"I couldn't get her off of me. It was embarrassing," he said, recounting the pair's onscreen love scene while at a press conference Friday.
Paltrow remembers things a little differently. "It was great because both my husband [Coldplay's Chris Martin] and his wife [Iron Man 2 executive producer Susan Downey] were right there."
Downey, however, had more to reveal about his costar's reaction to his onscreen romantic prowess….
"She said to me that I didn't know what I was doing, like it didn't feel good," he said. "I'm like, 'You know what? First of all, we're all friends, so what would be creepy would be if I was coming off all sexy to you—which, by the way, I've done that in movies and it creeps them out. So what am I going to creep you out for?'"
Paltrow laughed off Downey's contention that he needed to tone down his iron-clad allure, but the erstwhile Tony Stark had the last laugh.
"Despite what she said on set, she still thinks about it."
