You know how when it’s noisy at a party and you get cranky, you just start trash-talking the stars of Transfomers? If we’re feeling ornery, you wouldn’t believe the nasty things we’ll say about Shia LeBouf. Now after Rourke insulted Megan Fox and the “terrible” movie they have coming out this week, Mickey Rourke apologized for Passion Play insults he spouted to New York Mag. “When I talked to you, I was at a party,” he explained on Thursday. “It was loud and crowded, I was in a s—ty mood and I was trying to get rid of your reporter. Mitch [Glazer, Passion Play director] is one of my best friends since we were kids. I loved working with him and would do it again tomorrow.” We’re sure once Mitch hears your excuse, he won’t be able to say no! Or he won’t be able to say no because the film doesn’t open until May 6. Either way, that movie still looks awful.
No mention on whether Mickey regrets his comments about 13, his movie with 50 Cent, so we’re guessing the volume of the crowd didn’t affect his perception that it’s “a really bad movie.” Says the star of The Wrestler, “I don’t know why I said that stupid shit. I love Mitch, I love Megan. My bad.” We actually appreciate Rourke’s honesty. In the future, he shouldn’t talk to reporters unless he’s in the middle of a quiet, empty space. A drained municipal pool, perhaps? The Grand Canyon? We’d hate to see what Mickey would say if someone managed to corner him at the Olympics.
