Actor Mickey Rourke claims Nicole Kidman had him fired from 2003 movie IN The Cut, because she didn't want to work with him.

Kidman was originally cast as the leading lady in the Jane Campion thriller alongside Rourke. Kidman eventually pulled out and was replaced by MEG RYAN - but not before losing the Angel Heart actor the leading man role that went to MARK RUFFALO, according to Rourke.

He snipes, "I got the part and the lead girl who was supposed to work in the movie said, 'I'm not working with Mickey Rourke' because she'd rather work with little f**king boys who she can f**king kick around. F**k her."
