Ever since Evan Rachel Wood was seen with Mickey Rourke, there have been rumors that the two were dating. This, of course, isn’t true. Mickey Rourke is a monster and Evan Rachel Wood is currently suffering from an identity crisis which makes them incompatible. That and Rachel says they’re just friends who bonded on the set of their new film, The Wrestler.

“Spread the word – I’m not dating Mickey Rourke,” Wood told PEOPLE at Sunday’s Hollywood Life 3rd annual Behind the Camera Awards in Hollywood. “Everybody thinks we’re dating and we’re not.”

“Mickey and I bonded while shooting The Wrestler and we became friends, but nothing more. I guess, because of my recent break up, I will be linked to many people, but I am not interested in pursuing a relationship at this point in my life. Any such rumor should not be taken seriously.”

The other night, paparazzi asked Rourke about the rumor while he was hanging out with a hot chick. He denied it as well and added, “Tell that faggot that said all this shit in the paper, I’d like to break his fucking legs.”

Yikes. You’d think Rourke would be more sensitive to the gays and not use the word “faggot” in such a derogatory manner since he’s inspired, fashion wise, by the Village People. Hot pink underwear underneath unzipped, tight leather pants? That’s just flaming.
