Robert Downey Jr. is a well-known actor, famous for his roles in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Tony Stark, Iron Man, and other acclaimed movies. He had a dark past, which often comes up during his interactions with the media. While celebrities occasionally experience challenging or uncomfortable interviews, Robert stood up in the middle of an interview when asked about his dark past.
The Iron Man actor battled drug addiction, including cocaine, and faced multiple arrests and stints in rehab centers. These personal struggles affected his career, creating obstacles and a negative impact on his public image.
Going back to 2015, Robert Downey Jr. was in a promo for Avengers: Age of Ultron. However, things took a nasty turn during the British leg of his campaign.
The actor came out of an interview in the outlet with Krishnan Guru-Murthy, later calling him a “bad feed assembler.” He took a drastic step after the interviewer started asking him about his dark past, which makes him uneasy.
Now, after so many years, a snippet of the video is going viral on the internet and netizens are reacting, thanking Robert for handling the situation after being humiliated in the interview.
One wrote: “The interviewer had it coming. He knew that RDJ was not comfortable answering the questions and he kept asking, which was very rude.”
The second user wrote: “Imagine getting all that education and then wasting it making people feel bad and knowing that rdj hates you.”
The third user wrote: “That was not an interview, it was an interrogation, which the interviewer has no right to do. He’s just trying to start a whole drama about RDJ’s past and see how it backfires!
One more wrote: “I think it’s a good thing he’s gone, I mean he’s done so much and come this far to reflect on his past, it was obviously unnecessary and unacceptable so I have huge respect for RDJ.”
