“Iron man” star Robert Downey Jr dressed up as Tigger to cheer up a sick boy named Daniel who has cystic fibrosis and invited him to the LA premiere of “Captain America: Civil War”.
The 50-year-old actor put his celebrity status to good use by uploading on his Instagram, a photo of himself wearing an orange and yellow tiger costume and crouching down as if he were bouncing on his tail like the character, and put up his paws, reported Ace Showbiz.
He posed barefoot on grass and wore aviator sunglasses.
“Mr Stark here. This is for Daniel who was having a rough day recently. When I’m in the dumps, I’ve found this little getup to be helpful. PS Would you like to come to the LA premiere of ‘Captain America: Civil War’ as my guest? If so, have your people call my people. All the best” he said.
The actor’s heartwarming gesture came after Daniel’s mom reached out to him via Instagram, detailing on the 7-year-old boy’s condition and difficult life with the disorder.
She used Instagram to contact the star to get a “little lift” for her little boy after he was bullied at school.
