I’ve always had a bit of a crush on Robert Downey Jr. But that’s pretty obvious, isn’t it? In the films, we flirt our way in and out of adventures.
I’m at the point where I don’t even care about the movie anymore, I just like seeing these two act like idiots.
Jude calls RDJ “Little Peter Pan” (x).
i don’t even know what to do with you idiots right now
aging: you’re doing it right
Dear god, someone stop him before he ages even hotter and kills us all.
“Evans, don’t turn around.”
“Why? What’s behind me?”
“No, it’s cool, I have a plan. Wait for it. Wait for it. Okay when I tell you to, shove your hands in your pockets. Of the khakis, not the coat.”
“Why would I — “
“Evans, have I or have I not spend this entire shoot giving you fucking awesome advice?”
“I haven’t actually tried out most of it yet.”
“Hids, back me up.”
“He does have a lot more experience than we do, Chris. I’d do as he says.”
“Not yet! Not yet! Now.”
“Okay, I’m doing it! Why are my hands in my pockets again?”
“Because you just showed your magnificent ass to an entire crowd of photographers. No! Stay there! Show off what God and untold hours in the gym gave you. Your ass is worth a thousand words.”
“I did a movie where I took my pants off, you know.”
“And nobody watches it for any other reason, trust me. It was terrible. Mark?”
“It was a bad movie, Chris.”
“I know that! I had rent to pay!”
“Calm the hell down, we’ve all been there, you think I liked doing Less Than Zero? Okay, you can take your hands out of your pockets, they’re moving on to Scarlett.”
“I’m not sure I should be listening to you anymore.”
“You should always listen to Robert, Chris.”
Robert Downey Jr. on Jimmy Kimmel
Every time I see RDJ doing something hilarious now, I picture him using it in a PowerPoint presentation he’s giving to Chris Evans on How To Remain Awesome At 47.
“Evans, I am giving you this advice for a reason. Listen to me. Listen. If you are ever given a choice between doing something ridiculous and maintaining your dignity, ask yourself whether assholes who maintain their dignity ever get their picture in a purple velour suit in People Magazine. No, they don’t. You know what else they don’t get to do? Cuddle with Jimmy Kimmel. Don’t laugh, he smells amazing. Evans, are you listening to me? When in doubt, ask what you would have done when you were fifteen, then do it.”
“What did I just tell you?”
“Jimmy Kimmel smells nice, sir.”
“Like goddamn sandalwood and mangoes, Chris.”
So I was reading up on Avengers trivia and apparently RDJ kept food hidden all over this set and they couldn’t find where it was so they just kinda let him continue doing it. So that’s his actual food he’s offering and whenever he’s eating in a scene, it’s not scripted. He was just hungry.
“Evans, you are thirty years old. I am forty seven. I get hungry like every three fucking hours, so I am going to eat a goddamn snack. If you want to be doing action films when you are forty seven, you are going to need to get used to hiding dried fruit around the set. Do you want to be doing action films when you are forty seven?”
“I would like a blueberry please, sir.”
