Gwyneth Paltrow criticizes Downey Jr.’s kiss

gwyneth_paltrowGwyneth Paltrow called Robert Downey Jr. a bad kisser. The actress locks lips with the actor in the forthcoming superhero sequel Iron Man 2 but the actor — who plays the title character and his alter ego Tony Stark – claims he deliberately toned down the passion to stop their smooch being “weird.” He said: “She said to me that I didn’t know what I was doing, like it didn’t feel good. I’m like, ‘You know what? First of all, we’re all friends, so what would be creepy would be if I was coming off all sexy to you-which by the way, I’ve done in movies and it creeps them out. So what am I going to creep you out for?'” However, despite Gwyneth’s criticism, the 45-year-old actor insists his co-star – who reprises her role as Pepper Potts in the sequel – really enjoyed their love scene.  He quipped: “I couldn’t get her off of me. It was embarrassing. Despite what she said on set, she still thinks about it.”

    If only we could return to the time when this typified the ‘gossip’ that came out of Hollywood — fun, harmless banter (at least I’m guessing she said he was a bad kisser in fun). I’m tired of cheating husbands, crazy singers/actresses who hate their father or have their father looking after them, drug use, drug abuse, and drunken (or sober) foolish behaviour and violence.

    i agree, the articles that have been coming out basically since i started coming here make actors and actresses look petty, pathetic and actually boring. you can only read so many articles based on someone being cheated on before you stop caring or before you stop reading. im sure theres tons of gossip that can be reported because stars are always being watched and listened to, so why not some sunny news for a while?
