Mickey RourkeMickey Rourke has activists up in arms after he attempted to defend video footage of him calling a journalist a gay slur. "I don't really give a f***. Life's too short," Rourke told UK's The Sun. "I have more gay friends than any 50 straight people I know, so I don't really give a s***. I meant what I said," he added.

The film, dating back to last November, features an inebriated Rourke hitting back at a reporter for claiming he was dating actress Evan Rachel Wood. "She's a good friend, that's it. And tell that f***ot who wrote all that shit in the paper I'd like to break his f****** legs," he said.
