It’s been far too long since Robert Downey Jr. made a small child cry. The last time it happened was back in 1998, when Downey stole a two-year-old’s pacifier, so he could link the tongue of a hobo who smoked a joint earlier in the week. The streak mercifully snapped this week, when Downey, NOT Iron Man, met Jaxson Denno.
18-month-old Jaxson Denno burst into tears when he met Robert Downey Jr. while he was filming in Massachusetts. Not from the pure ecstasy of meeting RDJ, but from the bitter disappointment when he found out Robert Downey Jr. is not really Iron Man and Iron Man does not exist in real life. (Via)
Don’t worry, kid. Nighthawk’s still real, though. No one would be dumb enough to come up with THAT character.
