Robert Downey Jr. would surely be considered one of the most famous men in the world. I mean, who hasn’t fangirled over RDJ? His recent performance in Oppenheimer brought him into the limelight again, and in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel, he revealed he’s not above fangirling himself.

Because of his schedule, Robert wasn’t able to attend any of the official Oppenheimer premiers. Instead, he hosted one himself in The Hamptons, New York.

He gathered his famous friends there to enjoy the film.

“There’s Michael J. Fox, there’s Spielberg,” RDJ recalled about the evening. However, one guest stood out above the rest.

“I sit down and the movie starts and I realize I’m sitting next to Paul McCartney,” Robert Downey Jr. explained. He was totally and completely starstruck.

RDJ went on to describe how he was smelling his cologne and, eventually, linked up his breath to match with Paul’s. He was in a pure starstruck spot.

“I didn’t even watch the movie,” Robert Downey Jr. said about his experience next to Paul McCartney.

“I still find myself fanboying out all the time because it’s just incredible that we get to do this,” he said.

What a gracious guest and a hilarious incident!
