The Wrestler star has always been pretty outspoken, and, at 57, he's really not holding anything back.

Mickey Rourke (Photo Agency) He 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 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 now prefers to keep out of arguments with other actors, and maintains dignity when he doesn't like a co-star. He told Parade.com: "It was important for me to put that aside and go, 'You know what? This is a business. If you kiss the right ass 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."

Recently Mickey revealed his distaste for one nameless actress, who he claimed "s**ts herself" whenever filming begins. He said: "If they know their work, fine, if they're don't, f**k 'em. I worked with an actress recently who, despite having a reputation as a 'good actress', s**ts herself when that little red light comes on. She's fooled everyone into thinking she's a lot better than she is.
