More Reasons to Love Robert Downey Jr.: He Wore Lederhosen to a German ‘Iron Man 3’ Photo Call

Robert Downey Jr. arrived at a press event for ‘Iron Man 3’ in Germany clad in lederhosen. Here is a picture of it, because gosh darn it, you deserve it.

Full disclosure: This photo is actually a couple of days old; the photo call in question occurred on April 12. I’m not totally sure why or how it took us this long to find it, but now that we have, we just have to share it with you.

After leaving his fly undone at the Seoul premiere of Iron Man 3, our boy Robert Downey Jr. followed it up by arriving at a press event in Munich clad in traditional German lederhosen. His costar, Gwyneth Paltrow, went for something a little less flashy; looking immaculate in a white belted Kaufmanfranco frock, she took it all in stride as she stood by RDJ’s side.

Iron Man 3 was originally slated to have its London premiere tonight, but it’s reportedly been pushed back to Thursday to make way for Margaret Thatcher’s funeral. I’m going to try really hard to refrain from making the obligatory Iron Man/Iron Lady joke… whoops. Too late.
