Mickey Rourke Doesn't Respect Most Actors

| Filed under: Z ListGwyneth PaltrowMickey Rourke


Now that Mickey Rourke has resurrected his career, he's letting people know how he really feels.

After going from the low budget indie The Wrestler where he "didn't even have a chair to sit in," to this summer's big blockbuster Iron Man 2, he's revealed that he's not too happy with most of today's young actors and actresses.

The outspoken star actor says:

"You can be less than mediocre and be a f*****g movie star. I have respect for very few actors and actresses. Some of them get a lot of acclaim but just because their movie made $200 million at the box office, they still suck. I got no respect for them and I used to let them know it. It was important for me to put that aside and go, 'You know what? This is a business. If you kiss the right a*s and you get lucky on a movie or two, you could last 10 years.' So, now, I just keep my mouth shut and pet my chihuahuas."

He even goes on to talk about an unnamed actress in particular, adding:

"If they know their work, fine, if they're don't, f**k 'em. I worked with an actress recently who, despite having a reputation as a 'good actress', s**ts herself when that little red light comes on. She's fooled everyone into thinking she's a lot better than she is."

LOL! We wonder who he's talking about??

Maybe his Iron Man 2 co-star, Gwyneth??

Hmm, we're just sayin'!

    or scarlet

  2. 2

    LOL he is too funny

  3. 3

    Could be either ScarJo Or Gwen!! Either would be about right!

  4. 4

    Because he's one of the greatest, it's totally okay that he said this. And he is totally right. Look at the biggest stars right now: Twilight kids, Megan Fox and Sam Worthington. But I must say, Rourke is the same guy who said Fox was a great actress, so, I don't know….
    I wonder who he is talking about too! I doubt it is Gwenyth because nobody thinks she is a good actress.

  5. 5

    Wow! Good for him for calling actors and actresses out like that. I think theres a lot of people who are too pansy to do that..he could be talking about gweneth or scarlett..but i mean..he is an actor whos apparently in high demand these days so maybe hes talking about someone else too…just a thought…

  6. 6

    I believe he's talking about Scarlett! I saw the movie and she's a disaster, only got paid to show part of her breasts!

  7. 7

    fuck yeah i love this guy say like it is…fuck these high profile bitches in hollywood, perez suck a fat one.

  8. 8

    This freak will be back in the scrap heap soon enough, but will there be room enough for that big head of his?

  9. 9

    Thank you, Mickey. First for having the B*LLS for telling the truth. Second for helping over the years in chihuahua rescue. And third for revealing the secret to happiness-pet your dogs.

  10. 10

    ScarHo IMO

  11. 11

    Re: Bö!!!SEMICOLON!!!rte Petrarchia – i definitely agree with you there. lots of actresses nowadays are famous for their looks and their mediocare acting. i bet you i'll be twice as good as them but won't land the same roles b/c i'm not as pretty as they are. such a shame.

  12. 12

    He is so right! This is true of singers too. There is a blatant lack of talent in Hollywood, with only a talented few. These days, as long as you look good, the rest doesn't matter.

  13. 13

    my money is on scarjo

  14. 14

    perez this is so old i mean so old. i think he is talking about scar jo because she is way worse the gwenyth IMO

  15. 15

    he's talking about megan fox! they just filmed a movie together but i forget what it's called. i'm sure that is who he is talking about.

  16. 16

    This is coming from the guy who said that Megan Fox was the best actress he'd ever worked with.

  17. 17

    amen to that - he's totally right. today's actors suck!

  18. 18

    I agree. There are a handful of excellent actor/actress making films these days. The rest are mediorce at best. Just look and Sandy's Oscar win for proof. Nice gal but so-so actress.

  19. 19

    Re: #Cejers

    Agreed. Scarlett and Gwyneth are both mediocre talents.

  20. 20

    He could also be talking about Marisa Tomei. They worked together in THE WRESTLER. She did win an Oscar for MY COUSIN VINNY, which I didn't think was all that great of a performance, at least not Oscar worthy.

