So last week, I had the pleasure of (repeatedly telling superstars that it's 'such a pleasure to be in their company' - I really need a new line, like pronto) of meeting Don Cheadle (general legend, stars as The Iron Patriot in Iron Man 3 and you'll also know him from The Guard), Gwyneth Paltrow (not as icy as you might expect, stars as Pepper Potts in the franchise), Shane Black (incredibly accomplished director/go-to-guy for awesome action scripts), Recbecca Hall (fantastic young actress making waves in movies like The Town, TV series Parades End, Frost/Nixon and now this) and the one and only Sir Ben Kingsley (eh, Ghandi anyone? He also scared us pretty shitless in Sexy Beast).
Unfortunately, though we were psyched up to ninety at the thoughts of a one on one with the man himself, Robert Downey Jnr could not make our interview. Apparently he fell ill. Yes, I was very upset, but hey, these things happen, movie stars are human beings too; they get sick.
Alas we could not feature Iron Man in our Iron Man coverages, but nevertheless, the others were delightful, especially Rebecca Hall who I girl crushed all over.
Enjoy! Iron Man 3 hits Irish cinemas this Friday. You can check out our review for the movie on entertainment.ie tomorrow morning, bright and early.
