Normally film critics predict Oscar Winners... not the actors themselves right? Well Robert Downey Jr is! He talks about it in the new issue of GQ
“I’m probably one of the best, But it’s not that big a deal. It’s not like this is the greatest swath or generation of actors that has ever come down the pike.”
Ok so why the win...
“Because I’m young enough, and I’m running down being occupied with these kind of genre movies, close enough. Even the next thing we’re doing with [my wife, Susan Downey], I’m so confident about it. It’s the best script the studio has; it’s the best thing I’ve read in years. Look, even if I don’t get one directly, eventually they’re just going to have to give me one when I get old. So no matter how you slice it, I’m getting one.”
He also talks contracts ending for the Iron Man Series, "Fortunately I've been around the block enough -- I'm not ill-prepared. And I love change. I love it when a lightning bolt hits the genny and you're down for two hours on the set. Now, this isn't a lightning strike, this is like the warning of a gathering storm." :(
