Robert Downey, Jr. was feeling a little left out at a recent Iron Man 3 press conference in Paris, France after his co-star Gwyneth Paltrow answered all reporters' questions in perfect French. The actor, who portrays superhero Iron Man and his alter ego Tony Stark in the franchise, was impressed as the blonde beauty showed off her linguistic skills in the city last weekend (13-14Apr13), but he couldn't help but interrupt the discussion to poke fun at the differences in their backgrounds - as Paltrow had been given a private education, while Downey, Jr., who has spent time in and out of jail and rehab, dropped out of high school as a teen. He told the gathered reporters, "I feel like an a**hole. I would've spoken French but I was raised by wolves. She went to all these nice schools and they spent all this God damn money and now she's all fancy (speaking French) and you just love her! I am an animal. I'm an ugly American. They don't teach French in jail!"
