Former Boxer Mickey Rourke called Tom Cruise “irrelevant” in light of his recent success with “Top Gun: Maverick,” and also insulted him.
That means nothing to me, Rourke said. For 35 years, Tom Cruise has played the same role. I don’t respect him at all.
“When I see Al Pacino or Christopher Walken work, or De Niro’s early work and Richard Harris and Ray Winstone, that’s the kind of actor I want to be.”
On a talk show with Piers Morgans, Morgan asked to Rourke, ” When you see someone like Tom Cruise grossing a Billion Dollars with Top Gun: Maverick, What do you think about that “? To which Rourke replied:
” That doesn’t mean sh*t to me, the guy has been doing the same role for 35 Years”
He also called out Amber Heard a Gold Digger, “I felt bad for somebody trying to get chopped down by some gold-digger.” Rourke slamed Amber Heard as a “gold-digger” after she lost her court case against Johnny Depp.
