Robert Downey, Jr. was unhappy about questions Krishnan Guru-Murthy of UK’s Channel 4 was asking and left before the interview was over.

…he interviewed actor Robert Downey Jr about the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. Toward the end of the 7-minute interview, Guru-Murthy started asking personal questions about Downey Jr.’s time in prison, his politics, and his family.

“Are we promoting a movie?” the star asks, before answering the politics question. Then Guru-Murthy hit too close to home.

“I’m sorry… I really don’t… What are we doing?,” Downey asks, before saying: “Bye.”

As we walks out, Downey Jr. says to Guru-Murthy, “You seem okay. It was just getting a little too Diane Sawyer.”

    Probably had a bit of some stuff and was off of his game. He didn’t expect serious questions.
