IRON MAN 3 PRESS JUNKET: Robert Downey Jr. Expertly Deflects Question About Boston Bombings During Press Conference
I don't know about you, but I don't like stars to get all political or preachy. I mean, who really cares what an actor thinks about anything that is not in his/her wheelhouse?

Well, for all those "know-it-all" celebrities out there... Take a lesson from Robert Downey Jr., who, when asked about the Boston Bombings during the Iron Man 3 press conference, did a wonderful job answering (and NOT answering) the question...
Robert Downey Jr. is asked about Boston Bombings during IM3 press conference and expertly deflects the question with humor and good taste.

Marvel Studios’ “Iron Man 3” pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against an enemy whose reach knows no bounds. When Stark finds his personal world destroyed at his enemy's hands, he embarks on a harrowing quest to find those responsible. This journey, at every turn, will test his mettle. With his back against the wall, Stark is left to survive by his own devices, relying on his ingenuity and instincts to protect those closest to him. As he fights his way back, Stark discovers the answer to the question that has secretly haunted him: does the man make the suit or does the suit make the man?
