Robert Downey Jr., on having confidence in yourself (x).
Tony Stark everybody

there is only tony stark now
the transformation is complete
There may come a time when I don’t reblog this post but that day is not this day.
I just can’t
I literally can’t with you Martin.
ya know this man should inspire people. to be a drug addict, and an alcoholic in jail, and then become one of the best actors of all time making a couple million a year. thats why i love this man. he really gets it. he’s been through life, and he’s been through a pretty hard life at that. he teaches us to rise up, and fight our demons, to go out and be someone, to live our dreams and never give up, and never look back. and ya know what, i love this man for that. and i think you should too.
They’re pouring latex on him to make a false chest. So that they can place the arc reactor prop in him and make it legitimately look like it’s embedded in is flesh and with tears and scar tissue. The latex is colored so they can see where they are applying and how thick the layers are. It will then be airbrushed to his skintone and details like nipples scar tissue discoloration will be added.
Here’s that picture
Then the reactor prop is added to the dimple. Basically the latex becomes fake skin and they tear part of the center open to embed it.
Now you can see how realistic it looks.
I cannot express enough how much I love little behind the scenes things like this.
That moment when even Robert’s costars can’t tell the difference.
I’M 600% DONE.
OMFG I nearly spit Coke on my students taking a practice test
