Mickey RourkeMickey Rourke set to star as Whiplash in Iron Man 2 - in cinemas today - has sent online gossip sites into a frenzy after describing one of his recent work colleagues - believed to be Gwyneth Paltrow - as "a pain in the a**" on set.

In an attempt to calm down a possible fiery situation, a representative for Rourke has responded by dismissing rumours that the actor hates working with Gwyneth Paltrow and insists he holds his Iron Man 2 co-star in the "highest regard".

The problem began when the star of The Wrestler told MovieHole.net, "I worked with an actress recently who, despite having a reputation as a good actress, s**ts herself when that little red light comes on."
