Robert Downey Jr’s savage response after being called a diva

The Avengers star is synonymous with an enormous fan following for his impact on the superhero genre. Fans have admired Robert Downey Jr. for his carefree persona and his incredible sense of dry humor, which marks him as one of the most savage avengers. But one of his most savage moments occurred during an interview with Jimmy Kimmel.

During a Jimmy Kimmel Live episode that took place before the release of the Avengers: Age of Ultron, the whole avengers cast was taking fan questions and one of the most memorable moments arrived when the Sherlock Holmes actor was called a diva by a fan. The Iron Man actor humorously replied: “get that bitch off the monitor”.

The actor isn’t new in pulling off these savage stunts just like his MCU counterpart and is a perfect example of art imitating life. And after a decade of portraying the character and going through different arcs, it’s quite difficult to separate Tony Stark from Robert Downey Jr.

The Russo brother’s response to Robert Downey Jr being called a diva

The Russo brothers have always been big fans of the Iron man actor for his work ethic. When they were asked about the actor being demanding, considering reports of him having multiple vanity vans, the director just laughed off the situation and turned down the arguments of the Tony Stark actor being an entitled person.

The directors then praised him by calling him one of the most hardworking actors in the industry. They explained the reason for that persona is that the actor has been imitating for so long and commended the actor by stating,

“He jokes about it, but you know why he does that? I think it is to play along and create a persona, he acts like a diva, but he is the hardest-working actor you will ever work with. He is exceedingly professional. He has a certain effervescence about him that’s universally translated and it comes at a cost. It requires him to project himself a certain way.”
