Karate Kid -- Swank Kinda Sucked!

3/11/2009 1:46 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Ralph Macchio sounded a little bitter -- after all these years -- that Hilary Swank replaced him in "The Karate Kid."

I will always have love for Ralph Macchio. "Let's do it for Johnny."

He isn't bitter at all in this clip. He just appears to be in a hurry and probably thought your question was lame.

Those are two different "Ralph Macchio"s. Do a wikipedia search on the name, you'll see two different pictures and histories. Nice thought, though! ;)

Ralph is a much better actor. He is the Karate Kid! Not horseface swank!

Wow he looks great for his age. He looks like he could easily be in his early 30s.

He neither expressed bitterness nor did he say that Swank sucked! Come on TMZ...

TMZ I am ashamed of you!!! Ralph Macchio is one of the most decent actors, and private citizen, who ever walked the celebrity walk! Never, ever, has there been even a hint of unpleasantness about him from the time of his youth and now as a highly respectable young man. His parents raised him right! I have watched "My Cousin Vinny" about seven times and have never grown tired of it. He and the rest of the actors were fabulous ! I love them all , equally. Don't ever , ever treat Ralph Macchio as just another Hollywoodite. He is far above many of the others. They can take lessons from him. Thanks for letting me sound off !!!

The video proved that Ralph is a first class person. And the video showed why the TMZ crew are so ghetto trash.

Swank did suck in the "next karate kid", there was no replacing Ralph.

They should bring him back for the remake of the Karate kid and let him train someone like he was.

OMG! I never knew that the Ralph Macchio of Karate Kid was the same Macchio of Marvel! Neat.
