Gwyneth Paltrow & Robert Downey, Jr.: Iron Man's 'EW' Cover!
Here’s what the Iron Man 3 co-stars had to share:
Gwyneth, on getting in the Iron Man suit: “There was some talk in Iron Man 2 that she would get in the suit, and at one point there was this amazing [concept] drawing of her and Tony. She was in a suit with her hair blowing, and the suit had boobs and stuff. It’s better to be in the man’s suit because it says I can kick ass in this thing as much as any guy. It’s sort of the comic-book version of a Cinderella story. She starts timid and sort of cleaning up after Tony, and then she evolves into full strength and a superhero.”
Robert, on being an older superhero: “I’m going to be 50 in a couple years. I caught myself the last few years losing sight of that because I work with young people and I see Hemsworth and I relate to that. But then I’m reminded, ‘He is that; you are something else.’”
Gwyneth, on Robert being irreplaceable as Iron Man: “Personally, I think it would be very hard for someone to step into Iron Man, because it is so Robert. You’ve got pathos, you’ve got humor, you’ve got a facility with language and improvisation and an incredible pain underneath it all. It’s difficult to replicate that.”
