You Will Fall In Love With This Kid Crying After He Meets Iron Man

Robert Downey Jr. takes his superhero duties very seriously.

When he came across a pint-size superfan in Sunderland, Mass., where he’s filming The Judge, he didn’t quite get the greeting the movie star is probably used to when 1 1/2-year-old Jaxson Denno burst into tears.

“I told Jaxson, ‘look, there’s Iron Man! He was looking everywhere and didn’t see him,” his mom Heather Denno told Celebuzz with a laugh. “He was looking for the costume. So he thought it was a stranger coming toward him and he put his hands over his face and started crying. He’s never done that with anyone!”

But she insists Downey ended up truly saving the day because her son stopped his sobbing long enough to enjoy the moment.

“He was there for 10 minutes just to get a good picture and make Jaxson smile. And his people kept telling him he had to leave and was late for shooting, so I can’t believe he stayed.

“He was amazing. You could tell he was a dad with a young son.”
