Mickey Defends Megan

Mar. 1, 2010by: Cherry Liquor

Well, I'm slightly taken aback by this news. You have to understand, I'm one of the people who have been on the Megan Fox backlash train - but not without the knowledge that I know what her acting is like since I've actually watched all of the movies she's been in, so I'm basing my derogatory opinion of her acting talent on what I've seen her produce thus far, proof is in the pudding, so to speak - but I'm also one of the people who stood by Mickey Rourke when he was in a low place and people were tossing his potential to the side. I hoped for a "comeback" and was happy when it finally happened for the actor.

Well, now Rourke is coming out to support his co-star of the upcoming film, PASSION PLAY. Says Mick, "People say bad stuff about her and how she can't act, but they only say that because she's beautiful," the actor told the New York Daily News. "She's the most talented actress I've worked with. When she cries in a scene, I get emotional."

Well, I'm stumped. I guess if Mickey says so, I'll wait to see PASSION PLAY and see if that's where Megan changes my mind. One thing's for sure, she better be grateful that she's got Rourke in her corner and not speak ill of him like the others *cough*Hitler Bay*cough* who have vouched for her in the past.

Well played, Mickey.

I've defended Megan Fox on this board, and by the way this article is quite respectful as opposed to the bashing some sites are prone to. I don't agree with him, but I find it rather classy of a guy who's taken a beating from the media to defend someone who's also taken an unfair beating. I don't agree with Rourke on her acting prowess, Mick (She's very good in Jennifer's Body, though), but I haven't seen the movie. Still, it's hard to think she's as good as Evan Rachel Wood and Keira Knightley

Still, it's hard to think she's as good as Evan Rachel Wood and Keira Knightley (who he also spoke well of). And who knows? I never would have guessed Knightley would give a performance as good as it was in PRIDE AND PREJUDICE after PIRATES. Still, this is a classy move, Mick, plain and simple. Good for you, and I hope you ride this comeback out to where you give us another SIN CITY, another WRESTLER, and another ANGEL HEART.

She isnt a bad actress at all. Her emotional scene in Jennifer's Body is surprising good.

I haven't seen anything from Megan Fox that would prove her talent is as big as Rourke says it is but then, I've only seen her in a Michael Bay movie. That's the thing with pretty actresses: they have to go through a lot of shitty girlfriend parts before they get a good role.

I don't think she'll ever be great but I'm open to change my mind in the future.

I would also like to add, while I thought she was great in Jennifer's Body (yes, I did like her performance better than Amanda Seyfried's), I don't consider her to be as good as some of the other actresses Mickey Rourke has worked with. Keira Knightley and Evan Rachel Wood are better in my opinion. The script for Domino might not have been very good but Keira's acting was excellent. And I wouldn't say Megan Fox is the most AMAZING actress ever but I think she's a lot better than people give

And I wouldn't say Megan Fox is the most AMAZING actress ever but I think she's a lot better than people give her credit for. How many movies have you really seen her in? Transformers 1 and 2 were dumb action movies, in How to Lose Friends and Alienate People she played a dumb actress who's only requirement is to act confused. I thought the writing in Jennifer's Body was a huge step up from those movies and while I thought she was hilarious, you just might not have liked her character or thought it wasn't a stretch for her, but I thought it was very talented comedic acting. But, we haven't seen her in a drama yet. If Mickey gets emotional when she cries, maybe we will too. I think the reason for the hate is because she's MORE popular for being hot than anything else.

No I think a lot of the criticism stems from the fact that she's deified as the supreme goddess when there are much better looking women out there barely getting any notice.

"People say bad stuff about her and how she can't act, but they only say that because she's beautiful".

Two things wrong with that statement. 1: Thus far Fox has demonstrated absolutely no talent for acting whatsoever. 2: Personally, I don't think unattractive covers it. She looks like she's made of plastic, is buried under make up that appears to be a foot thick and seems to be both hilariously stupid and a bitch. I wouldn't go near her with someone else's cock.

He was obviously loaded when he said this.. In no way has she ever done anything as good as Evan Rachel Wood or Marisa Tomai in The Wrestler..

People say that she can't act because she's beautiful? No, people say she can't act, because she can't act! All the movies I've seen her in she's failed to turn in a good performance. "Jennifer's Body" was awful and the only good thing about the movie was Amanda Seyfried. Give us a break Mickey.

See, I think the same thing too. I don't think the hate is tied into her being beautiful, rather more with her stupid statements she makes off screen and then the lousy acting on-screen. But I also stand by Mickey, so I'm conflicted.

I've always thought Megan Fox had potential as an actress, even since Tranformers. I suspected if given the right material, she'd be great. I loved Jennifer's Body, it was one of my favorite movies last year, and I thought Megan Fox did a wonderful job, she delivered her lines perfectly, and was hilarious.
