This time last year, Mickey Rourke’s forever soulmate Loki (R.I.P.) put in a reincarnation request up in heaven’s administrative offices hoping that he will come back to earth as a psychiatrist who can give his former owner some much needed mental health help. Loki did this after Mickey said that Megan Fox is the best actress he’s ever worked with. Those words numerically translate into 5150, so Loki had a good reason to freak out. But Loki can cancel that request and stay safe up in the cloud bosoms of heaven, because Mickey is taking that shit all back. Sort of. Mickey has come down from the high he got after inhaling the intoxicating words of wisdom that Megan’s brain farts out from time to time.
At the after-party for Scream 4 the other night, Vulture asked Mickey about the movie he did with 50 Cent (“A really bad movie”) and then Megan Fox’s name came up. Mickey finally kept it real.
What about your movie with Megan Fox and Bill Murray?
“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.”
You called Megan Fox, like, one of the best actresses of all time.
“That I worked with [smirk].”
That movie’s getting limited release.
“That’s because it’s not very good.”
I know a good movie we can talk about: your rugby movie.
“That’ll be a great movie. We start shooting February.”
Okay, okay, so the head on Mickey’s neck is still slightly stuck up Megan’s culito, but I have a feeling he’s slowly starting to pull out (UNCLENCH, MEGAN, UNCLENCH!). Maybe! Loki has hope! And speaking of hope, I HOPE that Mickey puts out his own movie review site called Rotten Mickeys where he rates his own movies, because he’s good at that shit. Mickey doesn’t even have to say anything. If one of his movies is terrible, he just has to make the dried salmon grouch face he’s making in the picture above.
