Iron Man star Paul Bettany: 'I've never seen the films'

Thursday October 18, 2012

Actor Paul Bettany has admitted he has never seen an Iron Man film despite starring in all of them.

Playing computer Jarvis in the Marvel series, the actor only receives a portion of the script when he performs his part.

He said: "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."

The Master and Commander star admitted that he does get confused by fans of the film. "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 added: "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.
