Mickey Rourke is a rebel. And rebels sometimes say things they don’t really mean, like that the upcoming movie Passion Play with Megan Fox isn’t any good. But he didn’t mean it! He recently apologized to Vulture for his shameful comments:

“Hey, guys. When I talked to you, I was at a party. It was loud and crowded, I was in a shitty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow. I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.”

Now the question is if America will ever be able to forgive Rourke for saying these things about Passion Play and our National Princess Megan Fox. We’ll just have to wait and see. Maybe a  cameo appearance in The Hangover 2 would help?

Mickey Rourke is not one to toe the company line. He pretty much just says whatever comes to mind, which makes him way above the amusement curve in Hollywood. And his latest shenanigan is not a disappointment. Here’s what he had to say about his upcoming movie Passion Play:

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.”

He wasn’t done trying to convince you to see Passion Play though. When asked why the movie is being released on a limited basis, he replied “[t]hat’s because it’s not very good.” Well, I’m definitely sold. Unless Rourke’s costar Megan Fox says she liked it, in which case I’ll probably lose interest. (MovieLine)

Oh, Gross!

The good news is that Megan Fox is wearing barely anything, save for a pair of angel wings. The bad news is Mickey Rourke is wearing even less and crawling around on top of her.

Passion Play stars Rourke as a trumpeter who meets Megan Fox‘s dancer character who may be an actual angel. Or a girl who had a really bad dad. At any rate, Rourke wants to free Fox from Bill Murray‘s gangster pimp character, and there-in lies the conflict. The film has had a few setbacks since TIFF last year, when everyone noticed it sucks pretty bad. It will open in limited release in New York and Los Angeles before going to DVD at the end of May.

Not to lump on, but I’m not surprised this movie got made. What surprises me the most is that Bill Murray answered his hotline for this.

Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox Compare Height in ‘Passion Play’ Photo http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mickey-rourke-and-megan-fox-compare-height-in-passion-play-photo/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/mickey-rourke-and-megan-fox-compare-height-in-passion-play-photo/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Mickey Rourke plays a down on his luck trumpet player in his upcoming film Passion Play. Megan Fox plays a circus freak with wings on her back who helps Rourke's character find redemption. They're definitely an interesting pair to cast against one another and the veteran actor has only high praise for his co-star."I think the pleasant surprise was this girl who’s a world-class beauty turned out to be probably the best young actress I’ve ever worked with. At 23, I couldn’t do half of what she’s doing."Really, Mickey? You sure you're just not saying that because of her boobs and stuff?? Look, she's a really pretty girl. We get that. But this is what they do, man. This is what they do!! One minute you're complimenting her and telling her she's better than Evan Rachel Wood and Scarlett Johanssen and Keira Knightley, but then all of a sudden you're helping her move out of her apartment. Don't do it, man. It'll be you and Shia lugging her TV up six flights of stairs while that dude from 90210 plays grab-ass with her. I've seen it dozens of times. (EW)
