In a new interview, Mickey Rourke said that Amber Heard is a "gold digger." The Oscar winner also spoke about his support for Johnny Depp.
Rourke, 69, spoke to Piers Morgan in a candid interview for Piers Morgan Uncensored. The actor said:
"Well, you know, I know Johnny for many years, but I don't really know him intimately."
"All I could say is I was in a situation one time where I got blamed for something that I didn't do. It cost me movie jobs for several years, and it caused a bad reputation."
"And finally, the truth came out, but the truth came out after I lost movies and I lost jobs, and so I felt bad for somebody that is trying to get chopped down by some gold digger, you know."
The 57-year-old journalist asked:
"You think that's what she was?"
Rourke did not hesitate: "Abso- f***ing-lutely. Absolutely."
Talking on Talk TV, Mickey once again stood next to Johnny Depp, with whom he worked on Once Upon A Time In Mexico in 2003.
Previously, the retired boxer and actor told the media that Depp "Doesn't seem like a very violent man to me."
In the same interview from May 2016 for TMZ, Rourke added: "He's a very low key guy, he's always been really low key and a gentleman and not violent."
Rourke was among the first celebrities who supported Depp's hunt for justice.
In 2016, Mickey claimed he did not know much about Amber Heard, saying, "I have no idea, I don't know anything about her. I know nothing about her at all."
He spoke about Depp again: "I think he's a really good guy, always been low key, a gentleman."
During the defamation trial in Virginia, Depp won on all three counts and was awarded $15 million. Amber Heard won on one count and was rewarded $2 million.
The judge reduced Depp's $5 million punitive damages to the state maximum of $350,000.
