Robert Downey, Jr. Walks Out Of Interview After Question About His Past (Video)


It's no secret actor Robert Downey, Jr. had a long fight against drug addiction that led to arrest and a myriad of personal problems.

But when the actor signed up to promote his new film, he wasn't about to field probing questions from inquisitive journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy – best known for memorably infuriating Quentin Tarantino during a 2013 "Django Unchained" interview.

During a recent interview promoting "Avengers: Age Of Ultron," Downey became visibly frustrated by Channel 4 News's Guru-Murthy hesitantly asking about his history with drugs.

Without a second thought, the actor flashed his trademark smile and walked out.

Stick to the "Avengers" next time, Guru-Murthy.

Downey was not having it with Guru-Murthy's probing questions.

The journalist later tweeted about the event, seemingly unfazed.

According to him, all the interview questions had been previously approved by Downey's team.
