Lord Please Don't Let This Happen to Me! 

I feel so sorry for UK Journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy. Robert Downey Jr. walked out of their interview promoting "Avengers: Age of Ultron." That's the key word here, promoting. But Guru-Murthy was more interested in Downey Jr.'s past including his relationship with his father and previous drug use.

So maybe I really don't feel sorry for Guru-Murthy. He should know that during press junkets, questions must be about the film that's being promoted, and if you have to ask something personal, it must revolve around the movie.

At one point, Downey Jr. even asked if they're supposed to be promoting a movie! To which Guru-Murthy, maybe because of over zealousness, ignored.

I've done my share of press junkets and so far, no one has walked out on me...yet. Please cinema gods, don't let this happen to little, old me!

At the end of the clip below, Downey Jr. abruptly stood up and hurriedly took off his microphone. And then faced the surprised Guru-Murthy and said "It's getting a little Diane Sawyer in here."

The next time I interview Downey Jr., I'll tell him not to worry, I won't go Diane Sawyer on him!

Here's the video of their interview:
