Hollywood superstar Robert Downey Jr is one of the biggest stars on the face of the Earth, thanks a great deal to the fact that he plays the role of Tony Stark aka Iron Man in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While he may well be a big star in terms of reputation in Hollywood, Robert has become renowned for his lack of height over the past few years, needing platforms to boost his height for his role in the Marvel movies.
Robert Downey Jr is believed to be around 1.73m tall, which is around 5 feet 9 inches, which is clearly not tall enough to pull off Tony Stark without a little help. It has now been confirmed that Robert Downey Jr's height, or lack of it, has been mocked on the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, with his production chair being replaced with a child size version, not that it bothered Robert too much.
Seeing the funny side of things, Robert Downey Jr took to his official Twitter account to post a picture of a row of production chairs with the names of the actors on the backs. There in the middle of the row was the child size chair with the name Robert Downey Jr across the back. Along with the picture Robert added the caption "Lights, camera, assemble!"
While fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe love to see pictures from the set of Avengers: Age of Ultron, it seems that Marvel do not take too kindly to it, with Mark Ruffalo recently getting in trouble for posting pictures from the set of the movie.
Avengers: Age of Ultron will open on May 1, 2015 in both the US and the UK.
