He is best known for playing one of the most conceited superheroes in film history. Hollywood actor Robert Downey Jr – better known as Iron Man — says he won’t mind being like the superhero even in real life. “A jumpsuit like Iron Man will do all the treats for me,” says the actor.

Downey, who has starred in hits such as Sherlock Holmes and Tropic Thunder, says that when it comes to films, he likes to keep things simple. He says, “I’m not a method guy. I can’t be bothered to have a method.” While he hasn’t had a chance to meet any Bollywood biggies, Downey does remember meeting actor Chunky Pandey in June, earlier this year. “He is a nice guy,” says the actor. “I have watched a couple of Bollywood films, though I don’t really remember their names.”

He adds that a visit to India is a part of his bucket list: “India is definitely one of the places I want to visit and hope it happens soon.” And, unlike other tourists, he’ll have no trouble with Indian cuisines. He says, “I love butter chicken and chicken tikka... I really like the Indian spices.”
