Are you counting down the days until Iron Man 3 opens in theatres? I am and one part I’m really looking forward to is seeing Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts wear the Iron Man suit herself. Gwyneth taped a segment for the Graham Norton Show in the UK and she spoke about having to wear the suit and how she wasn’t looking forward to it because co-star Robert Downey Jr. always made it seem quite a big deal. She explains;
“I get to do a bit of action and I get to wear the Iron Man suit for a while – it’s very cool.
“It’s quite cumbersome but not so bad. I thought it was going to be terrible because in the first two movies Robert would put on the suit and start sweating, he’d have a nervous breakdown and would meditate and cry. He was in hell.
“So, I was like, ‘Wow, I’d better start mentally preparing myself for the suit,’ and I put it on and was like, ‘This guy is a wimp, it’s really not that bad.’ “
Ha! I’m sure RDJ won’t mind Gwyneth calling him a wimp though, they seem to have a pretty great relationship. That suit does look like it would be quite the pain to wear though and I’m sure that they’ve made it more comfortable since the first movie, right?
