Melbourne: ‘The Wrestler’ star Mickey Rourke thinks many Hollywood actors ‘suck’ at their jobs.
Mickey, who has been promoting ‘Iron Man 2’, says he doesn’t respect many actors and claims that many of them ‘suck,’ reports the Daily Telegraph.
The 57-year-old star 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 dollars 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 who received critical acclaim for his role as Randy ‘The Ram’ Robinson in ‘The Wrestler’ prefers to avoid arguments with other artists and clearly maintains dignity when he doesn’t like the co-star.
"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 told Parade.com.
