Rourke Pledges His Admiration For Knightley

Hollywood actor MICKEY ROURKE is an admirer of KEIRA KNIGHTLEY because she keeps her ego under control, unlike other up-and-coming actresses.

The ANGEL HEART star has no time for the vast majority of rising screen beauties, but 19-year-old Knightley has won his approval.

Rourke, 48, says, "I have no problem with her. It's really rare that I see somebody, especially at that age, where she's not like some Hollywood sort who's said, 'I'm the next so-and-so.'

"She's genuine. What I really like about her is that she's a lady, very classy, very talented. It's like a breath of fresh air working with somebody that I have respect for like that.

"I don't particularly care for actresses."
