“You know, 90% of the country believes in ghosts? Less than a third believes in evolution? 35% can correctly identify Homer Simpson and the fictional town which he resides. And less than 1% knows the name Thurgood Marshall. But when you put 12 Americans together in a jury and ask for justice? Something just out of brilliance happens. Often as not, they get it right.”
Robert Downey Jr. was one of the guests in attendance of what was initially thought to be a simple birthday party but ended up being the surprise wedding of Jennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux on August 5, 2015. He gave a toast to the couple during the reception. [TMZ]
RDJ was the one who had introduced the couple to each other back in 2007 while filming Tropic Thunder in Hawaii. Theroux was the film’s screenwriter and Aniston has been a friend of Robert’s for years, at that time in town for vacation.
“Marvel has been so smart about casting unexpected people for these roles. Look at what Robert Downey brought to Iron Man. A real, dry sense of humor and a complexity to his hero balance … I think that the way these Marvel heroes are written, the female superheroes included, do have complexity and flaws. But I think when they are translated into film, the women can become these ultimate goddesses of perfection and I would love to create a female Marvel character who is just as unexpected and complex as some of the male characters as Iron Man.”
