The “Iron Man” star Robert Downey Jr. has expressed one of his secret desires to make out onscreen with his “Iron Man” co-star Gwyneth Paltrow, one more time.
Call it boldness or honesty, the 51-year-old shared his feelings on Wednesday’s Howard Stern Show. Downey Jr. told he is keen to get Paltrow back as Pepper Potts, into the Iron Man films so they can hook up.
The “Iron Man” hero confessed, “I guess I can dream a little bit. My free pass is — because her and [my wife] Susan are such good friends — is Gwyneth. I gotta get her back in these movies so I can make out with her onscreen again.”
Of course, Robert Downey Jr. didn’t fail to mention, “I’m very happily married,” and that his wife Susan “couldn’t care less” if he locks lips with Gwyneth. But there is a catch: the cameras have to be ‘rolling on a take’ for them to legally kiss. Daily Mail reveals.
The 43-year-old American actor’s character is a romantic love interest of Tony Stark as mentioned in books published by Marvel Comics. Gwyneth has been cast as Pepper Potts in all three Iron Man movies – but does not appear in the most recent crossover Captain America: Civil war.
According to Indian Express , the Manhattan-born artist also said that Gwyneth will be making a return to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “She’s coming back. We need her,” Downey concluded.
Robert Downey Jr. has always been upfront about his feelings, so it might not come to his fans as a blow of surprise. At the same time, who could deny the onscreen chemistry of Gwyneth (Pepper Potts) and Downey Jr. (Tony Stark). Perhaps the audience would be equally eager to see some more intimate moments between these two, in the upcoming sequel of “Iron Man.”
