Mickey Rourke didn’t hold back while sharing his thoughts on Tom Cruise during a new interview with Piers Morgan.
The actor made some brutally honest comments after being asked for his opinion on Cruise’s summer blockbuster “Top Gun: Maverick”, which grossed over $1bn.
“The guy’s been doing the same effing part for 35 years… I got no respect for that.”

“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.”
Asked if he believed Cruise was “a good actor”, Rourke added, “I think he’s irrelevant, in my world.”
