Ugh. Goopy? Come on.
Robert Downey Jr. was on The Howard Stern Show yesterday to promote, promote promote and after hinting that Gwyneth’s Iron Man character will probably make an appearance in another Marvel movie, the conversation turned to how his wife, Susan Downey. And, how she’s cool with her husband making out with Gwyneth on-screen. So much so, that Gwyn is Robert’s free pass, because I guess if you’re going to mess around with anyone, make it ORGANIC.
In case you’re not familiar with the concept of the “Free Pass“, it’s an agreement that one person presents to the person they’re with that grants them permission to mess around with whomever they want. Sometimes it’s someone famous, sometimes not. Anyhow, Gwyneth Paltrow is RDJ’s free pass, and he gets to make out with his free pass anytime he Iron Mans. Not to shabby of an arrangement, I guess!
“I’m very happily married … but I guess I could dream a bit. My ‘free pass’ is, because her and Susan are such good friends, is Paltrow. I gotta get her back in these movies, so I can make out with her on screen again.”
HOWEVER THERE ARE FREE PASS STIPULATIONS: RDJ says his wife doesn’t care what happens while the cameras are rolling, but that’s about as far as his Free Pass goes. So no making out over crafty, you creeps!
