The 5 Best Reactions to Robert Downey Jr. Disappointing a Toddler

Robert Downey Jr kid cryingA photo of a one-and-a-half-year-old crying next to Robert Downey Jr. after his mother introduced him as Iron Man and not the regular guy that he clearly is made the rounds today.

RDJ, father of two, met the boy while walking around Massachusetts, taking a break from filming his new drama, The Judge.

The internet had a lot to say about it, with the worst, most common reaction being something about toddlers being way too young to see Iron Man (as if The Lion King isn’t more traumatizing).

Runner-up for worst goes to anyone who made fun of the kid’s name (Jaxson) and faux hawk. Here are the 5 best comments on RDJ posing next to the from around the net:

1. “Heh. Looks to me like he’s thinking: “I gave up smack for this?!” -sportzzzgirl, Gawker

2. “Maybe he wouldn’t be crying if RDJ wasn’t punching him in the head!” -Jae, People.com

3. “…Don’t even start with the Santa thing…” -AndInOtherNews, Huffington Post

4. “This expression is the face my brain would make 80% of every day if my brain had a face.”  -lumpinrazamafoo, Tumblr

5. “Young Jaxson actually is a big trip-hop fan, and he mistakenly thought his mother said they were going to see RJD2.” -Fozberry, Gawker

In other photos we see that the young boy is a DC Comics/Superman fan and was actually crying because he didn’t get to meet Henry Cavill or Christopher Reeve.

“That kid’s disillusionment will haunt RDJ the rest of his days. You can see him confronting his own mortality andpowerlessness right there in the picture.” -spence900, Gawker

Trailer: Iron Man 3 (Theatrical)

Tony Stark talks increasingly less like Tyrion Lannister and more like an excited 8-year-old in the new trailer for Iron Man 3. “I build neat stuff. I got a great girl,” he says.

And so he does. The third installment seems to focus most on a Spider-Man-friendly story involving lifelong partner Pepper Pots and a new half-Chinese enemy played by Ben Kingsley.  Continue reading “Trailer: Iron Man 3 (Theatrical)”

Iron Man Punched ScarJo With Metal Fist Of Reality

Reportedly (means I have no clue if this is true or not) Robert Downey Jr. punched Scarlett Johansson on the set of the new Avengers movie, because he pushed the wrong button in his Iron Man suit.

A “source” (still dunno if it’s true) says:

“Robert triggered a switch that controls one of his arms and it suddenly jerked backward and whacked poor Scarlett. Knocked silly, she staggered backward, then lost her balance and fell off the low platform they were standing on.”

At LEAST now we know who’d win in a fight between Iron Man and Black Widow. Oh wait, I already knew…

Second Child For Iron Man!

Robert Downey Jr. and his wife Susan Levin/Downey are expecting their first child early next year! It is Robert’s second child, after his first son Indio with ex-wife Deborah Falconer.

Robert’s rep told the press today,

“Robert and Susan could not be more excited over this news. They can’t wait to welcome this new baby into their wonderful family.”

I think I know how they made the kid too, I’m getting a psychic Miss Cleo visual. Looks like it happened on the red carpet sometime, overexcitement for one of his films?

Maybe something that has yet to come out, like The Avengers or Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows?
