“You will never meet a more searingly sophisticated wit. Why? Because he gets the joke and the joke is often painful. He deeply understands that life is fleeting and if we’re not laughing, we’re dying,” added Robert Downey Jr.
Their friendship started before MCU, as Both Favreau and RDJ got their start in Hollywood in the 1980s. Later Favreau struggled to find solid footing in Hollywood and moved to direct films. On the other hand, RDJ dealt with his substance abuse in his early days. However, their camaraderie and friendship were still visible at the recent event.
