Robert Downey Jr. Would Sign Up For 'Iron Man 4' If Mel Gibson Directs It
Robert Downey Jr. suits up while hitting the premiere of his latest film The Judge held at AMC River East Theater on Sunday (October 5) in Chicago, Ill.
The 49-year-old actor was joined on the red carpet by director David Dobkin.
Robert recently shared that he would do Iron Man 4 if his close friend Mel Gibson directed the flick.
“[Mel] has changed so much,” Robert shared to Deadline. “Nobody should make a case for somebody who just wants forgiveness but hasn’t changed, but he’s a fundamentally different guy. I think it was just the very worst aspects of somebody’s psyche being treated as though they were the blanket statement about a person. But honestly we are talking about a competitive business and it all comes down to this: because he is so gifted as a story teller and a director, I don’t know that he requires some sort of mass forgiveness.”
Robert added, “He has changed, but at the same time he’s still Mel. He and I are so similar in so many ways. He really, honestly is the first to admit his character defects and also is just a great, great collaborative guy. I always say too that if you want to judge a man or a woman then look at their kids. He has the healthiest, happiest, most productive kids you could ever meet or know, and I’m fortunate to be friendly with several of them. He did a lot right, and there’s stuff he taught me about parenting that didn’t sink in at the time but have proven to be true.”
FYI: Robert is wearing an Etro suit.
