Mickey Rourke's foul mouth has gotten him in trouble again.
The actor spewed an antigay slur last night when a paparazzo asked him about gossip reports linking him to Evan Rachel Wood.
"She's a good friend, that's it," Rourke said, while walking into L.A.'s Hyde nightclub. "Tell that f----t who wrote all that shit in the paper I'd like to break his f--king legs."
A video of the incident quickly went viral today as soon as it was posted at Hollywood.tv.
But now, in an exclusive statement to me, Rourke says he regrets what he said. "I want to sincerely apologize for the derogatory word I used," he says in the statement. "It was insensitive and inappropriate of me and I am deeply sorry that I may have offended anyone."
Wood has also denied the rumors, but did so in a much more civilized manner.
