Child Ironman Fan Disappointed at Meeting Robert Downey Jr.
Jaxson Denno, a cute 18-months-old boy, broke down in tears when he thought he was going to meet Ironman and got Robert Downey Jr. instead.
Denno was not to be convinced that the superstar was Ironman’s alter ego. Heather Denno, Jaxson’s mother, says her son "was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit."
Downey, Jr., who had been in the towns of Sunderland and Shelburne Falls in Massachusetts on his latest shoot for The Judge, did manage to eventually bring the toddler out of his misery.
"He was there for 10 minutes just to get a good picture and make Jaxson smile. And his people kept telling him he had to leave and was late for shooting, so I can't believe he stayed," says his mother. "He was amazing. You could tell he was a dad with a young son."
At least Jaxson can still see his real hero on DVD.
