Robert Downey, Jr. Does Not Find Your Bumbling Nervousness the Least Bit Charming
A few weeks ago, a bumbling awkward interviewer sat down with Mila Kunis and stumbled his way around the interview in such a way as to actually elicit the sympathy of Kunis, who treated the interviewer, Chris Stark, like a lost puppy who needed to be cuddled.
It was great.
That interview became something of a viral hit, so I suppose the outfit that employs this fella decided to unleash him again, despite no apparent journalistic or interviewing skills (either that, or it’s all a ruse). This time, he subjected poor Robert Downey, Jr. — who officially signed in to Avengers 2 and 3 today — to his bumbling nervousness, and RDJ wasn’t nearly as understanding.
In fact, he seemed kind of annoyed, and at a certain point, I didn’t blame him. He was game, mind you, and he humors the guy with all the grace only RDJ can muster, but the tenor of the interview was wildly different than the one with Kunis. Before it was adorably awkward; not it’s just “Uh, why is this kid interviewing me?”
It is uncomfortable, to say the least.
