Robert Downey Jr. Getting Shoe Lifts For 'Iron Man 3'

NY Post:

Robert Downey Jr. is hoping to look taller than his 5-foot-8, a report claims.

According to Us Weekly, Downey's stylist has requested shoes with three-inch built-in lifts to wear while filming "Iron Man 3."

"They're working on a special pair just for him," a source said. "The lift insole needs to be concealed in a high top shoe or boot. The highest that's offered the general public is 2 inches."

While Downey has not commented on his lifts per se, he did recently tell Men's Fitness magazine that he was surprised to be cast in the action hero franchise given his compact body type.

The story is too old to be commented.

If that what it what. They do what they have to do. I wouldn't know the difference and no one else would either if people didn't advertise it.
