Iron Man 3 movie star Robert Downey Jr has praised the LEGO Iron Man toys on TV show Daybreak.

The actor apparently said the toys were “really cute”. He also joked that the way the LEGO Iron Man was sitting made him look "as drunk as a wheelbarrow" and like he was "sitting like a buddha".

After picking up the mini LEGO Iron Man, interviewer Lorraine Kelly asked how he felt about being an action figure, to which he replied: “I can’t tell you how much I enjoy it”.

Iron Man 3 is in cinemas now.
