I met Robert Downey Jr in a private members’ club in Soho, London.
I was, as usual, given all of 10 minutes for the shoot. I don’t mind about that; it’s 5 minutes longer than I usually spend. On this occasion there were lights to set-up and ‘stuff’ to be moved around in the room. Whilst this was going on, Robert was over the other side of the room in ‘hair and make-up’. This is standard for actors. If your reputation rests partially on your looks, you need to look after them.
What did surprise me though, was when Robert finally came over to say hello. I shook his hand and made small talk and was taken aback by his somewhat nasty tracksuit.
We all like different things don’t we.
