Robert Downey Jr. was on The Howard Stern Show yesterday to pimp out the movie that will drop the entire contents of the Federal Reserve into his checking account and Howard brought up that interview where the veins in his ass lips filled with rage and he had to quit that bitch before he exploded. During an interview with Channel 4 in the UK, journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy went from asking RDJ fluffy questions about the Avengers to asking him about his political views and if he thinks he’ll ever fall off the wagon. At the time, RDJ was pissed about the interview going into Diane Sawyer territory, but he didn’t go off on Krishnan. But yesterday on Howard, RDJ told us how he really feels.
RDJ told Howard that he wishes he would’ve ejected himself from that interview earlier. RDJ went on to say that Krishnan Guru-Murthy is a parasite with Syphilis. So basically, RDJ called him a “Paris Hilton.” Here’s RDJ’s raw thoughts on Krishnan Guru-Murthy and that entire train wreck of an interview (via Entertainment Weekly):
“I just wish I’d left sooner. I’m one of those guys who I’m always assuming the social, kind of, decorum is in play. And that we’re promoting a superhero movie, a lot of kids are going to see it, and this has nothing to do with your creepy, dark agenda that I’m feeling all of a sudden, like, ashamed and obligated to accommodate your weirdo shit. You know what? You are a bottom-feeding muckraker.
The assumption is that there’s a button that because you’ve sat down [for an interview] there you’re going to be scrutinized like you’re a kiddy fiddler who’s running for mayor. What I have to do in the future is give myself permission to say, ‘That is more than likely a syphilitic parasite and i need to distance myself from this clown. Otherwise i’m probably gonna put hands on this clown and then there’s a real story!”
In a piece for The Guardian, Krishnan told his side. He said that Channel 4 doesn’t do promotional puff pieces and when the PR people asked him what he was planning to talk to RDJ about, he said he was going to ask questions about the movie as well as questions about being in jail and his past with the bad shit.
Okay, I get that RDJ thought he was going to sit down for an easy, softball interview about being Iron Man and didn’t appreciate getting splattered in the face with questions about his “darker days.” I mean, RDJ has talked about that stuff before and I would have much rather Krishnan ask him questions we want answers to like how big is Chris Hemsworth’s crotch hammer. But DAMN! Is it that serious? RDJ acts like that was the worst three minutes of his life. If RDJ was that mad, he should’ve calmly pulled out his cell phone and called his business manager to tell them to buy Channel 4 immediately. Then RDJ should’ve let Krishnan know that he’s been demoted from reporter to full-time bottom feeder and one of his duties include polishing RDJ’s b-hole with his tongue. That’s what a normal one percenter would do! And I hate myself for not accidentally typing “doodies” instead of “duties.”
