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.
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'!
