CELEBUZZ VIDEO: Jon Favreau Only Has Time for ‘Iron’ Man Dates
Celebuzz caught up with director Jon Favreau at last night’s I Love You, Man premiere, which is perhaps about the only thing the Iron Man director has time for lately.
The flick, starring Paul Rudd and Jason Segel, centers around a guy who can’t seem to find the perfect male friend.
What does Favreau do on his man dates? Apparently filmmaking.
“I don’t have much time; I used to like to play poker, but now, between the kids and the movies…it tends to fill my schedule,” Favreau says.
But lucky for his crew and costars, he only populates his flicks with pals.
“That’s my time to really bond with my friends, is at work…I’m lucky to work with people I really like,” he said of the likes of star Robert Downey Jr.
And they seem to like him as well. Gwyneth Paltrow, who plays Pepper Potts in the Iron Man franchise, recently included Favreau in her weekly newsletter GOOP. She quizzed the director on his five favorite picks for DVD rentals.
