Robert Downey Jr. Leaves Interview After Being Asked About Past Drug Use
During an interview with Channel 4 News’ Krishnan Guru-Murthy over in the UK, Robert Downey Jr. wasn't going to take any questions regarding his past drug use, so he walked out of the interview. If only he blasted him with his repulsor beam...
You would think someone who gets the chance to interview Downey would try not to annoy him, but this guy goes full force into an awkward moment. The funny thing is Downey even calls out the reporter around the 5:30 mark, because he gets pretty nervous before asking the question.
The reporter felt pretty froggy, so he jumped right into the question of Downey's past. That was the signal for Iron Man to walk out and go save the world, because he doesn't have time to talk about the past.
You can even hear him say that the interview got, "too Diana Sawyer" for his taste. I don't blame him for walking out since he is promoting The Avengers movie, which is suppose to be a happy time, especially for comic nerds. Let's just leave the past in the past and look to the future of more Iron Man movies.
