Downey Jr: I didn't recognise Zach

Robert Downey Jr wasn't exactly sure who his co-star was

Robert Downey Jr has admitted he wasn't sure who his co-star Zach Galifianakis was when they first met.

The pair star in Todd Phillips' latest movie Due Date, about a businessman who is forced into a road trip with an aspiring actor so he can get home for his child's birth.

Discussing how Zach approached him on the street to reveal they were working on a movie together, Rob confessed: "Susan my wife was there and was worried for me. I tend not to recognise people. I didn't know exactly who Zach was yet."

He joked: "I looked like I was going to drop him on the pavement. I don't like punching Zach, but it has to be done."

Zach added: "He doesn't punch me. He pinches me, and it drives me absolutely insane."

Meanwhile, Zach, who also starred in The Hangover, said the secret behind their on-screen chemistry is "insults, insults, insults".

The film had its London premiere in Leicester Square on Wednesday night.

Once you dispose the junk, you'll be able to zip through chores like a hot knife through butter.More
