orders a wine that’s is more like a shot and she goes”so what’s with the Mickey Rooney glass”??

Brayson87 said...

@Michigan, So you're saying really mature 14 year olds are kosher? ;)

Drewholtaus said...

Howard hughes scouted all of the best tail and kept them at his house under lock and key like hefner. Rooney just got the scraps and leftovers

Tricia13 said...

*whenever My Mom(point of the story lol)

Drewholtaus said...

Hughes would move the moms in to his complex when he found the freshest models fron the agencies or picked them out of ad campaigns. Then he would mold them under lock and key

kiki71 said...

Only way Rooney could get P*ssy forced or not was because of who he was and what he did. Those types are the worst. The geeks and undesirables with too much power int their hands. Get zero on their own merit with women AND have an axe to grind with otherwise having been or apt to be rejected on themselves alone.

Brayson87 said...

@kiki, You just described half of Hollywood ๐Ÿ˜…

Vita said...

Agree Mickey Rooney! Not sure what movie, but ugh! Not only the casting couches and brothels, but amidst all of that, he also had some really stunning wives! Studio arrangements? Personality to end all personalities (though I thought Id heard Napoleon Complex in all aspects of personality)? Really love these Old Hollywood tales!

Vita said...

Love the mom story, Tricia!๐Ÿ˜ so sweet!

Vita said...

Kiki71-- "undesireables," LOL ๐Ÿ˜‚

Jon said...

So he was eating out whores and got the herp?

Drewholtaus said...

Eva gardner was stunning! She was the love of many mens lives...

Tricia13 said...

Thanks Vita:) i honestly use it often without thinking. Can apply to almost anything....straws, chairs..other things๐Ÿ˜‰

Vita said...

LOL! Im sure it could!๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜ฒ๐Ÿ˜‚

Rosie riveter said...

+1million
We have a couple of those here at CDAN
Its absolutely true

kiki71 said...

@Brayston half of Hollywood is eye candy that fans probably WANT to sleep with . the other half yes are ugly troll decision makers like Weinstein.

Thy Unveiling said...

Apparently people didn't think about potential consequences of loose "love" back then. I found an old copy of The Happy Hooker book a couple years ago and was floored by all the unprotected and oral sex. By/with "professionals", at that. It seems back then all anyone thought about was unwanted pregnancies. I'd say "Musta been nice", but a mouth (or vag) full of herp (and a lifetime of worrying about future outbreaks) doesn't seem anymore appealing than HIV or AIDS.

Thy Unveiling said...

And then there's Steve Buscemi ๐Ÿ˜‰

Amartel said...

Who else could it be other than Mickey Rooney? One of the munchkins?

Michelle said...

But Steve Buscemi is a legend. He apparently helped out with the NYC fire department after 9/11 as a volunteer. He used to be a fireman.

Drewholtaus said...

Howard Hughes wasnt bad looking way back in the day, problem is he was batshit crazy

Pearl said...

Definitely a legend. He also narrated an HBO doc about NYC firefighters that was really good. A good person and a good actor.

texasrose said...

Saw a teaser saying Rooney 'wore out' the casting couch with young actresses for non existent roles.

GentleBreeze said...

Look at a couple of Rooney's old movies and you can SEE a sore on his lip. Knowing of his sex life, even I thought it was a herpes sore. Why they didn't cover it? Wouldn't look right in B/W?

Hummingbird said...

What is the stigma with herpes? Over half of the population has it. HSV 1 is on the mouth. HSV 2 is on the genitals. He was kissing too much and had to halt production?

Notagoodscreenname said...

You can get either type of hsv on your genitals and your mouth.

Notagoodscreenname said...

I feel like there’s a lot of that happening now too. The number of cheaters I hear of getting their side pieces pregnant astounds me.

kiki71 said...

@ Pearl a good person other than screwing underage girls and casting couch women. Yeah a real gem because he narrated a documentary. Seriously?

kiki71 said...

Oops @ Pearl. you mean Buscemi. Thought you were talking about Rooney. Buscemi is a national treasure!

Pearl said...

@kiki, I'm on the mobile version so the replies are nested, I was replying to Michelle. Yes, definitely meant Buscemi! :D

~Geth~* said...

What aboit the +1000 cases of herp contracted as a result of this year's Coachella event? There has been a huge increase in reported cases in the Coachella/SoCal area over the past few weeks. Hipsters beware: Band t-shirt: $50. Bottled water:$10. A box of condoms and a denal dam?: Priceless.

Unknown said...

Buscemi, is he the one with funky teeth....always wondered why he didn't get them fixed.

There's a film camera-move called a "Mickey Rooney" - its a little creep.
