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."

Eszterhas has already won.

Mel has a lot more to lose than Joe. People can call Joe a liar, but it matters far less than people calling Mel an anti-semite.

Jews have a tremendous influence in Hollywood, and this letter further diminishes Mel's chances of ever making a comeback.

In contrast Joe has nothing to lose. His chances of working are about the same as before. (you see?)

If the tape is real (which is likely) then all Joe has to do is leak it on youtube, and Mel will go from being a pariah, to utterly radioactive.

Joe +1 Mel -1

The End

MG made a lot of money working with people he despises. We already know that this man's heart is EVIL, Not only does he hate Jews but he hates the pope and the way he speaks to (there are tapes & many of us heard them) and about his childs mother is disgusting. He is done in Hollywood - no one will associate with him - MR comments are as irrelevant as he is. Who honestly cares what he thinks?

We all have worked with some people that we don't like.
Mel Gibson's heart is not evil. Mel has nothing against Jews, and was the one that put a lot of money into making of The Passion Of The Christ. Jesus a Jew!! Mel Gibson doesn't have anything against the pop. The pope didn't do a thing to Mel for Mel to not like him for. Mel Gibson might not agree 100% with part of his faith, and therefore made his own Church, but still is and will always have Jesus (the Jew) in his heart. If Mel speaks bad about Oksana, it is no worse than anyone else would have said that had been trough what that woman put that man through.
What others in Hoillywood did, and holding hate for this man in their heart, and then came Oksana to put the final death kiss on the dude. These are the EVIL PEOPLE, not Mel Gibson. Who honest cares what you think of Mel Gibson? I know I don't. Go worship someone like Howard Stern, YOU BIG LOSER!!