  21. BD4ME says – reply to this


    Neither. Iron Man 2 was not filmed *recently*. That film he did with Megan Fox, however, is. So yeah, Megan Fox. She sucks, what else is new? He didn't even any (well, not many) scenes with Gwyneth.

  22. Laury says – reply to this


    I think he's talking about Scarlett Johansson. Bitch got lucky, she's really not that great an actress, just a cute girl with big boobs.

  23. 23

    ..or even Evan Rachel Wood…was in same movie.

  24. 24

    HE IS DEFINITELY TALKING ABOUT SCARLETT JOHNANSSON!! nobody thinks megan fox is a good actress so it can't be her and i don't think its Gwyneth could shes not exactly a young actress.

  25. 25

    I'm not mad at with you Mick! Do the damn thing!

  26. 26

    For some reason I think he's talking about Meghan Fox they did just make a indie film together. I don't know lucky guess

  27. 27

    Hmm…he's also worked with Winona Ryder & Diane Lane "recently." LOL, I want to know who it is.

  28. 28

    actually, he is right about the total industry. look at who you kiss asses with. THEY ALL SUCK. GaGa, alot of packaging. If you get the right packaging at the right time, you make millions. look what bjorn wore to the oscars years ago, everyone went NUTS. It is tame to what gaga wears, but the fashion industry, being the hypocritical jerks they are, are tripping over themselves, cumming. asses. paris, kim k. nicole richie. NOT ONE OUNCE OF TALENT. but thanks to having 300 channels on tv and the internet and perez, we see them, TOO MUCH. Mickey is right and he is right, just keep petting those dogs. most of us agree with him.

  29. 29

    He's talking about Scarlett, she's awful. Everybody already knows how bad Gwyneth is.

  30. 30

    Awards have been completely bastardized by bestowing them to phonies like Al Gore or a Nobel to Obama….lol lol lol.
    Sandy getting an award for basiclly being nice and around a long time for a so-so performance in a made for tv movie. Why? Not a Bette Davis/Katherine Hepburn or Cary Grant/Humphrey Bogart in sight. I used to love going to the movies. It's a sad state of affairs much like the music industry.
    BTW, what did you do to yourself?
    You're a hot mess but you still look better than Chastity Bono.

  31. 31

    This guy is a blast! He says out loud what a lot of people are thinking quietly. I love it.

  32. 32

    looks like carrot-top in 10 years

  33. 33

    OMG Perez! You are such a judgmental trash talking frumpy bitch. You dog Gwyneth Paltrow at every turn yet, Ive never heard one word mean come out of her mouth. Do you ever wake up and realize that the life and livelihood that you've built here on the internet is nothing more than fluff and gossip about someone else. Who are you? What is your contribution to the world? Or are you here just to take up space and air? I'm sure Paltrow has done more than you have. And then you wonder why people see gay people as caricatures and less than? You are a prime example of a cartoon…whiny, one-dimensional. There is a place for fat lumpy nasty lonely trash-talking bitches like you…HELL!

  34. 34

    NO he came out in public praise for Megan Fox in another interview. Can't be her.

  35. 35

    Maybe he's talking about Megan Fox? Didn't he just finish working on a movie with her or something?

  36. 36

    It's totally Scar JO

  37. 37

    This gentleman is crazy, but he's totally correct in this instance when he states that nearly all of these asshole Hollywood shitheads are talentless. 99% of all movie actors have maybe enough talent and intelligence to be cleaning gutters or digging ditches….not making millions of dollars. However, those really to blame are the mindless morons that actually spend dollars to go see the worthless trash "films" featuring our most treasured actors. That means YOU, dumbfuck, yeah you reading this right now. YOU are the problem because you are so stupid.

  38. 38

    Uhm. See I think Mickey Rourke has piss for blood but when it comes to the first remark, it is true that actors are more applauded for public accessibility rather than any sort of talent or originality.

