Robert Downey Jr is pretty widely recognised as being THE BEST, so I’m sure it’ll be very shocking to hear that he’s responsible for making an 18-month-old little boy cry. How heartless can you be, man?
I kid, of course – little Jaxson Denno was totally fine in the end. His mom told him that the new Iron Man film was shooting in their Massachusetts hometown and he was pretty upset when he met not Iron Man himself but… RDJ without his costume. Uh oh!
Not to worry – once he came over to talk to the little boy and his mother, Jaxson perked up.
“He was fine as soon as he talked to him,” Jaxson’s mother, Heather Denno, told PEOPLE, explaining that her young son “was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn’t. Well, not Iron Man in the suit.”
Right, so Robert Downey Jr is the best after all. Whew, that was a close call.
