It's Impossible Not to Cringe Watching Robert Downey Jr. Walk Out of This Interview

Robert Downey Jr. has been in the spotlight for three decades, but that doesn't mean he's an open book. In a recent interview for his upcoming movie, Avengers: Age of Ultron, he became visibly uncomfortable when Channel 4 news reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy started asking questions about his personal life. He tried to be a good sport, but he snapped after the reporter asks about his relationship with his father. "I'm sorry, what are we doing?" he said. "I'm just asking questions, that's all," Guru-Murthy replied. Downey Jr. then just got up, said "Bye," and walked out. The actor is very selective about the press he agrees to do for films, so it's a bummer for Channel 4 that they're probably off his list from now on. Check out the video above; the awkward part starts at 5:35.
