Mickey Rourke Improves and Destroys His Oscar Chances, Again


The world's greatest awards campaign continues today, with two brand-new Mickey Rourke interviews. First, a classy, contrite Mickey showed up to Charlie Rose last night, apologizing again for his past fifteen years and thanking Darren Aronofsky for rescuing his career. Lest anyone confuse him for someone outwardly concerned about his Oscar hopes, however, he was also asked by TMZ about his rumored relationship with Courtney Love, and he told them this: "I'd rather be on a deserted island with a gorilla." So basically, the net effect of everything he said yesterday is probably zero. Click for video of the Charlie Rose interview.
