The actor let loose on the Piers Morgan show.
Tom Cruise is THE star of the moment. From its triumphant passage in Cannes to the incredible success of Top Gun : Maverick, acclaimed by critics and the public, he has become the symbol of the resistance of cinema in theaters, which he defends at every opportunity. In short, everyone loves Tom Cruise. Almost everyone.
Guest of the show “Piers Morgan Uncensored”, Mickey Rourke fired live ammunition at his colleague, calling him “sans importance” when he was questioned about the cardboard of the last Top Gunwhich grossed $1.2 billion at the worldwide box office:
“It means nothing to me, he’s been playing the same damn role for 35 years. I have no respect for that. I don’t care about money or power… What interests me… when I look at the work of Al Pacino or Christopher Walken, or De Niro in his early days, Richard Harris and Ray Winstone, that’s the kind of actor that I envy. Like Montgomery Clift, Brando at the time. All the guys who tried to renew themselves as actors.“
“The guy’s been doing the same effing part for 35 years… I got no respect for that.”
