Mickey Rourke has claimed he has been in a secret 30-year feud with Robert De Niro ever since the pair starred in Angel Heart.
Way back in 1987 Mickey said he schooled his co-star, which has meant he was recently barred from starring in a movie Robert was also in.
The actor didnt name the film he was apparently passed over for, however the 67-year-old claimed it was a Martin Scorsese film.
Robert is currently starring in the directors latest, The Irishman, alongside Al Pacino and Joe Pesci.
Mickey told Italian chat show Live – Non è la DUrso Scorsese approached him about a film and that he needed the money.
Six months ago, Im broke, he said.
The only money I had is when I went over to Russia to fight. I spent all that money.
Marty Scorsese wanted to meet me for a movie with Al Pacino, Joe Pesci, Christopher Walken and Robert De Niro.
He added: The casting person told my manager that Robert De Niro refused to work with me in a movie.
I am upset because I needed the money.
The Wrestler star alleged 76-year-old Robert wasnt his biggest fan because he schooled him when the pair starred together in the 80s.
Im only upset because I needed the money but the thing is he dont forget what happened 20 years ago, he said. They have a saying, “I took him to school.” Before that no other actor took him to school.
Mickey claimed Robert told him: I think its better if we dont talk because of our characters in the movie.
It hurt my feelings as I looked up to him.

The Oscar-nominated actor really isnt a fan of Robert now, saying he looks through him rather than looking up to him nowadays.
He continued: I came up from the s**t. He doesnt know that life. I lived that f**king life so every time I looked him in the face I look right through his a**hole.
