Mickey Rourke--Hating on Most Actors

By Christopher Smith

Now that Mickey Rourke has earned his career lift, he's letting people know how he really feels about the business itself.

After succeeding in a major way with "The Wrestler," he now is featured in the lackluster blockbuster "Iron Man 2," and he has revealed that he's not too happy with most of today's young actors and actresses.  Frankly, we can't say that we blame him.

Rourke 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 mentions one unnamed actress in particular:

"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."

So, who is he talking about?  ScarJo or Gwyneth?

Given that ScarJo was perhaps the best part of "Iron Man 2," we're going with Fish Sticks Paltrow.  Your thoughts?

    If you think 'scarjo' was the best part of ironman2, then you have fallen into the same trap rouke was talking about. She's a pretty face but can't act. I've never seen her do anything but stand pretty and deliver her liner. Granted that's all this role called for so I could see how it looks like acting. How dare you say she's better than Paltrow who throughout her career has proven her talent.

    I can't stand Fish Sticks Paltrow. And I thought Iron Man 2 sucked. To each his own, Leshy.
