Mickey Rourke

Joe Eszterhas Is Just Bitter

Mel Gibson Didn't Like His Script

Mickey Rourke continues to be Team Gibson all the way in the Joe Eszterhas/Mel Gibson feud -- telling our photog that Joe is just upset that Mel didn't want to make a movie with him.

Rourke -- who would only talk to us for a second straight day if our camera guy bought him ice cream -- said that Eszterhas is just bringing up "old s**t" because he has a personal beef with Mel.

Rourke supports Mel even though he knows it's not the popular thing, telling us, "I know my agent is going to yell at me tomorrow for sticking up for Mel, but ... somebody has to."

So the TMZ photog had to BRIBE you with ICE CREAM to say something positive? Hmmm. I'm guessing you couldnt afford to buy your own? Someone's suckin up hoping that MG does the VIKING flick (MR can play Grandpa Viking)
.
Oh and Mickey, at your age - that hat just looks stupid.

imagine if more people put truth first, like M.R., the world would be a better place
.
the truth will set us all free
.
in this the truth is M.G. is being dogged and most people would not hold up as well under such vile treatment

unfair treatment, as with all things, goes full circle
.
in time it won't matter what is said about M.G. no one will believe these boys in glass houses who cry wolf wolf wolf
.
if M.G. truly didn't like all the people who he is accused of disliking, he sure isn't doing much about it
.
why all the fear over the making of a few movies
.
'hollywood' seems to fear and thusly hate The Christ, Jesus

Rourke said it all: none of this would have come up if Eszterhas' scripts was accepted by Warner and Gibson.

Just a bitter writer just making stuffs up for vindication... a bat-sh*t crazy writer.

Mel said NOT ALL OF IT WAS TRUE, he didnt say NONE OF IT WAS TRUE. Makes ya wonder what part Joe NAILED verbatim doesn't it? Like the SNUFF FANTASY - WHO makes that stuff up (especially when Oksana said Mel threatened to kill her - which was also on the infamous rant tapes - and now JOE confirms it and Kris Herzog has confirmed it).

I like Mel and respect him. Some people try to hid their own evil by exposing others'. Racist? so what, we all have some racism in us in one way or another, GET OVER IT.
