Andrea LangiAndrea Langi shares a steamy-bathroom sex scene with Mickey Rourke in the upcoming film The Wrestler.

The film just won the top prize at the Venice Film Festival and was also the buzz of the Toronto Film Festival, from which Langi just returned, heading right to Pearl (1904 Chestnut) for drinks with friends.

The Wrestler, directed by Darren Aronofsky ("Requiem for a Dream"), also stars Marisa Tomei and Evan Rachel Wood. It features Rourke as a wrestler trying to make comebacks in his professional and personal life. The movie is set for release in December.

Langi, a former Eagles Cheerleader, plays Alyssa, "a minor love interest" of Rourke's. "We had some pretty tough scenes that we had to do together," Langi says, though she found Rourke "a very nice guy, very sweet and down to earth."


Langi, who appeared on the reality show For Love or Money several years back, has two more upcoming films: The Nail, with William Forsythe and Tony Luke, Jr., and The Greek American, written and directed by Alysia Maltepes. A few years ago we reported that Langi and Upper Darby-native actor Jamie Kennedy were dating. For now, Langi says, they are "very dear friends."
