Robert Downey Jr. on Terrence Howard flap



If you think Robert Downey Jr. had anything to do with Terrence Howard getting booted from Iron Man 2 for Don Cheadle, you're sorely mistaken. The actor tells MTV News that he's as taken aback as anyone. Well, except maybe Howard himself.

Tbdrobertdowney110708 "I had nothing to do with that decision," Downey says. "I love Terrence very very much. That’s all I’ll say because I haven’t talked to him yet."

Gee, it's only been about a month. Is it too hard to send a text message? But the show will go on, thanks to Cheadle.

“I’ve always admired Don," Downey says. "It’s one of those situations where I still don’t quite know what happened or why. Here’s what happens too: things happen and you wind up commenting on them before you’ve actually talked to the people and it’s in poor taste."

And yet, he continued to talk. You'd think he'd get to work on that phone call.
