AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR Star Chris Pratt Shares Some Surprising Stories About Working With Robert Downey Jr.

In a new interview, Chris Pratt (Star-Lord) sheds some light on what it's been like working with Robert Downey Jr. and reveals some touching stories about the face of the Marvel Cinematic Universe...

Avengers: Infinity War is going to bring together Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the Guardians of the Galaxy to do battle with Thanos and that alone is reason enough to be excited about Marvel Studios' next movie. During a recent chat with Empire Magazine, Chris Pratt was asked about working alongside Robert Downey Jr. and shared some very interesting insight into how the actor conducts himself. 

While you might think Downey keeps himself to himself and stays in his massive trailer between takes, it turns out that he's willing to do anything and everything to help his fellow actors and went Pratt was in need, the Iron Man star was quick to give him a helping hand on the set of Avengers: Infinity War


"Man, he set a really amazing tone. He's a bit like Tony Stark himself. I think a lot of what makes Tony Stark are the same qualities that make Downey great. I think Downey is about as rich as Tony Stark now. [Laughs] He really takes care of the actors around him in a way I've never seen before. I was a little under the weather and pushing really hard on the days I was working. He came up to me and said, 'You doing alright?' I said, 'Yeah, I've got a little sore throat.' Within ten minutes there was a person here giving me all these herbs and taking care of me. He offered me the use of his trailer where I could sit down and use some of his hi-tech healing gadgets. It was amazing. I'm living my best life."

Pratt went on to reveal that he actually heard from Downey when he was first cast as Star-Lord in Guardians of the Galaxy and it's something which has had a significant impact on him moving forward.

"When I first arrived in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Downey was the first to call and tell me, 'Hey man, welcome. If there's anything you need, I will help. There are so few people on the planet who are going through what you're going through right now. I have, so I'm here. I'll always answer the phone.' I feel completely empowered to pay it forward with Tom or Chadwick. I'm not saying that I'm senior to them, other than I got that experience of opening a movie with Marvel and being along for the ride. Now I just really feel compelled to offer them, even if it's a fraction of what Downey was able to offer me, and just say, 'Anything you need, you let me know.'"

So, there you have it, a look into what it's like working alongside the man who first brought Iron Man to life back in 2008! The lines between Tony Stark and Robert Downey Jr. have clearly blurred as the years have passed and the actor is definitely a different man to what he was back in the 1990s.
