Bettany hasn't seen Iron Man role

Paul Bettany has admitted he's never seen Iron Man despite being the voice of computer Jarvis.

The Master And Commander star said that he doesn't receive the whole script for the films, starring Robert Downey Jr and Gwyneth Paltrow.

He told Digital Spy: "I feel like a pirate... This is robbery. I walk in, I say some lines on a piece of paper for two hours, and then they give me a bag of money and I leave and I go about my day.

"I sort of feel guilty, because at least acting can be exhausting, with long hours... but I do nothing! And I've never seen one of them."

He added: "There's a bunch of my movies that I haven't seen, this just happens to be one of them. I'm plagued by fanboys who love Jarvis... They come up and I've got no idea what they're talking about. I've got no idea about Iron Man - I don't get sent the whole script... I have no idea what those movies are like."

He said of not watching the films: "That's not because of any snobbishness, it's just not my thing. There are lots of movies I've been in that I haven't seen."

Iron Man 3 is released next year.
