Hunky vampire Robert Pattinson describes his sex scenes with Kristen Stewart, telling Parade, "It becomes ridiculous after a while. I think the more comfortable you are with each other, the harder it gets to do any kind of really intense relationship scene. You're kind of thinking, 'I don't want to embarrass myself in front of this person.'"

"Extra" welcomed Mickey Rourke to The Grove on Wednesday and caught up on his recent projects.

Actor Mickey Rourke is making the most of his second chance in Hollywood -- even starring in an upcoming indie film with Megan Fox.
"I just worked on a smaller movie ["Passion Play"] with Megan Fox," Rourke said. "Creatively, it was a lot of fun. She was great to work with -- and to look at. It was nice working with someone who has a reputation for being beautiful, but who really did her homework. She was challenging to work with. People are going to have a different perception of her."
It was an emotional red carpet reunion for Mickey Rourke and Kim Basinger last night at the premiere of their film "The Informers." Rourke tells "Extra," "I was very nervous coming here. I haven't seen Kim in 23 years." The actors both appear in the film, but they don't share screen time.
The two starred as lovers in the steamy classic "9 1/2 Weeks" back in 1986 and Basinger tells "Extra" she reached out to her co-star while he was filming "The Wrestler." She says, "I wrote him a letter because I will always feel a connection with him and he wrote me back a beautiful note and it had his dog on there. We're both animal lovers."
Rourke added, "I thanked her for the letter... coming from her, it was very special and it was a very generous and heartfelt letter. It brought me to tears really."
Mickey is about to begin filming "Iron Man 2" with old buddy Robert Downey Jr.. The 56-year-old reveals he and Downey have finally grown out of their bad boy stage, saying, "We got two and a half strikes, so we're not going to fall back. That ain't going to happen."
Basinger looked like a bombshell on the red carpet for the premiere. She tells "Extra" her svelte figure is thanks to her daughter Ireland. She reveals, "I'm chasing a 13-year-old around my house to make her do her Spanish homework."
"The Informer" sneaks into theaters May 1.
It's official -- WWE and Mickey Rourke are teaming up for WrestleMania this Sunday in Houston!
Rourke will be on hand to support Ric "Nature Boy" Flair, Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Ricky "the Dragon" Steamboat -- his WWE Hall of Fame friends -- as they face off against WWE Superstar Chris Jericho.
Chris and Mickey's rivalry began when Rourke challenged Jericho to a WrestleMania match during an interview with "Extra" on the red carpet for the SAG Awards. The Oscar nominee looked into the camera and said, "Chris Jericho, I'm coming after your ass. You better get in shape brother!"
Rourke became a professional boxer back in 1991 and played the role of a wrestler in the highly-acclaimed flick "The Wrestler."
Robert Downey, Jr. sat down with Mario Lopez to talk about everything from superheroes to his upcoming "Sherlock Holmes" flick. The Oscar-nominated star also reveals Mickey Rourke and Scarlett Johannson are officially cast in the "Iron Man" sequel!
Downey said, "They are both cast and doing 'Iron Man 2.' Garry Shandling is in the film. Of course we have Don Cheadle. We have Sam Jackson. We have Sam Rockwell. And we of course we have, my dearest heart, Gwyneth Paltrow."
Downey is also busy working on the new "Sherlock Holmes" adaptation from Guy Ritchie. He admits there's a kinky scene with the legendary sleuth... naked and handcuffed in bed! Robert confesses, "Our version of 'Sherlock Holmes' goes back to the book where he was basically the first western martial artist. They don't talk about that part in the books very often because they never had the budget to put it onscreen. We had the budget to put it on screen."
The megastar, who turns 43 on Saturday, hopes Gywneth Paltrow's rockstar hubby will be aboard for "Holmes'" soundtrack. Downey says, "We are hoping Chris Martin of Coldplay will contribute to our score. He's a huge Sherlock Holmes fan." He continued, "He told me you need to be really skinny which is always the last thing you want to hear." The toned actor jokes, "I would probably be Jabba the Hut's brother if I wasn't required to stay in shape for these films."
