ROBERT Downey Jr looks like a man who was up for a laugh and didnâ€™t take himself too seriously today as he arrived for an interview with David Letterman.
It couldnâ€™t have been a more different picture than when he stormed out of his interview with Channel 4 News interview on Wednesday when quizzed about his troubled past.
With his hands deep in his coat pockets, the Avengers: Age of Ultron star laughed and joked with fans outside the sudio as he arrived for The Late Show with David Letterman in New York.
Flanked by security, the star â€“ who plays Tony Stark and Ironman in the Marvel blockbuster â€“ couldnâ€™t have appeared more relaxed as fans lined the street to catch a glimpse of the Hollywood star.
It was a totally different story yesterday, when he gave the world a different look at his personality when he flipped the switch on a sit-down interview with Krishnan Guru-Murthy.
In London to promote his latest film, Avengers: Age of Ultron , Downey Jr discussed superheroes with the Channel 4 News presenter .
But when the questions turned to his past experience of serving a prison sentence (for drug offences), the atmosphere changed.
He declined to explain a comment in an interview with the New York Times some years ago that “you can’t go from a $2,000-a-night suite at La Mirage to a penitentiary and really understand it and come out a liberal,” saying it made sense at the time: “I could pick that apart for two hours and be no closer to the truth than giving you some half-arsed answer right now.
“I couldn’t even tell you what a liberal is,” he said.
At one point, the Iron Man star warned: “You better get to you next question pretty quick.”
On being asked if he minds further personal questions, Downey says “you have as much time as anyone else has.”
As the interview breaks down, he says it’s getting a bit too personal.
