Now don’t get me wrong, I happen to really really like Mickey Rourke – Prayer for the Dying is a fantastic movie.  I loved Angel Heart.  Thought Barfly was worth cutting my wrists over it was so depressing.  Pope of Greenwich Village, not bad.  A few others, but Prayer was excellent.  Sin City was fantastic – and not just because of Jessica Alba.  No, I have not seen The Wrestler yet.

Anyway, recently he was badmouthing other actors (which I support him on completely) and said something that struck me in the funniest way.

Mickey Rourke doesn’t respect many other actors.

[Rourke] believes few people in Hollywood are as professional as they let on and claims many of them “suck”.

He said: “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.”

However, the leading man now prefers to keep out of arguments with other actors, and maintains dignity when he doesn’t like a co-star.

He told Parade.com: “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.”

“Pet my chihuahuas”.

I told Cruel Wife what he said and suggested it was a euphemism.

I had totally spaced off the Taco Bell Chihuahua, and she says with that completely in mind:

Special Sauce.

Now that is funny – I don’t care who you are.
