Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke has never really played the Hollywood game. Sometimes it cost him his career, but recently some filmmakers found ways to bring out his best work and let him keep being Mickey Rourke. When he talks about those films, he’s as raw and honest as ever.

Immortals opens this weekend, with Rourke as the villain, King Hyperion. The ancient Greek legends of Theseus (Henry Cavill), his soldiers and the gods have to defeat Hyperion. With his hands and footprints now preserved in cement at Grauman’s Chinese Theater, it seems like things are looking up for Rourke, but he keeps it real.

Mickey Rourke
Mickey Rourke always makes sure his psychiatrist gets a VIP pass to his movie premieres and parties as a thank you for helping him "fix" his life.

The star admits he has few friends in the entertainment industry and so when it comes to handing out red carpet tickets for events like Tuesday's "Immortals" premiere in Los Angeles, he makes sure his mechanic and dentist are catered for - and his longtime shrink always gets the royal treatment.

Rourke insists it's the least he can do for his pal, who is largely responsible for the actor's comeback.

He explains, "I did 13 years of therapy with...

Julia Roberts Snow White
In one of the competing Snow White film projects, Julia Roberts plays the evil queen to Lily Collins’ Snow White. America’s Sweetheart will have to be the ultimate fairy tale villain, but director Tarsem Singh said it just didn’t come naturally to the Pretty Woman.

Around Halloween, a lot of partiers try to dress up as famous Hollywood characters. One actor decided to go in hiding. Stephen Dorff attended a star studded Halloween party on Friday, but nobody knew who he was.

“I wore a mask and I gotta say I committed, because if you wear a mask, you have to commit,” Dorff said. “The whole point is if you wear a mask, you want to play around so nobody knows who it is. If you keep breathing and taking it off to smoke, it kind of ruins the whole effect.”

The next day, Dorff was doing interviews for the new film Immortals, so he was recovering from his pa...
