Robert Downey Jr. visits Leno, and Mindy Kaling swoons

Posted on

Iron Man 2 is just a day away from kicking off the summer movie season, so star Robert Downey Jr. stopped by The Tonight Show for a chat about…horses? “I’m terrified of horses,” says Downey, who’s apparently not a fan despite the fact that Jamie Foxx gave him a pair for his last birthday.”They’re kind of like 800 lb. cats.” Other topics covered included Downey’s scruffy look (“There’s a team of consummate professionals keeping me from looking my age.”) and his mental well-being (“Therapy is great!”).

Then Office star Mindy Kaling took the couch and unleashed a torrent of gush over Downey. “He’s such a badass. He’s wearing ripped jeans!” She confessed that Downey’s pics Soapdish and Sherlock Holmes are two of her faves, prompting a left-out Leno to quip, “Well, I’ll let you kids talk.” Check out the clips below!
