Mickey Rourke faces backlash after praising Roman Polanski: ‘I can’t wait to do another movie with him’

Mickey Rourke faced backlash after praising disgraced film director Roman Polanski.

On Thursday, April 14, the actor Instagrammed a photo of himself behind the scenes of his latest film, which he was working on in Switzerland with the Polish-French director.

Rourke’s caption reads: “At the end of the day, once again a great pleasure to work with the legendary and talented Roman Polanski. I find it a great privilege to work with such a director, his film has such integrity, style, class and unpredictability.

“You know, there’s always something new to learn working with a guy who’s been in the film business for almost 60 years. I don’t normally have conversations with most directors, but Roman Polanski isn’t just another director.”

“God bless the man, I can’t wait to do another film with him,” added Rourke.

Polanski became a fugitive from the United States when he fled the country in 1978 after pleading guilty to the rape of a 13-year-old girl.

Fans were shocked by the actor’s praise for the director, with many commenting on the post in disgust.

“Promoting pedophiles. Unfollow,” wrote one user.

“Jesus! You know his history with underage children? WTF Micky!! God bless the man?? Are you losing your mind?” another added.

Someone commented, “Polanski you wouldn’t let him babysit your kids because he cares so much about Il [sic] never know.”

One noted: “A pedophile [sic] is not a good person.”

Although it has not yet been confirmed which film the two are collaborating on, it was announced in 2021 that Polanski would be returning behind the camera The palaceplays in Switzerland.
