ROURKE: 'I NEVER TOOK STEROIDS'
Posted 9:33am 01/14/09
MICKEY ROURKE has hit back at reports he took steroids in a bid to get in shape for gritty new movie THE WRESTLER, insisting the media has gone too far with comments he made in a magazine interview. The Golden Globe winner hinted at the fact he'd taken steroids to bulk up for his role as battered fighter Randy 'The Ram' Robinson in a recent interview with U.S. magazine Men's Journal. When asked if he took steroids, the star replied, "When I'm a wrestler, I behave like a wrestler." But Rourke now insists he didn't use growth hormones or controversial sports drugs to enhance his physique. He states, "I did some stuff. You wouldn't classify it as steroids, but I did some heavy duty supplements... but not the regular stuff." (KL/WNVET/MJ) *WENN
