With Iron Man 2 making headlines for all the wrong reasons - following the controversial replacement of Terrence Howard with Don Cheadle in the role of Colonel Rhodes - star Robert Downey Jr. is trying to stay diplomatic.
Here's what he had to say about the cast shake-up:
"I had nothing to do with that decision. I love Terrence very very much. That’s all I’ll say because I haven’t talked to him yet."
The actor added:
"I’ve always admired Don [Cheadle]. It’s one of those situations where I still don’t quite know what happened or why. Here’s what happens too: things happen and you wind up commenting on them before you’ve actually talked to the people and it’s in poor taste."
