Being a huge Robert Downey Jr fan I'm always on the look out for news and tidbits about my favorite leading man. Well, after finding this amazing and heartfelt message from the Iron Man 3 premiere in LA, I couldn't resist sharing it with you all.

RDJ was told on the red carpet that American troops were going to be watching the premier of Iron Man 3 via Skype, the 49-year old actor had some amazing comments to make.

Bear in mind that his own FATHER, Robert Downey Sr, served in the army as a young man, so Robert's message comes straight from the heart.

I can't tell you what a pleasure it is to be able to share this evening with you. What y'all are doing is giving us the freedom and the ability to have entertainment and live the way we do and it just means the world to me.

I'm so glad for RDJ that he was able to give back in a small way to those that have given so much. He really spoke on behalf of everyone in America by giving thanks and acknowledging the huge efforts that the troops make.

I admire each and every one of you so much and it's a thrill and a pleasure

RDJ finished his heartfelt message to the troops with a fist pump and peace sign. Hell yeah! This guy IS Tony Stark!
