Mickey Rourke?! Too old for me, Evan Rachel Wood says
Mickey Rourke has been feeling a whole lotta Hollywood love recently — but his “Wrestler” co-star Evan Rachel Wood wants to make clear that none of it, physically, is coming from her.
Rumors that Wood, 21, and Rourke, 52, were involved in a romantic relationship were fueled by reports that they were seen kissing at a Screen Actors Guild awards party in Los Angeles at the weekend.
But on Thursday she told Rolling Stone magazine that she was distraught at the rumors.
“Im upset because I feel disrespected by the press and by Mr. Rourke,” she said. “Just because I’m single doesn’t mean that you can take advantage of me. It’s unfair that the performances might suffer because of all these distractions.”
Wood, whose two year romance with rocker Marilyn Manson, 40, ended in November last year added; “I’m not attracted to him (Rourke). He’s too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will.”
