Mickey Rourke Praises Megan Fox

Monday, February 8, 2010

COMEBACK king Mickey Rourke has heaped praise on Megan Fox — insisting she’s Hollywood’s “best young actress” after the Transformers star impressed him on the set of their movie Passion Play.

Mickey says Megan was a total professional while making the flick, in which she plays a “circus freak” with wings who is under the control of a ruthless gangster and is eventually rescued by Rourke’s character.

“She is the best young actress I’ve ever worked with,” said Rourke. “I don’t know if a lot of her films have showcased her acting ability more than, say, being action-oriented, but she really stepped up to the plate with this one and was very consistent and professional, beyond her years.

“At 23, I couldn’t do half of what she’s doing.”
