“That doesn’t mean s*it to me,” Rourke replied. “The guy’s been doing the same effing part for 35 years. I’ve got no respect for that.” 

The Oscar nominee continued, “I don’t care about money and power. I care about when I watch Al Pacino work and Chris Walken and De Niro’s early work and Richard Harris’s work and Ray Winstone’s work. That’s the kind of actor I want to be like. Monty Clift and Brando back in the day.”
