Gwyneth Paltrow has branded her Iron Man co-star Robert Downey Junior a "wimp" - after she donned the superhero suit for their latest film.

The actress, who stars as Pepper Potts with Downey in Iron Man 3, says the new film was her chance to "kick ass".

Appearing on tomorrow night's Graham Norton Show, she reveals: "I get to do a bit of action and I get to wear the Iron Man suit for a while - it's very cool.

"It's quite cumbersome but not so bad. I thought it was going to be terrible because in the first two movies Robert would put on the suit and start sweating, he'd have a nervous breakdown and would meditate and cry. He was in hell.

"So, I was like, 'Wow, I'd better start mentally preparing myself for the suit,' and I put it on and was like, 'This guy is a wimp, it's really not that bad."'

The actress tells the chat show host that her son Moses is "a big fan" of the films.

"I'll never forget his face when he saw me walk out in the suit," she reveals. "It was a really good moment."

This week's show, which also includes Olympic runner Mo Farah and comic Lee Mack, is on BBC One at 10.35pm tomorrow.
