Well, so much for that!
The world was pretty collectively floored when last year, Mickey Rourke praised his co-star in the apparently very terrible (and direct-to-DVD) Passion Play, Megan Fox, as one of the best actresses of our time, but now that the flick is pretty much sinking without a trace, the eccentric actor has HIGHlariously changed his tune!
If you recall, he was quoted as saying:
"I don’t know if a lot of her films have showcased her acting ability more than, say, being action-oriented, but she really stepped up the plate with this one and was very consistent and professional, beyond her years. At 23, I couldn’t do half of what she’s doing."
Well, this was NOT the case last night, when he was interviewed outside a screening of Scream 4.
Here are the HIGHlights:
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.
LOLz! Oh, man! This is pretty amazing, we're not going to lie!
But on the upside, Foxy, Mickey's had a lot of female co-stars in a lot of movies, so we guess there's still a compliment somewhere in there!
There will probably be a Transformers 4 at some point, so maybe if you're on your best behavior, they'll let you come back for that!
