“We love working together. It’s hard not to work together and, believe me, I know my place. Making movies is so energy and time-consuming that it takes you away from your real life for big chunks of time and, so, I get to escape with her as opposed to from her,” quoted him as saying.

The Iron Man star also claimed having a wife who works in the movie industry has helped him understand how much of a “creep” he can be, reports the website. “Because I’m married to a producer, I’m also kind of being given an education into what it’s like to manage a bunch of creeps like me, and what it actually takes to get something done.”

Meanwhile Downey Jr. has revived the superhero for an upcoming sequel, which will see his character pitched against villainous Whiplash, played by Mickey Rourke and he was fascinated by his co-star’s unusual acting technique, because Rourke used photographs of his beloved chihuahuas to help him portray tearful moments, reports “He would have someone holding pictures of recently deceased pets off camera to make him feel sad or whatever for a scene. It was all serious stuff. I’ve never seen anything like it,” he said.
