Robert Downey Jr. recently spoke to Men's Fitness about getting into shape for The Avengers and Iron Man 3. In the article he commented on how surprising his casting was, due to his smaller body size.

Now, Us Weekly is reporting that the Iron Man actor is having custom shoes with three-inch lifts created for his role in the upcoming film, Iron Man 3.

"They're working on a special pair just for him," a source said. "The lift insole needs to be concealed in a high top shoe or boot. The highest that's offered the general public is 2 inches."

He needn't worry. Your legs are long enough if they reach the ground.
