Vincent D'Onofrio Confirms That Robert Downey Jr. Hides Food All Over Movie Sets

The Weird Thing Robert Downey Jr. Hides On Movie Sets

Fans of 2012's blockbuster hit "The Avengers" certainly noticed a quirk throughout the film: Robert Downey Jr. was always eating. Rumor had it that Downey was bringing his own food to set, hiding it and eating during scenes. It provided comic relief, so the film's producers let it be.

In a HuffPost Live interview Friday, Vincent D'Onofrio — set to co-star alongside Downey in the upcoming flick "The Judge" — confirmed that Downey indeed hides food throughout the set. And that's about all he would say.

"Downey does hide food all over set," D'Onofrio told host Marc Lamont Hill. "I'm not going to tell you why. But he does. It makes perfect sense."

"The Judge," which also stars BIlly Bob Thornton and Robert Duvall, hits theaters Oct. 10.
