Robert Downey Jr: "...the better the writing is, the more annoying it is..." The man who is Tony Stark graces the cover of Off Camera issue #5 and sits down with the host of this magazine/website/podcast/television show, the photographer/director Sam Jones.
RDJ talks about his work process with scripts...
"Since working with Jon Favreau on the first Iron Man, I have practically zero regard for what is physically printed on the pages when I go to work. And sometimes, the better the writing is, the more annoying it is, because it's more likely I will not be able to innovate within it."
...and about looking forward to life after Iron Man, The Avengers and Sherlock Holmes:
"... transitions are always tough, you know? You simultaneously feel limited by something but also comforted by it. And truth be told, the Iron Man trilogy and The Avengers and the Sherlock series, none of that's been limiting. It's given me an immense amount of freedom, but like you said, time takes time and contracts run for a certain period. So the nice thing now is transitioning into having this production company with the missus, and we're going to start alighting to possibly greener pastures and other stuff."
