Mickey Rourke has hailed MEGAN FOX Hollywood's "best young actress" after she impressed him on the set of their movie PASSION PLAY.
The Wrestler star appears opposite Fox, who plays a "circus freak" with wings who is under the control of a ruthless gangster and is eventually rescued by Rourke's character.
And Rourke was left in awe of Fox's talent and professionalism - insisting she's one of the most promising movie stars in Hollywood.
He says, "(She) is the best young actress I've ever worked with. I don’t know if a lot of her films have showcased her acting ability more than, say, being action-oriented, but she really stepped up (to) the plate with this one and was very consistent and professional, beyond her years. At 23, I couldn’t do half of what she’s doing."
