In a new interview on the Italian TV show “Live – Non è la D’Urso”, Rourke talks about missing an opportunity to star in “The Irishman” due to an ongoing feud with his one-time “Angel Heart” co-star.

“Marty Scorsese wanted to meet me for a movie with Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, and Robert De Niro,” Rourke said. “The casting person told my manager that Robert De Niro said he refused to work with me in a movie.”

Rourke added that losing out on the movie made him upset because he “needed the money.”

The actor was famously difficult to work with on the set of “Angel Heart”. In 2008, director Alan Parker recalled that working with Rourke was “a nightmare. He is very dangerous on the set because you never know what he is going to do.”

As for his opinion on De Niro, Rourke says he looks “through him… I came up from the s**t. He doesn’t know that life. I lived that f**king life, so every time I look him in the face, I look right through his a**hole.”

ET Canada has reached out to De Niro’s rep for comment.

Meanwhile, “The Irishman” producers Jane Rosenthal and Emma Tillinger Koskoff, along with casting director Ellen Lewis, issued the following statement to ET Canada: “Mickey Rourke was never asked to be in ‘The Irishman’ nor was he ever even thought of, discussed or considered to be in the movie.”
