Robert Downey Jr commenced his journey in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as Tony Stark in 2008 film, Iron Man. It was also the beginning of MCU and today, the universe has only grown bigger and better. Along with RDJ, actress Gwyneth Paltrow also made her entry in MCU as Pepper Potts.
Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts first played his trusty assistant and went on to become the SEO of Stark Industries. Pepper was also Iron Man’s love interest throughout the MCU. We’ve seen several romantic moments between Stark and Potts. Robert Downey Jr also shared an onscreen kiss with Gwyneth in the films. So did that ever bother his wife Susan Downey? Read on.
If you think Susan Downey had any problem with Robert Downey Jr kissing Gwyneth Paltrow on screen, you are wrong. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar earlier, Susan opened up about the same. She said, “Oddly, there’s nothing strange about it. Gwyneth’s so funny because they have great on-screen chemistry, but afterwards, she’d be like, ‘Ugh, it’s like kissing my brother.”
In fact, Robert Downey Jr, Susan Downey and Gwyneth are good friends in real life. The trio often shares fun banter on their social media pages.
Meanwhile, after Avengers: Endgame, Robert Downey Jr’s journey as Iron Man has come to an end. His character sacrificed his life in Endgame to kill Thanos. But there are speculations that he might have a special appearance in Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow. But the news is not confirmed yet.
