Which Best Picture Nominee Did Mickey Rourke Hate?

Mickey Rourke is prepping his own sports movie, but that doesn't make him an automatic fan of the genre. A TMZ cameraman caught up with Rourke this week as the actor left the gym and peppered him with inane statements to coax Rourke into some conversation ("Was today a legs day or an upper-body day? Legs days are, like, the worst! Why are legs so boring?") Finally, Rourke growled out an unlikely threat: "If you ask me any more questions, you know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna tie you to a chair and make you watch Moneyball all fucking night." Finally, Mickey Rourke slams a movie that he isn't in!
