Pet Peeve


Blogging Friends.... Well, Little Miss Secretive Writing Project continues to be in editing by me. I despise this task, and find it quite tedious at times. But so far, I'm pleased with my capabilities in re-reading and making this into something more!!
I have a pet peeve regarding Robert Downey Jr. fanatics and magazine journalists alike. So allow me to get it out of my system. Ready? Many fanatics and magazine journalists equate Robert Downey Jr. to his "alter ego" character Tony Stark. Really?! Anybody with even a small sense of observation can plainly see that they are nothing alike!! For instance. Tony? He is cool. Robert? He is a bit old-fashioned in the way he speaks--for the most part--reminding me of somebody's wise, experienced grandfather. Which I love, love, love!! Tony? He is arrogant, cocky, and "self-obsessed". Robert? He works very, very, very hard on humility. Tony? He is independent, and thinks he can handle everything on his own. Robert? The absolute opposite!! I mean, come on, people. There is a stark difference between Robert and Tony!! {No pun intended!!} I can look at photographs, or watch somebody's YouTube videos, and immediately tell when Robert Downey Jr. is "in character" as Tony Stark!! Because Mr. "Genius. Billionaire. Playboy. Philanthropist.". is a fictional comic book character!! Brought to life by Robert Downey Jr.!! Not the opposite!! Robert Downey Jr. is simply an incredibly gifted actor!! If anything. He reminds me more of Sherlock Holmes than Tony Stark. Now. Does Robert Downey Jr. infuse a little bit of himself with Tony Stark? Certainly!! Doesn't every actor? During Robert Downey Jr.'s globe-trotting promotional tour for "Iron Man 3"--which I have enjoyed following!!--he said this. I thought I'd share it.

"You know I play Tony Stark as this very brash, sarcastic, and confident guy, and I can be like that a little bit, but I find myself looking at these posters and sometimes kind of like wondering how this happened. My relationship with it has been one of a kind, with increasing humility and a lot of gratitude.” ~Robert Downey Jr.
 
There we go. The difference with Tony Stark is that he would be expecting all of these posters of himself. Am I correct? I think so!! Take that, fanatics and magazine journalists!! Take that.

We hope the editing is not too much of a chore but it actually sounds like you are enjoying it at times. Best to put it down and pick it up when you are in the mood. Good luck. We are still mystified as to what it is. Have a super Saturday.
Best wishes Molly
