Before I forget--

I just wanted to point out how the color of Bob’s heterochromatic brown eyes change depending on the background

Faded blue-green background = hunter green eyes

Faded deep blue background = golden brown eyes

With silver temples + silver goatee = gray/green-ish eyes

Plain white background = chocolate brown eyes

Those dumb lower lashes remain throughout.

“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.”

In this episode of Robert Downey Jr. Can’t Keep A Secret

“Is Spider-Man in Civil War?”

  • CHRIS EVANS:  “I can’t tell you anything about that. There are some things you remember from those list of no-no’s.”
  • SEBASTIAN STAN:  “I have no idea who Tom Holland is. I really don’t.”
  • KEVIN FEIGE:  “Listen, if there was a cosplayer running around that set when you were there, I don’t know what to tell you.”
  • RDJ:  “We’re looking around like, ‘Who thought that Falcon and Black Panther and Ant-Man and now Spider-Man …?’ I mean it’s like wow, this thing is just crazy!”

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.”

The highlights of RDJ’s acceptance/introduction speech tonight–

  • His lighthearted reference to his drug past: “I went in a bit of a NASA program of my own for a while.”
  • Sharing his award with Susan.
  • His bright orange, tinted reading glasses: “I want to welcome myself into middle age and put on these reading glasses.”
  • He’s a Peanuts fanboy: “I know all of their names. I know every episode.”