    Look at Will Smith. Everyone likes him apparently, his movies make a ton of money but nobody really *loves* Will Smith, nobody's really *obsessed* with Will Smith, not genuinely because he's boring. He works with boring directors on boring movies with boring scripts and about boring things that people like to see on the silver screen when they're bored.

  39. 39

    'Goop' , or 'Crap', or whatever that skank Paltrow goes by, is, again, a spoiled little rich kid who thinks her shit don't stink, BUT, her farts give her away. Again, the hubby had to move out to stand her. Lord help those freakishly named kids - Apple, anyone ?

  40. 40

    UMM>>> Scarlet ( which I'm sure is her given name)
    Tell em Mick… All you really need is a eating disorder, long legs, big soup coolers, and no brains….

  41. 41

    wow, he just won me over big time! well said! :D

  42. 42

    I agree with you Mickey

  43. 43

    Scarlet, its gotta be. She was awful in iron man 2.

  44. 44

    Geez Mickey, lighten up! They're just movies

  45. 45

    Haha i have never liked gwenith.. i've always thought she was a fugly ass shitty actress w/ entitlement issues… i hope that's who he's talking about!

  46. 46

    Mickey is a wife beating asshole, ugly as hell and a total moron who should have been left to rot .

  47. 47

    DEFINITELY SCAR JO! Gwenyth was amazing in Shakespeare in Love.. I'm pretty sure she is comforconfident in her abilities… plus she was in Iron Man 1 so why would she ever be nervous to perform? It has to be Scar Jo he's talking about. I mean, In He's Just Not That Into You Scarlett was PAINFUL to watch.

  48. 48

    Its had to have been Scarlett Johansen. She is AWFUL. Everyone in the theater said she was awful too. She is mechanic and is nowhere near the calibur of Gwyneth. I know you love to bash Gwyneth, but she's actually really good, and she shines in Iron Man 2.

  49. 49

    Scarlett makes sense because she has admitted to her stage fright, HOWEVER, Mickey and her didn't have any scenes together in Iron Man 2. If you know how movies are made you probably know that it's pretty doubtful he was talking about her. You never know though.

  50. 50

    i still cant get over his face i wont go see a movie if he is in it just sickens me

  51. 51

    If you think about it, it's ScarJo.

  52. BD4ME says – reply to this


    He didn't have any scenes with ScarJO, nor Gwynnie. So, there goes that theorie.

  53. 53

    i agree with him look at Robert Pattinson Kristen stewart taylor lautney they only hired them cuz they were in twilight. and their acting SUCK!! same with megan fox

  54. 54

    Perez, quit or get a better organized minion - that bit about the actress who shits herself has already been published here a little while ago. I honestly don't know why the hell I keep coming back here…

  55. AndyG says – reply to this


    he looks like a hot dog that was put in the microwave for too long! eeeeh.

  56. 56

    good for u mickey always been a fan of mickey guy says whats on his mind hollywood is so fake and phony im tired of hearing all these actors kissing each others ass on interviews and not saying what they really mean mickeys always been a good interview says whats on his mind and after reading this hes totally 100 percent right

  57. 57

    I'm so glad someone in the industry finally tells it like it is! He's 100% right. Take Kristen Stewart, for example. She had the right connections to get her started (father- television producer; mother- script supervisor), landed in a few movies that would make money regardless of her presence, and now she's a working "actress" with films lined up?! The simple fact that girls like Kristan Stewart and Scarlett Johansson claim they have 'stage freight' and/or appear awkward and uncomfortable on the red carpet PROVES that they have no business being actresses in Hollywood! Being uncomfortable and shy are the exact opposite traits of any good actor or actress. It's a shame too, because I'm sure there are plenty of more talented people trying hard to make it in Hollywood…but they never will, because they don't have the right look or the right connections.

  58. 58

    i was thinking Scarlett when he said that……but yeah i do agree you just get a big box office and youre a good actor like those twilight kids

  59. 59

    Well he's right. You hear that Megan Fox!

  60. 60

    I totality agree with him.

