Watch: Robert Downey Jr walks out of a very awkward interview

“Your foot’s started jumping, you better get to the next question.”

ROBERT DOWNEY JR is one of the world’s most famous actors.

But even he has his off days.

During an interview with Channel 4 reporter Krishnan Guru-Murthy, Downey Jr took exception to being asked about his past.

Downey Jr, who is now sober, had a well-publicised battle with addiction, and a spell in prison.

But when he’s publicising his movie, he really, really doesn’t want to talk about the past.

The last thing Downey Jr says to Guru-Murthy? “It was all getting a bit Diane Sawyer.”

Here’s the interview – it starts getting morto from about 5 minutes in.
