American actor Mickey Rourke is set to play the role of gay British rugby star Gareth Thomas in a new biopic.

Rourke thought Thomas would be the ‘perfect model’ for a movie after reading a report about him ‘coming out’.

Rourke and Thomas met for dinner after Rourke appeared as a guest on Jonathan Ross’ last BBC chat show.

Both their managers are in talks now to make a movie based on the life of Wales’s most-capped rugby union international, reports The Sun.

Rourke wanted to do a movie on rugby since some time but couldn’t, until he read Thomas’ suitable story.

‘The Wrestler’ star Mickey Rourke has butted into the fight between actor Mel Gibson and his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva by calling her a “bitch”.

Grigorieva, 40, had come under verbal attack from Gibson, 54, who said she looked like a “f**king pig in heat”, and Rourke, 57, defended the ‘Mad Max’ star’s rant.

“Sh*t happens,” TMZ.com quoted Rourke as saying.

“I wouldn’t believe everything you hear … you know … I think he’s a good dude, you know. And ah, screw the bitch!” he added.

‘The Wrestler’ star Mickey Rourke has quit his role in the upcoming big screen remake of ‘Conan The Barbarian’.

Rourke, 57, had signed up to play Conan’s father in the new movie alongside former ‘Baywatch’ star Jason Momoa, who will tackle the role made famous by Arnold Schwarzenegger in the 1982 original.

According to Moviehole.net, Rourke will be replaced by ‘Hellboy’ star Ron Perlman, reports the Daily Express.

Perlman was previously involved with the animated Conan TV series, voicing the lead role.

Conan The Barbarian is slated for a 2011 release.

Mickey Rourke has claimed that he once bedded fourteen women in a single night.

The Golden Globe winner said that footballers like Ashley Cole stand nowhere when it comes to the ladies.

The ‘Wrestler star’, 57, said that his marathon night of passion took place in London before he met current love, 24-year-old Russian model Anastassija Makarenko.

“Forget Ashley Cole, his behaviour has nothing on a film star. WAGs get an easy time – they should try living with Hollywood hellraisers,” the Sun quoted him as saying.

“I once spent a weekend in the UK and had 14 women in one night,” he added.

In an interview with WAG and TV host Lizzie Cundy, he said: “British footballers have got nothing on us when it comes to women.”

“If you WAGs knew what Hollywood’s stars get up to you’d think you were married to pussycats,” he added.

It was recently revealed how Chelsea and England star Cole wrecked his marriage with wife Cheryl after having a string of affairs.

Mickey RourkeAfter two failed marriages, Hollywood actor Mickey Rourke has vowed never to marry an actress.

The 57-year-old star was previously married to actresses Debra Feuer and Carre Otis and the separation has left him badly bitten.

“I don”t want to live with an actress again, no matter how they look,” the Daily Telegraph quoted him as telling the Mail on Sunday newspaper.

“I”m working opposite Megan Fox and Eva Green next, and I”m certainly not complaining. But I”ll tell you, once bitten …” he added.

The Wrestler star, who has four pet Chihuahuas, credits his dogs to help him get through the dark times.

“My dogs really helped me get through the dark times. I lost everything at the same time – my wife, my career, my house, my credibility – and all I had left was the dogs plus just two or three people who stuck with me,” he said.

“I was living under the mat – being known and then being known for being out of work, for having fallen from grace. You go and buy a pack of smokes and people say, ””Hey, didn”t you used to be that actor?”” So it was a very shameful place, and the dogs (he has owned eight chihuahuas) were my friends.

“A lot of people you meet out there turn their backs on you once you””re down, but the dogs don””t. The one dog I loved, Loki, died last year, and she is deeply missed but with me in spirit,” he added.

Mickey Rourke2Mickey Rourke has no plans to give up his best actor Oscar dream.

The 57-year-old Rourke, who was nominated for an Academy Award in the best actor’s category this year for his lead role in The Wrestler, says he knew he would not win the coveted trophy as he had angered many in the film industry in the past.

“I knew I wasn”t going to win the Oscar for The Wrestler before I even got there. I knew my reputation would precede me. It”s voted for by people from the movie business and in the past I”ve hacked them all off. I was good at that – it came easily to me,” the Daily Star quoted him, as saying.

He added: “I stupidly said acting wasn”t a job for a real man. I threatened producers, raged at directors, forgot my agent”s name. I really burned my bridges. I”d love to have an Oscar, but don”t you worry – I”ll get mine. If I get the right part and set my mind to it, I will get one.”
