Robert Downey Jr. Walks Out After Questions In 'Avengers' Interview

Robert Downey Jr. walked out of an interview during the 'Avengers' press tour after the interviewer wanted to know more about the actor's "dark period."

Things took an awkward turn when British journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy compared Iron Man becoming "more likable" and "a better man" to Downey's personal journey.

He then brought up a quote the actor made during a 2008 New York Times interview about his time in prison. Downey was becoming visibly agitated throughout.

"The reason I'm asking you about the past is you've talked in other interviews, again, about your relationship with your father and the role of all of that in the dark periods you entered, taking drugs, drinking and all of that," Guru-Murthy replied.

"And I just wondered whether you're free of all of that or whether you think you're free of all of that or whether that's still..."

That's when he was cut off by a frustrated Downey: "I'm sorry," he interrupted. "I really don't... What are we doing?"

Downey looked towards his publicist and got up to leave.

"You seem okay, it's just getting a little Diane Sawyer in here," he said on his way out.
