Those of you who ship Robert Downey Jr’s Tony Stark and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Pepper Potts may have to hold on to something as this is going to make your hearts skip a beat!
Paltrow recently rang in her 47th birthday on 27th September and her co-star from ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and the ‘Iron Man’ trilogy, Robert Downey Jr took to Instagram to dedicate a special post to his onscreen sweetheart.
On the special occasion, RDJ revisited a memorable moment from ‘Iron Man 3’, wherein Pepper Potts, in a very kick-ass manner, singlehandedly (and also with a little help from the Extremis virus) thwarts a threat to Tony’s life, leading him to lovingly refer to her as ‘Honey’- a moment that surely must have given every theatre-goer and Marvel aficionado just the right amount of feels. RDJ shared this moment in the form of a gif on his Instagram handle with the hashtag #happybirthday and the caption- “Here’s to another one around the sun…I hope your birthday is as lit as you are @GwynethPaltrow.” Furthermore, he also tweeted the same birthday message, upping the ‘aww’ quotient and sent the fanbase on Twitter on a nostalgia-laden trip down memory lane.
On spotting the sweet little note left by the Hollywood actor to his beloved co-star, fans too couldn’t resist and instantly took to the comments section on Instagram to shower the heartiest birthday wishes on the actress. Many expressed the major missing they felt ever since they last witnessed Tony and Pepper’s crackling chemistry in ‘Avengers: Endgame’ and begged for a reunion from both the actors. Other celebrities like close pal, Chelsea Handler too wished the actress a very happy birthday by literally singing her the birthday song in the shower!
Previously, Gwyneth had also showered her ‘Iron Man’ with birthday wishes when RDJ had turned 54 and it is indeed heart-warming to see these two get along so well both onscreen as well as off-screen.
