Rourke defends ‘beautiful’ Fox

Mickey Rourke is convinced Megan Fox is unfairly criticized over her acting skills “because she’s beautiful”.

The Wrestler star has teamed up with the 23 year old for new movie Passion Play, and the actor admits he has been astounded by Fox’s talent.

And Rourke is adamant the Transformers star is a clean-living, promising actress who is not given the recognition she deserves because of her good looks.

He says, “She doesn’t drink or do drugs. People say bad stuff about her and how she can’t act but they only say that because she’s beautiful. She’s the most talented actress I’ve worked with. When she cries in a scene, I get emotional.”