  61. 61

    Or maybe Scarlett? She's received a hell of a lot more praise than Gwyneth has.

  62. 62

    Y A C K !!!!!!!!!!!!!

  63. 63

    Third degree burn victim

  64. 64

    ATTENTION PEREZ HILTON,,,, ARE YOU KIDDING?! No matter how much you may dislike Gwenyth's outfits , she at least has some type of depth of character and magnetism as an actress that is rare in todays "celebrities. Can you imagine someone such as oh, MEGAN FOX, being able to play a character like Margot (royal tennebaums), in any believable way?! . He is CLEARLY tocking about MEGAN FOX. she may have the "looks" of a celebrity, and the picture perfect face/outfits/body,.. but she does not have the intrigue or the brains! SHE IS NOT A TALENTED ACTRESS AND SHE HAS EVEN ADMITED IT In Interviews!!! We will all laugh at gilded butterflies, and guess what WE ARE LAUGHING. AT HER, she is just a gilded butterfly, just a pretty face, and she was able to achieve fame because of the current standards that reward one dimensional snooze fests, that can give good face and take good pics! lolz someone had to say it. peace n luv. bye bye. I luv PReZ though! bye bye

  65. 65

    so fucking true

    they are just gifted mimics and the director tells them what to do

    glenn close and fatso winslett think they are "artists" and very very special

  66. 66


  67. 67

    I think hes talking about Evan Rachael Wood

  68. 68

    It could be Megan Fox.

  69. 69

    isn't the whole point of an actor/actress to fool everyone into thinking they are "better" at things their character's do than they are in real life? just sayin

  70. 70

    Point taken and observed, but I pet my cat.

  71. 71

    It's gonna be ScarJo…she really wasn't that good in Iron Man 2.

  72. 72

    He's talking about Megan Fox. They just finished a film together. Maybe you should do your research Perez. Gwenyth Paltrow is a polished actress with an Oscar under her belt.

  73. 73

    has to be gwyneth!!

  74. 74


  75. 75

    It's gotta be Gwen, that woman has an oscar that she didn't deserve by a long shot!

  76. 76

    FYI Scarlett and Mickey aren't even in a scene together in Iron Man 2 so he can't be talking about her.

  77. 77

    Re: mathisol – You must be 12 years old judging by your comment.

  78. 78

    My guess is that he was talking about Gwyneth. Scarlett doesn't have a great reputation to begin with. People generally think of Gwyneth as a good actress but not Scarlett. And considering how Gwyneth acts in her blogs, interviews, etc., it would make sense.

  79. 79

    Re: alyssalovesyou – Hahah! Megan Fox does NOT have a reputation of being a good actress. I bet he is done more movies other than IronMan, so who knows?

  80. @v@ says – reply to this


    Re: CatAttack – Sometimes, but I still love Will Smith in that scene in Independence Day when he and the alien crash and he pulls it out and berates it. Love that scene to death.

  81. 81

    Real talent is just something you don't see anymore.

  82. 82

    Who is tha freak to speak about anyone? C´mon! Two years ago , Scarlet or Paltrow were working while nobody knew about this prick. He is disgusting and not a gentleman , that´s for sure. For me , should go back to boxing and be punched in the face like he used to do…

  83. 83

    He didn't have any scenes with Gwyneth…yet another article you write without thinking perez.

  84. @v@ says – reply to this


    He doesn't need to start burning any bridges again, but at least he didn't name her. If he keeps to his own acting, he might last another 5 minutes. He has this tendency..and why didn't he help the girl with her confidence/approach instead, as he was experienced enough to see it, and make a lifelong friend?

  85. 85

    He is ABSOLUTELY right!

  86. 86

    He's talking about Megan Fox. He just worked with her and another blog quoted him with being unimpressed by her.

  87. T-RAY says – reply to this


    He is obviously talking about Scarlet, Gwyneth is amazing!

  88. 88

    I want Mickey Rourke to grab me by the hips and bang the hell out of me!!!! I bet he's one helluva angry f%cker!!!
