Robert Downey Jr. graces the May cover of Men’s Journal in which he talks about how an ass-kicking martial art helped him find his focus and resurrect his career, professional BASE jumper Jeb Corliss on his attempt to execute the perilous no-chute landing, and an inside look at the brutal, murderous turf war over a libido-enhancing aphrodisiac fungus in Nepal. Below are some other highlights from his interview with MJ!

On advice for practicing Wing Chun, a martial arts discipline: “Seriously, don’t worry about looking like an idiot. It’s like life: The less self-conscious you are, the better it works. And remember, lots of ice and Advil afterward. Trust me on that one.”

On how Wing Chun helps him cope: “This is all about focus. Wing Chun teaches you what to concentrate on, whether you’re here or out in the world dealing with problems. It’s second nature for me now. I don’t even get to the point where there’s a problem.”

On being reluctant to punch a stuntman full in the mouth while filming Sherlock Holmes: “I was like, ‘I can’t or he’s not going to be able to play with his kids this weekend.’ And Guy (Ritchie) was basically saying, ‘He doesn’t have any kids.’ ”

On if he is worried about burnout from filming and promoting films: “You don’t worry about something that has already happened,” he says with resignation. “You don’t need to worry about your car breaking down when you’re already on the side of the street with the hood up. Worrying is done. The hubcaps have already come off going around the corners.”

On being an actor: “This is still art for commerce, at best. I consider myself to be a pain-in-the-ass artist who’s self-aware enough to still be tolerable. While I have a little bit of juice, I try not to rub it in anyone’s face, because it’s just disgusting. And I use the term ‘artist’ loosely.”

On his Iron Man character Tony Stark’s relationship with his dead father: “We’re having Tony go back and really deal with the ramifications of his lack of connection to his dad, his almost professional-stock, prop-smile answers, and how he’d been using Dad’s memory as a weapon against others. He’s really feeling hugely conflicted by assumptions about his dad’s feelings about him and whether or not there’s any real connection between them at the most basic level, which is: You’re not here anymore for this. Is there something you have for me, is there something you left for me, is there some sort of bread-crumb trail I can find that will help fill me at this point in my life?”

Mischa Barton was said to be devastated after hearing about a recent Twitter post from ex-boyfriend Brandon Davis that made cruel comments about her weight. (Read the nasty tweets here)

But now, Brandon tells In Touch exclusively that not only did he not make the taunts, he doesn’t even have a Twitter account! “I would never say anything nasty about Mischa, especially about her weight,” the oil heir tells In Touch.

“I am pissed that someone stole my identity and started Twittering things.”

Even his friend Michele Gargani knows he doesn’t do the whole Internet thing: “He has no clue what Twitter is, so it is obviously a fake account.”

One insider reports that Mischa has been offered $100,000 to publicly lose weight with Jenny Craig, although the company denies that claim.

Besides, says the insider, “Mischa’s not that fat and is working out with a trainer to get her body back to what it was before.”

Jessica: “I Absolutely Was Not Wearing Makeup” on Marie Claire

Jessica Simpson has a message to those who think she wore concealer or blush on April’s Marie Claire cover: “I absolutely was not wearing makeup,” she told UsMagazine.com Monday at a Good Housekeeping bash in NYC. “Look at the cover — you can tell! My nose has been broken a couple of times. If you look at a retouched cover of me and you look at the Marie Claire cover, you can see there’s a big difference.”

Why no makeup?

“I really wanted to show women that I’m just a normal person,” she said. “I take the pictures. I don’t know what the magazine is going to do with it after that. I don’t know what the photographer is going to do with it after that, so it was important for me to make sure that they absolutely did not retouch. I just wanted people to see how I really am.”

She also told Us she was wearing a wig in those infamous photos she posed on Twitter Monday.

“I was just having fun,” she told Us of wearing a 60s-inspired pixie cut wig.

Though her mother Tina told Us her daughter would never chop off her hair, Jessica told Us: “Never say never! Maybe, but not right now!”

She also filled Us in on her love life, echoing previous remarks that she’d like to date a doctor or a chef.

“I’m just looking for a normal man!” she told Us. “Just somebody that’s normal! That’s it!”
