Double Talk: Robert Downey Jr. & Zach Galifianakis
They Get Wild and Crazy in Due Date, but Off-Camera These Guys Aren't Afraid to Talk Jazz Shoes and Fatherhood
DOWNEY: I don't usually have toys with me. But I love the idea of a guy who always has a whoopee cushion with him wherever he goes.
GALIFIANAKIS: You should carry a whoopee cushion so that if paparazzi follow you, you can pretend to start answering a question and say, "well, that's interesting . . ." and then just let the thing blow.
You guys spent a lot of time filming together. What's the most annoying thing about your costar?
DOWNEY: He has a tic-
GALIFIANAKIS: I thought I had that tic removed! Is this going to be embarrassing? Is it my breathing?
DOWNEY: He doesn't like foul language anywhere near the workspace. Whereas my F-bomb count was embarrassing.
I find that hard to believe.
DOWNEY: Absolutely true! But he has this other tic: When he stumbles on a line, he gets stuck, and it sounds like somebody who's off their medication and is really upset.
GALIFIANAKIS: He's right. And well-spoken.
Zach, how did you come up with your girlish strut in this movie?
GALIFIANAKIS: Well, I think the tight jeans I wore had a little something to do with it. The crampage-it was created out of discomfort.
DOWNEY: What about the Capezio dance shoes you wore, did they help?
GALIFIANAKIS: You know what's strange? Everybody is talking about the Capezios, and nobody is talking about the Lilith Fair T-shirt I also wore.
DOWNEY: By the way, to him, the T-shirt was the reveal of the movie.
How did you bond off-camera?
DOWNEY: I wanted to rehearse, but far be it for me to cut into Zach's Chablis time-
GALIFIANAKIS: I've never had Chablis in my life, but it sounds good.
Robert, you're a dad [to son Indio, 17]. Do you think about parenthood, Zach?
GALIFIANAKIS: I think about it a lot. The one thing in the last 10 years of my life that I have wanted to be is a father. But more than them being teenagers, I have a real problem if, like, a child fell off the couch and hit their head. That's the big worry for me. Everything else doesn't bother me.
DOWNEY: So just as long as the things that are inevitable don't occur, you'll be all right?
GALIFIANAKIS: That's right.
DOWNEY: Okay, but you can't baby-proof the west side of Los Angeles! You should practice with a doll first.
GALIFIANAKIS: A baby that is made out of nerf. A nerf baby!
DOWNEY: That is the best advice ever.
Downey, who has a son from a previous marriage, says he and his producer wife want to have kids: "We decided to do it." Galifianakis has been dating Lundberg (right), a former ballerina and cofounder of the charity Growing Voices, for over a year.
