At Least Mickey Rourke Is Honest

Back in March, Mickey Rourke called Megan Fox, his co-star in Passion Play, “the best young actress I ever worked with.” Everyone assumed he meant Megan was a good actress but haha, no. At an after-party for Scream 4, NY Mag caught up with Rourke where he clarified that Megan Fox statement. He also spoke honestly about all the terrible movies he’s been in. Which seems like a lot.

Let’s start with horror movies: You a fan?

On what?
If there’s nothing else to watch. I came here to see Harvey. I don’t know nothing about the movie.

What about 50 Cent? He’s hosting.
I haven’t seen him.

You guys are in a movie together, right?
A really bad movie, yeah.

What?! Is it out?
No, it’s so bad it can’t get out.

Tell me why you made it.
For the money.

But you think the movie’s bad.

You have to watch it.

What about your movie with Megan Fox and Bill Murray?
Terrible. Another terrible movie. But, you know, in your career and all the movies you make, you’re going to make dozens of terrible ones.

You called Megan Fox, like, one of the best actresses of all time.
That I worked with [smirk].

That movie’s getting limited release.
That’s because it’s not very good.

I know a good movie we can talk about: your rugby movie.
That’ll be a great movie. We start shooting February.

Mickey can sort of get away with this because he’s Oscar nominated and people already know he doesn’t give a sh*t. He left Hollywood to get his face mangled by boxers and now walks around dressed like an eccentric homeless guy while clutching small, furry animals. In this case a kitten. Honestly, you have to have balls of steel to say something about it to his face.

I probably wouldn’t say anything to his face either, since he used to box.

And Megan Fox and good actress do not belong in the same sentence. She’s a prop, just something to look at while cars explode.
