Mickey Rourke: Actors Suck

Posted: Updated:

Mickey Rourke, who is promoting 'Iron Man 2,' gives an outspoken interview in this weekend's Parade magazine. Here are some excerpts:

On independent films:
"I'd just as soon do a big-budget movie as an independent one. Sometimes the independent movies can get a little too arty-farty. You watch the IFC Channel and you want to throw up."

On doing a blockbuster:
"I'd just come off working on The Wrestler, which had no budget and I didn't even have a chair to sit in. I remember the first day on Iron Man 2 I said, 'Can I have a cappuccino,' and they said, 'Which kind would you like?'"

On his feelings for movies stars:
"You can be less than mediocre and be a f--ing 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."
