The Marvel movies have been taking quite a bit of abuse lately, and now Iron Man actor, Paul Bettany, has come out of the woodwork to knock the House of Ideas down a peg. Bettany has voiced Jarvis, the computer system in Iron Man’s armor, in both Iron Man films and The Avengers, but in a recent interview with Digital Spy, the actor claims he hasn’t even seen the movies.
"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." He continued, “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 actor then said, "It's not because of any snobbishness, it's just not my thing.” He continued, “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."
Sounds like a pretty sweet gig to us. It’s always refreshing to hear an actor come out truthfully about these movies, instead of just telling fanboys what they want to hear.
