Despite the incredibly awkward and inappropriate nature of Robert Downey, Jr.’s short interview with Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy last week, the former kept his head up with his classy walk-out. There was, however, a rather odd turn of phrase that the Avengers: Age of Ultron actor used before he left Guru-Murthy: “It’s getting a little Diane Sawyer in here.”
Perhaps as an apology to Sawyer (and a gentlemanly finger to Guru-Murthy), Downey posted the above hug-happy photo op to Instagram yesterday while doing press for the Avengers sequel. Who else wouldn’t want to be in the middle of a Downey-Sawyer sandwich? Anyone? Guys?
