When I first heard about this interview, I rushed home to watch it. Robert Downey Jr AND Jon Stewart. Both at the top of their game. Both comedic, charismatic heavyweights in their industry. I was really excited.
And then I watched it.
Here is 7 minutes of Jon Stewart FANGIRL-ING Iron Man. It’s kinda awkward:
Do we love how honest Robert Downey Jr is being about ‘renegotiating’ his Iron Man deal? There’s none of this bullshit – ‘oh I’ll return if its right for the character’ or ‘I really want to focus on the growth of my craft’.
SUBTEXT: I WILL COME BACK IF I CAN GET ANOTHER $50 MILLION. He’s a ‘strategic cost’, after all.
