I want to say there is less pressure and there is more camaraderie.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy (born 5 April 1970):]
Do you feel you have to carry the Iron Man movies in a way that you don’t, when there is lots of you.

[Robert John Downey Jr.:]
It just comes out, it’s just a matter of schedule, I mean when you’re in every shot of something, you know what I mean, well it’s kind of like doing your own show? You know what I mean it’s not like someone saying, ‘hey, I will do the next interview for you, you know’. So you forgot, you want to still make sure that you have your ark in your moments, but you’re not responsible for the narrative of the whole thing. So it’s kind of great, and I genuinely like all the other folks, so that helps.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Were you a superhero fan as a child or as a teenager or…

[Robert John Downey Jr.:]
I suppose as a Westerner, as an American, it’s just so part of the kind of ‘kid culture’, you know. I was in a – like nerd about it or anything, you know. But I’m definitely a all the old TV stuff and the comic book stuff has influenced me.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Iron man is such a different superhero, though, isn’t he. He is self-made. He is…

[Robert John Downey Jr.:]
Sure

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:] Source: LYBIO.net
He is arrogant in a very appealing way.

[Robert John Downey Jr.:]
Right.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Is that – was that what you brought to it, or was it there?

[Robert John Downey Jr.:]
It was always inherent in the comics, and you know, Stanley back in the 60’s, it was really kind of the Vietnam era, sort of, fabrication – you know. And he was under pressure to keep coming up with new characters. And so he kind of did this mosh of things and who would have thought all those years later that it wound up being the character that differentiated this universe from other comic book worlds and here we are – you know.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
What difference do you think it makes that he is – he is the self-made Super Hero?

[Robert John Downey Jr.:]
Uh…I think more than anything that I always played it, like he is a guy who is in big business that you may or may not have judgement on, he is an arms dealer. And the metaphoric significance of having a piece of shrapnel from one of your own warheads blow up and then you actually have to – you have to build something to save your own life. I always thought that was – that to me is just as kind of a new myth.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Could you explain you idea behind [Ultronamy] what is the real fear, here?

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
In Tony’s mind A) it’s if you – the idea behind a team like this is for the team to retire, because the odds are that one or all of them are going to get bumped, pretty soon. So his idea is pretty altruistic, he is thinking, how can I put aside a business and still have a big bouncer at the door of our vulnerable little planet.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:] Source: LYBIO.net
And that is why he does what everybody fears, which is unleash this, this monster.

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
Right, well clearly he doesn’t do it to unleash a monster, it’s co-opted. There is a couple of points in the script that I think is the reason that Age of Ultron is actually a worthy companion to Avengers and in some ways a better film. In that it takes the conventions and it twists and re-twists them in a way, that is kind of clever. Just as an audience member, I’m like oh that is really cool, I appreciate the kind of complexity of it.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
And what do you think of the obvious parallels being made between you and Iron man?

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
At this point it’s natural, but I – you know – if you’d ask me in the first Iron Man, I will be like, “That is me”. And now I am realizing, I have realized that what’s “Of course it’s not”. You know, um… I am not saying that I’m such a fantasist that I thought like I was Tony Starc, But I thought he was like my persona, but none of us are personas.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
But he is becoming a much more likable character, well isn’t he?

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
I suppose so.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
A better man.

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
Yes, becoming a better guy.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
In a way that you are, as well, I suppose.

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
Sure.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
I mean, what I really would like to – would I would like to ask you about a quote, you gave to to the New York Times. And I don’t want to pry, if you don’t want to talk about it – that’s fine. What you said to the New York Times, it was about, it was after your incarceration and you said, you can’t go from a $2,000 a night hotel suite to a penitentiary and understand it and come out a liberal. And I just wanted to know what you meant by that.

[Robert Downey Jr.:] Source: LYBIO.net
Well, the funny thing is and I appreciate your point of view. Things that you said, five, seven years ago or things you said in an interview that made sense to you at the time, I could pick that – I could pick that apart for two hours and be no closer to the truth than I would be giving you some half-assed answer, right now. I couldn’t even really tell you, what a liberal is. So therein lies the answer to your question.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
The statement sort of stands by itself, doesn’t it? I mean, does that mean you’re not a Liberal or that you came out of prison, not being Liberal?

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
Uh…are we promoting a movie, to me the thing is that it’s – I’m certainly not going to back pedal on anything I’ve said. But I wouldn’t say – actually I wouldn’t say, I am a republican, or liberal or a democrat. I think when – I was talking to the person, who is doing the interview that day and that just happened to be my opinion. That is the nice thing, as you can have opinions and they kind of change in flow.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Yeah, all that is life and that is great growing older I suppose, isn’t it.

[Robert Downey Jr.:] Yeah.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
I mean, you say, we’re promoting an interview, I mean promoting the movie. I mean obviously you’re doing a promotional round of interviews and that’s why we’re talking about the movie, but we also would like to talk a little bit about you and – I don’t how comfortable you are. You know – talking about yourself at the moment. I mean…

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
You have as much time as anyone will.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Yeah, well okay, well then let me just ask you a few more questions and you can answer me if you want to and not if you don’t want to. I mean, well I think we’ve got two – three more minutes on our – on our – on our agreement. I mean…

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
Your foot is starting to jump a little bit you better get to your next question.

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
You – um — the reason I’m asking about the past, is that you’ve talked in other interviews again about your relationship with your father and the roll of all of that in the – you knomw the dark periods you entered and taking drugs and drinking and all of that. And I just wondered whether – you know – you think you’re free of all of that? Or whether that is still something you…

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
I am sorry, I really don’t – what are we doing?

[Krishnan Guru-Murthy:]
Well I’m just asking questions that is all.

[Robert Downey Jr.:]
Right.
