Evan Rachel Wood not dating Mickey Rourke
The Juice* has turned into rumor control today, with word from Evan Rachel Wood that no, in fact, she's not having a fling with The Wrestler costar Mickey Rourke, because, well, for the reasons you'd think. And thanks for making her feel awful by saying they're together, guys.
"I'm upset because I feel disrespected by the press and by Mr. Rourke," the 21-year-old tells Rolling Stone. "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 of these distractions."
And you guys seriously need to knock it off with the tall tales that they were smooching, she says: "I'm not attracted to him, he's too old for me. Nothing ever happened and nothing ever will."
Well, that pretty much clears it up, doesn't it? Mickey's phoenix-like rebirth may suffer, thanks to denials of reports that he's going to wrestle Chris Jericho and now this. Don't worry, though, there's always Bai Ling.
