2015-04-23 09:17

Cape Town – Robert Downey Jr is currently very busy with promotional interviews for Avengers: Age of Ultron, but when this journalist went way off topic Downey Jr shut it down and walked out!

According to Buzzfeed, it all started when Krishnan Guru-Murthy, from Channel 4 news, asked Downey Jr about comments he made back in 2008 after coming out of prison.

He blatantly asked Downey Jr whether he changed his political beliefs in prison.

Downey’s initial response was…

But he then went on to say: "I’m certainly not going to back pedal on anything I have said, but I actually wouldn’t say that I am a Republican, a liberal, or a Democrat…

"I was talking to the person who interviewed me that day, and that just happened to be my opinion."

Guru-Murthy then dug a deeper hole with the next statement…

"Obviously you’re doing a promotional round of interviews and that is why we’re talking about the movie, but we also wanted to talk about you and I don’t know how comfortable you are talking about yourself."

Downey Jr, slowly starting to lose patience, responded…

Which clearly motivated Guru-Murthy in the wrong direction as he then stated that he had "a few more questions" that Downey Jr could choose to answer.

Downey Jr was not impressed as he looked to someone off camera hinting that he was very over the interview.

But Guru-Murthy pushed through and asked what he didn’t know would be his final question…

"You’ve talked in other interviews again about your relationship with your father and the role of that in the dark period you entered and taking drugs and drinking and all of that… I just wondered whether you think you’re free of all of that?"

Downey Jr then finally put a stop to Guru-Murthy’s inappropriate questions, politely got up and left…
