Robert Downey Jr makes toddler cry not being in `Iron Man` costume

London: Robert Downey Jr. left an 18-month-old fan in tears because he wasn`t the `real` Iron Man.

The 48-year-old star, who has played the role of the superhero in three installments of the ` Iron Man` franchise, made the toddler, Jaxson Denno, weep as he was not wearing the character`s red and gold suit, the Sun reported.

Denno and her mum Heather, from Sunderland and Shelburne Falls in Massachusetts, US, met the actor during the filming of his latest movie ` The Judge ` near their home.

Downey Jr., who was dressed in ordinary clothes rather than his famous superhero gear, made the kid cry as soon as the child saw his simple outfit.

The father-of-two tried his best to cheer up Denno by pulling faces and posing for the camera with him.

The boy`s mother said that her son was fine as soon as he talked to him and although she kept telling him that Downey Jr. was Iron man, her son knew he wasn`t.
