Watch Robert Downey Jr. Shut Down Idiot Interviewer and Walk Out

Most people know Robert Downey Jr. as Iron Man, but how many know about his past life as a druggie? He was Charlie Sheen with more talent. Sheen got on TV, but Downey Jr. got into movies. Cha-ching! Downey spent time in jail before he landed the big roles, yet interviewers still want to dredge up the past.

England Channel 4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy gets all Barbara Walters-y with Downey. Downey plays along for a couple of questions, but keeps shooting his publicist looks like ‘wtf?’ When he’s not doing that, he’s shooting imaginary lasers into the interviewer.

Right before walking out, Downey tells the interviewer he’s okay, but that it was getting ‘a little Diane Sawyer-y.’ In other words, Downey tactfully told the guy he was a prick.

Seems like this asshat interviewer riles up celebs on purpose. Back in 2013, he asked Quentin Tarantino questions that ultimately caused the agitated director to say to Guru-Murthy, “I’m shutting your butt down”.

Guru-Murthy, troll game on point.
