Quick Hit: Robert Downey Jr. Talks 'Iron Man 2'

By Michael Cavna


THE HOLLY WORD:
Today's featured quote from the Hollywood vine...


In San Diego, I got the chance to ask ROBERT DOWNEY Jr. what his working relationship with director Jon Favreau was like on the set of the recently wrapped "Iron Man 2." His response:

"IT'S PRETTY FLUID. I'm so sensitive, too, strangely, because I feel like Jon and I should be having this Holy Communion together. So if he's like Twittering or paying attention to any of the other cast members, I have, like, this inordinately challenged reaction.

"But the truth is, I 've grown up a little bit and I'm really strong at coming in and saying: 'There's something behind that wall [creatively], so let's knock it down and be bold there . ... I know it sounds weird, but I have equations in my head, and those equations apply to where people should be and [what] the frequency of the interactions should be. And the words and the dialogue and the props come in later."

Earlier, the "Iron Man 2" panel before some 6,000 geeks was especially entertaining because of the interplay between Favreau and Downey Jr. Here's footage from that session:
