Mickey Rourke shushed Chris Pratt and Anna Faris' baby.

The 'Scary Movie' star was travelling on an 11-hour flight from London with the couple's two-year-old son Jack when her "vocalising" baby was told to be quiet by the ex-boxer and Hollywood legend.

Recalling the incident, she said: "I have taken my sweet little boy all over the place. Most notably, the longest trip we've done is London to visit Chris when he was shooting 'Guardians of the Galaxy'.

"Any parent out there knows that travelling on a plane for 11 hours is a long time. So on the way back, we're on the tarmac at Heathrow and it's quiet, before the engines roll, and he starts vocalising; not screaming, not crying, just being adorable, I thought.

"But I'm also sweating because everyone is hating me. So across the aisle, I hear a 'shh' and I look over and it's Mickey Rourke. And I was already so nervous before and knowing everyone hated me and then to have Mickey Rourke [there]... I was shushed by Mickey Rourke. And then he started grumbling, like, 'You better shut that baby up.' "

On returning home, Anna, 38, then told a writer on her show, 'Mom', about what had happened, only for them to recall a similar experience.

Speaking on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!', she joked: "Apparently Mickey Rourke has a thing ... he likes to shush babies."
