Robert Downey Jr was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon asked him if there are any scenes he doesn’t feel comfortable doing. Iron Man said he doesn’t like to do scenes where he opens doors and ones where he’s driving. Wanting to prove his point, Chaplin directed the NBC late host to act those different type of scenes. When they were done, Fallon declared, “I’m a bad actor. I’m a bad actor.” My dad would strongly disagree and so would I. Do you agree?
I don’t know about you, but I always thought that Ralph Macchio played The Karate Kid. Now I am having second thoughts after Robert Downey Jr shared a photo of himself doing Danielson’s signature move. So now I am confused. They kind of look alike. They started their careers around the same time. They are both in their 50’s and yet they don’t look like it. They both worked with William Zabka. Maybe he can answer that question? Although can you trust a Cobra Kai?
Robert Downey Jr dressed up as Tigger to cheer up a boy who has Cystic Fibrosis. Just when you think he can’t get any cuter or sweeter, he does something like this. What a wonderful 360 he has done since his troubled days.
BTW last week Channing Tatum dressed up as Winnie the Pooh, so how awesome would it be if someone made a live action Winnie the Pooh movie with Magic Mike as the bear and Iron Man as the tiger. I’d paid to see it.
Jimmy Fallon thinks that Robert Downey Jr is emotional, so the NBC late night host decided to do an emotional interview with him on The Tonight Show. Basically an emotion would appear on the screen and both of them had to act them out. One of them was “lack of confidence” and during it Fallon said, “I have a tiny pen!s!” Who knew?
Robert Downey Jr has been touring the world promoting Avengers Age of Ultron, so that means he will take a nap when and where he can. Today’s shut eye happened when someone put him up on a hook and left him there. So he closed his eyes, went to sleep and had some sweet dreams.
Although I will be having nightmares because seeing Iron Man like that reminds of those scenes in movies where some murderers hang a guy up on a hook in meat locker and leave him there to die. Hopefully someone will get him down before it is too late.
Earlier this week while Robert Downey Jr was being interviewed by Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy, things got so heated he walked out of the interview. Before RDJ left the room, he told the bully, “It’s getting a little Diane Sawyer in here.”
Today, when Iron Man was waiting to go on Live with Kelly and Michael, the respected journalist, who is also on the show, came over to see the man who gave her shout out. The two of them took a sweet picture together, and he had this to say about it, “A corrective experience with legitimate journalism.”
I can’t remember the last time RDJ ever dissed anyone, so it says a lot that he did it now. He is completely justified and I am glad he stood up for himself.
Everyone loves him, so no one likes what that reporter did for ratings including the actor himself.
After Channel 4 News‘ Krishnan Guru-Murthy asked Robert Downey Jr several awkward inane questions about Avengers: Age of Ultron, he took the interview to a whole new level of awkwardness. The reporter asked him about a quote from an interview the actor did in 2008 with The New York Times. In that article RDJ talked about coming out of prison and being Liberal, and KGM wanted to know more about it. When Iron Man explained that is how he felt then and not how he fells now, the bully wasn’t happy with that answer. At that point, the reporter nervously instantiated that Downey’s father is responsible for his drug use. You could see that RDJ was pissed and very upset by the questioning and decided to walk out. Even though he was at the door, the schmuck continued on with his question. Take a hint a$$hole.
Is it wrong to ask an actor about their past actions during a junket, not necessarily. But if the actor is visually upset and you are not asking the question correctly, then it is 100% wrong. And the entertainer has every reason to get up and walk out.
Especially, if said reporter has made other people so upset during interviews that they shut him down. That is exactly what happened when he was interviewed Quentin Tarantino about movie violence during the Django Unchained junket. Knowing he had a past incident like he had today, it made me wonder if he is being so forceful and controversial for ratings only. Which I personally think is a very sad ploy to get them

The first teaser trailer is out for the second Avengers movie and wow. It looks even better than the first one and that film was pretty gosh darn awesome!
So mark your calendars because Marvel’s Avengers: Age of Ultron is smashing into theaters May 1, 2015!
Robert Downey Jr is doing press for his new movie The Judge, but all anyone wants to know about is is there going to be an Iron Man 4. So will there be one? Depends what show RDJ is on to get the answer to that question. He told Ellen DeGeneres yes, but he told David Letterman no. So I guess that means we are no closer to an answer than we were before.
Does this mean he is done playing Tony Stark? Doesn’t sound like it because he told The Late Show host that he has signed on to do some more Marvel movies.
I say that since Iron Man has already had 3 movies, it is about time for Howard the Duck got a second one. Who’s with me?
