Judge not RDJ, he’s just be­ing him­self . . .

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - TICKET STUBS - EMILY LONG­WORTH

Robert Downey Jr re­cently em­barked on a mag­i­cal mys­tery press tour for this month’s re­lease of The Judge, which has seen him aeri­ally saunter from one se­cret lo­ca­tion to the next with the wink-and-el­bow lan­guage of the Fa­mous Five.

He may yet ar­rive at a lo­ca­tion near you (soon, and when you least ex­pect it – in fact he’s be­hind you right now), since the press tour has threat­ened to visit a slew of “do­mes­tic/ in­ter­na­tional” venues.

His Face­book page fea­tures RDJ wear­ing a se­ries of ques­tion­able out­fits as he trav­els to in­ter­views in un­ex­pected lo­ca­tions, from a Chicago law school to an Ohio Air Force base.

He’s also been back­track­ing on his com­ments about an Iron Man 4. After he ca­su­ally pro­fessed his wishes to have Mel Gib­son di­rect any fu­ture in­stal­ments, he’s been hounded with will they/won’t they ques­tion­ing.

His spon­ta­neous ef­forts are do­ing plenty to re­in­force his hap­penin’ im­age, a pre-emp­tive strike on him ever be­ing nick­named Old Man Ju­nior. It seems there’s almost noth­ing RDJ could do that wouldn’t please the masses. Un­til he ceases to ex­hibit the same heart-rend­ing adora­bil­ity as a lit­ter of fuzzy baby an­i­mals, the world re­mains in love with his flaunt­ing.
