“Sometimes I sing ‘Somebody That I Used To Know’ to myself as I go through my phone’s contact list … Yep.”

I’m convinced that RDJ knows exactly what slash is and purposely promotes it in all of his films.
And his wife fully supports it.
Just for funsies I’m going to remind everyone that RDJ told Rolling Stone
“A lot of my peer group think I’m an eccentric bisexual. That’s OK. Being relaxed about sexuality is something you’re born with…[My bisexuality] was manufactured. I didn’t have an identity. I was playing around. I expressed it. I grew up in the Rocky Horror Picture Show world, where even my butch friends turned out to be androgynous on Saturday nights.”
Robert Downey Jr. is kind of the perfect human being.
This is why I love him. Because he fucked up. He fucked up big time. Addicted to practically everything under the sun. Depressed, certainly, in a downward spiral. And he did his time, he did his time and came out this beautiful, inspirational guy who basically shoved his demons into the spotlight and danced the fuck around with them and gave everyone who doubted him the finger in the end. That picture up there, in that hideous orange thing, that’s part of his legacy. And some people may think thats not anything you want in your legacy to the world, but if you ask me it just shows he’s a brave motherfucker, and he’s a strong one, and he’s bludgeoning those demons with a metal bat.
Reporter: I have a question to Robert and to Scarlett. Firstly to Robert, throughout Iron Man 1 and 2, Tony Stark started off as a very egotistical character but learns how to fight as a team. And so how did you approach this role, bearing in mind that kind of maturity as a human being when it comes to the Tony Stark character, and did you learn anything throughout the three movies that you made?
And to Scarlett, to get into shape for Black Widow did you have anything special to do in terms of the diet, like did you have to eat any specific food, or that sort of thing?
Scarlett: How come you get the really interesting existential question, and I get the like, “rabbit food” question?
The respect given to you if you’re a man in the entertainment business, and the respect given to you if you’re a woman in the entertainment business: all perfectly summed up in one idiotically thought out line of questioning.
