London: Robert Downey Jr claims he deliberately toned down the passion with co-star Gwyneth Paltrow to stop their smooch being "weird" in `Iron Man 2`.

"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?" imdb.com quoted Downey as saying.

Despite Gwyneth`s criticism, the 45-year-old actor insists his co-star really enjoyed their love scene.

"I couldn`t get her off of me. It was embarrassing. Despite what she said on set, she still thinks about it," he added.
